Well, I just installed Shutter in Kubuntu 12.04; it was in the repos, to my surprise. Nice. Thanks for the tip, definitely looks like a nice option. I had actually been adding KSnapshot to my GNOME and Xfce desktops because I couldn't get all of the types of screenshots I wanted with those DEs' default screenshot tools. So I've been happy with KSnapshot, but from what I'm seeing so far, Shutter does look better.

But I wonder if Shutter will ever be available in "GTK-free" Chakra...

Doubt it'll ever be because of that.

If you want to use shutter with bindings, a good shortcut is 'shutter -c -a -d 3'. That will capture the active window after a delay of 3 seconds and will include the cursor. EXACTLY the capture I usually need to do.

Okay, thanks. But I can see that you can also use the Shutter GUI to capture a window with a delay (and include the cursor). Just did it. Nice app.

Of course, isn't Asunder a GTK app? And other GTK apps are available in the Chakra CCR, so maybe it's just a matter of putting in a request? I don't know, haven't been using Chakra for very long, and I don't know how easy it is to get specific apps added to the CCR.

This is the first time I've ever gotten Chakra to install. I always try to do an online install, which apparently their installer is horribly borked, so it always failed. This time I finally tried choosing to do an offline installation, and lo and behold it actually worked. I really want to like Chakra since it's fast and uses pacman. I was a HUGE fan of Arch until they decided to start breaking it every 3 weeks just for the fun of it. I got tired of being in a chrooted installation fixing things more often than I could just be in my OS WORKING (slight exaggeration), so I dumped them. But Chakra, in theory, would be exactly what I'd want. KDE-centric OS based on the Arch tools where the devs don't have the brains of squirrels so they're not changing their minds more than their underwear.

Lol! Yep, I agree with that part! Well, good luck, no distro's perfect.

Sadly, tis true. Debian testing comes close with Liquorix and deb-multimedia sources. Chakra could come close if they'd not be quite so anal about GTK stuff. Mageia would be close if they'd just offer the modern version of Firefox as an alternative to offering ESR, beta and alpha builds but no stable current build.
