In Karmic, shutter used to have a commandline option called
--selection, which I've used in a hack to replace
gnome-screenshot with the funcionality of shutter.
However, this option doesn't not exist anymore, but instead
--select exists... the problem being, that
--select will immediately open the shutter mainwindow, without allowing me to select anything. The contextmenu of shutter still has the 'Selection' option, which makes me wonder why the commandline option had been removed.
Is there a different way to toggle the Selection option in shutter from the commandline?
