    Question Screenshot Pre-set

    Hi all,
    I find that I am constantly taking screenshots and then cropping them with GIMP, etc. How can I change the default program which Screenshot 'goes' to when I open up a screenshot.

    In other words I would like to have this pull down menu be selected to GIMP by default.

    I tried looking in /user/ and /usr but too much junk.
    Any suggestions,
    M

    PS I have looked over the XFCE website and find nothing yet...

    Look for: file:///usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/xfce4-screenshooter.html

    It shows you the command line options (as a minimum you need "-o" with "-w" or "-f"), you can then edit the keybindings so it works as you want when you press PRTSC

    I learnt something too

    so
    Code:
    xfce4-screenshooter -f -o gimp
    in the keyboard shortcut opens gimp with the screenshot without any need for interaction with the screenshot dialog.

    Even better might be
    Code:
    xfce4-screenshooter -r -o gimp
    which allows you select a region to grab before opening up directly in gimp

    I guess a backup shortcut is needed for those occasions when you don't want to do this (CTRL+PRTSC will do it)

    IIRC I simply did a search on the /usr directory for "xfce4-shooter", and found the html file . Sometimes the program name is not what you might expect it to be.....
