    xfce4-screenshooter copy to clipboard from command line

    Hi,

    My xfce4-screenshooter GUI has the option Copy to the Clipboard, but I could not find this option in its' command line help.

    I'm trying to bind printscreen key with this. I know that in order for the option to work I need to have the application always running (in GUI thre is option Close the application after screenshot , again somenthing that I can not find in command line).

    by command line help you mean "man xfce4-screenshooter" or "xfce4-screenshooter --help"?

    Yes, terminal command line help.

    I manged to get an item (of xfce4-screenshooter) on my panel that after some configuration does what I need, but I would like to bind this action to the Printscreen key (thus I need the command for it)

    it's in the help commands.

    Code:
    xfce4-screenshooter -whs $HOME/Desktop

    Thank you, but this command does not put the printscreen in the clipboard (so I can paste it somewhere else). This command just saves the printscreen (without a save dialog) in the given directory.

    then it don't do that. look around for a different screen-shoot tool. i know gnome's has that option cause i can see it, you can also check out scrot or import which are command line, i don't know if they have that option though.

    I know that there is other software able to do this, I just want to do it with this one. And the soft can do this (see the print screen from GUI with copy to clipboard option).

    Also, as I said, I was able to have a launcher in the panel to do exactly what I need, and I just want to associate this action to the printscreen key

    you try just putting the command that calls that? (right click your launcher> properties for the command)

    It is not that kind of launcher (where you specify the command). I added it by right click on panel->add new items ->Screnshoot (and then configure the options for it)
