    Screen Shot Application?

    I am a big fan of the shutter application (although I hate the .386 libraries required to run it).

    The primary reason is that after capturing an area of the screen I can immediately send it to the printer -- simple workflow.
    I have tried several other apps including gnome-screenshot, flameshot but all require that you copy the image to the clipboard and then put it into an app to print.

    Am I missing something obvious?
    Any other apps I have missed?

    I use import, which is part of ImageMagick tools. It would be trivial to setup a tiny script to capture something, drop the file into /tmp/, print it, then delete it. Just need the correct printer filter installed from CUPs.

    With xdotool, you could assign a key just for this purpose. Perhaps the "PrintScn" button? Plus, import lets you select the rectangle to be included.

    Also, beware that Wayland breaks many screen/window capture programs.

    Spectacle has a Print option under Save & Exit (Ctrl+P). I've only ever used it to print to pdf.
    It would likely pull in quite a few kde depenencies to your Budgie desktop.
    (Edit - curiosity got the better of me - yes it will print a captured area directly to paper.)

    Turns out that the solution was right under my nose so to speak.
    I use Ubuntu Budgie and there is an Screen shot applet. I installed it and by clicking on the captured image it opens gThumbs with the image. Then a Ctl P and it prints.
