Is possible to take an screenshot of just area of my desktop using xfce? I have tried uisng Shift+Print screen, but doesn't work..

Im running 4.10 on Ubuntu 14.04.


Use screenshot, the Xfce4 Screenshooter is part of the xfce-Goodies. It can capture areas as well as fullscreen and application windows.

    Note that by default, the "Print Screen" key on keyboard is configured as xfce4-screenshooter -f, where -f means fullscreen, bypassing the select region, active window or fullscreen options. Removing the -f on the default config makes the trick. – bistoco Sep 11 '16 at 2:40

    On top of @Jan answer, you need to configure Shift+Print shortcut and run the xfce4-screenshooter with the -r param. i.imgur.com/iLiUZHf.png – NeverEndingQueue Apr 21 '17 at 6:27
