    Can't find scrot in Lubuntu 12.04.

    Previously running Ubuntu 13.1 but now I'm using Lubuntu 12.04 live disk due to an upgrade crash. I want to take screenshots to post on the forums but can't find 'scrot'. Synaptic says it's installed but Software Centre doesn't list it as installed or available.

    Thanx for any help you guys.

    Would
    Code:
    scrot scrot.png
    work ? You'll have a full desktop screenshot in your /home. You can refine the options, see
    Code:
    man scrot

    Woohoo! Thank you bapoumba, you are a !! Interestingly, it made two images, one with the terminal in the middle and one without. But it'll do for me.

    Have several donuts!

    If you want donuts _with_ strawberries, I found this :
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...08#post9552908

    The icon path was not correct, I edited the /usr/share/applications/mtpaint-grab.desktop file a bit :

    Code:
    Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Name=Grab screenshot
    Exec=mtpaint -s
    Icon=camera
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Categories=Application;Graphics;
    And included it in the Panel Application Launch Bar. It grabs the whole desktop, but then you can easily resize it to your needs.
