Unhappy Desktop Ruler for angle measurement


Hi,
I was wondering if there is any program for linux that can measure an angle of an image on the desktop such as MB-Ruler for windows. Anybody can help me with this?
Thanks

I think Kruler can do this in KDE.

Nope... KRuler is just a ruler. It does not have angle measurement capabilities...

What you can do then is take a screenshot and use The GIMP's Angles and Measurements button for such calculations. It takes a bit longer than MB-ruler, but it should work for now. If you feel up to it, you could clone MB-ruler for KDE or GNOME, or attempt to run it using WINE.
