Hidden Linux : KSnapshot

Filed under

KSnapshot is KDE's in-built screenshot grabber. Just hit the PrtScr key and you can save a screenshot in a wide range of formats. But there's more to KSnapshot than just formats.

Capture Mode has five snapshot options. Each hides the KSnapshot applicaton window and turns the cursor into a crosshair (+) but how you actually capture the shot depends on which mode you've selected.

* Full Screen : left-click to snap the whole screen.

* Window Under Cursor : left-click to snap the window you're pointing at.

* Region : left-click and drag with the mouse to select any area you like. Resizing handles around the sides of the selection enable further adjustment, or you can reposition the selection area by clicking and dragging it about. Press ENTER to actually make the snapshot or ESC to quit.

* Section of Window : move the cursor over an open window and you'll find it's individual sections highlighted by a red boundary box. Left-click to snap the one you want.

* Current Screen :

Blackphone Android-based (SilentOS) Reviews

  • Blackphone: privacy-obsessed smartphone aims to broaden its appeal
    Can you hear me now? Not if you’re eavesdropping on a Blackphone. Privacy company Silent Circle has released a second version of its signature handheld, a smartphone designed to quell the data scraping and web tracking that’s become such an integral part of the digital economy in the last few years (and whose results might well end up with the NSA, if the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act passes).

  • Five things that doomed the big and brilliant BlackBerry 10
    And being late matters. In a globalised technology industry, hundreds of smaller industries, and their own supply chains, all line themselves up alongside the winners. Being late and going it alone is suicidal. Ask Nokia: it envisaged a 'computer first, phone second world' as far back as 2002, when it started Linux development, and devoted billions to being sure it would be competitive when this world came about. But consumers and industry had already anointed a second platform.
