    I've implemented the possibility to select an area which then will be uploaded directly to imgur and the url will be saved in the clipboard. If some1 is interested leave some comments, then I'll ask the author if I can fork this project and implement the uploading.

    Hi, nice tool. Like it. Is there any possibility of adding control over the "Print" - Key, so i can use your applet do define its default behaviour?

    what do you mean by settings window?

    since i can't edit, i should atleast amend my statement... it doesn't seem to take pictures of settings windows.

    this only seems to take screenshots of my desktop wallpaper and NOT of the windows/programs that are running above it. that can't be the intended behavior right?

    if ur still looking for a better icon, changing line 58 to 'this.set_applet_icon_symbolic_name("camera-photo-symbolic");' makes it look like

  14. billynick says:

    super work sir! as for the icon the best ive found is camera-photo-symbolic.svg in /usr/share/icons/gnome/scaleable/devices....but it only seems to be in 16x16..i guess that can be enlarged in inkscape tho..

    and now 1 3 and 5 sec delay times with drop down menu

  16. infektedpc says:

    4 years ago

    yeah i know im working on it i think its a good idea

  17. billynick says:

    4 years ago

    thanks infektedpc, ill use that. although i meant that it would be nice to have the 5 sec delay as an option in the drop down menu in addition to the standard full screen option

  18. infektedpc says:

    Hey billynick heres a modified version that uses a 5 sec delay for whole screen shots

    the recording program for the video is kazam screencaster

  20. billynick says:

    4 years ago

    very nice but could you perhaps add an option to take a screenshot of the whole screen with a delay, lets say 5 seconds? this is a feature i use a lot

    Nice applet. I will use this. Can I also ask what the applet you are using to record the youtube video is?
