I've been trying to create a short-cut key for grabbing part of the screen.
If I run the command
/usr/bin/gnome-screenshot --area the program I want runs and does what I want. When I createa a custom action in the keyboard shortcuts menu, and I activate the command (using ctrl-prnscr) the command fires up but behaves as though the
--area option isn't there (it grabs the whole screen instead of giving me a cursor to choose with). If I run
ps -eaf |grep screen I get:
$ ps -eaf |grep screen yfarjoun 2082 1 0 Oct29 ? 00:00:21 gnome-screensaver yfarjoun 17730 1 0 17:34 ? 00:00:00 gnome-screenshot --area yfarjoun 17735 17730 1 17:34 ? 00:00:00 gnome-screenshot --area yfarjoun 17741 2599 0 17:34 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto screen
So the option is definitely transfered to the command....
Why is it not honoring the option? How can I fix this?
