Print screen


Does any know of a print-screen utility for Linux Gnome ?

It must be possible to hit a key/buttom and send the active window to the printer. Without cut/paste to office.

There are several solutions for Windows.

Can't find something usefull for Linux.

Must work on Redhat/Cent OS.

You can simply use print screen key from keyboard that works pretty well in RHEL also.

Or you can use, applications > accessories > screenshot

Hi,

Several screenshot utils are around for just about any desktop. I use XFCE and there is an XFCE-screenshot util. On what Linux is not the issue, the Desktop Environment is key here, as you mentioned: Gnome, by the way "Linux Gnome" doens not exist, it's just Gnome . You're looking for a screen shooter for Gnome. Did you check the Repo by any chance? Filter on "gnome-screenshot"...

Luck!

Thor

Thanks.

I've found "shutter".
It looks okay....

The best would be, if the screen-shot goes directly to a predefined printer automatically.
In shutter i have to press <ALT>Print .. then <Ctrl> P, select printer.... well, its ok for now, but I will look for something better :-)

....umm, sorry, but those days are kinda ... over...gone are the days when you'd press the print-screen on the keyboard and a printer (somewhere in the office) came to life. This is because nowadays, so much more can be done with a screenprint...
Glad you found something

Thor

Well, the customer is maybe a bit conservative....they have been doing that for over 20 years, from wyse-terminals and later Windows. Now they run from a thin client and still want the feature.

....and not an impossible feature, maybe some scripting? I'd look somewhere into a "service" that is started at boot and that scans a key, then spawns the screenshooter and prints the thing...via CUPS...just a loose thought...

Edit
By the way, do realise that the printscreen key when pressed, just like that, will invoke the screen shot util (in most cases that I just tested...)

Well, "shutter" seems okay. With 2 key-strokes: <Alt><Print> + <Ctrl><P>. then select the printer.

Can I map a key on the keyboard to do the "<Alt><Print><Ctrl><P>" sequence ?

Hmm, suppose so...but it would - IMHO - take a sort of "listener" (read - daemonj) to achieve this, I guess...
