(solved) Debian Elive 2.0 has best screen capture. Fail to find it's name?


I look and look and it doesn't tell its name and whom made it so one can go there and install it on Firefox or whatever.
Have tested many of the addons for FF but none is as good as the one in Debian Elive 2.0 the unstable Elive don't have it. Ubuntu doesn't either.

Searched Debian and Elive sites and used google but fail to find it.

Could it be Shutter program that doesn't advertise itself?
Shutter is supposed to be a good screen grabber.

Hope somebody knows.

This screen grabber is activated by pushing the PrtScr button and not by clicking a symbol as the others are. So maybe it is built into Elive itself but not mentioned anywhere?

Hope somebody knows what it is named so I can find out more about it.
I want to use it on Elive 1.9 Zeitgeist.


Looking through a tutorial on Debian here in forum I find this mentioned

apt-get install ksnapshot

So can it be that one?

The best screen capture tool :
Code:
#!/bin/sh
import screen$RANDOM.jpg;
exit 0;
This tool includes a cross hair for an exact cut.
( Besides it can also "shoot" the whole page.)
The package 'imagemagick' is required for it to work.

The only I found that does it in linux is Gnome-screenshot.

I read about your suggestion here

http://packages.debian.org/unstable/...cs/imagemagick

Does it mention capture stills from streaming videos while they continue streaming?

I am not good at reading texts. Some kind of dyslexi deficit.

I tested AntiX and the screen capture they had did not catch streaming stills video

""..capture stills from streaming videos

No problem, just try a copy of the script :
Make it executable, and click it.

ok, I do that when I find a stable elive to download. this one crashed just after me had hard rebooted it due to the mouse stopped working.
It repaired something on the hdd and since then no boot at all. So I need to install again but I don't trust the 1.9.61 anymore and the 1,9.60 is not available for download anymore. and 2.0 one need to be member of paypal.
