I need often to create Slides from portions of screen. I've found several tools like Shutter which are able to capture an image, however my need is to put the image directly in the Clipboard so that I can paste in in my LibreOffice quickly. Any idea ? Thanks!
Use gnome-screenshot (already on your system if you use Unity or Gnome)
The easiest is to use good old
gnome-screenshot, by default installed. Simply put the command:
under a shortcut key. The cursor will change into a cross, and your selection is copied to the clipboard directly.
Add it to a shortcut
Choose: System Settings > "Keyboard" > "Shortcuts" > "Custom Shortcuts". Click the "+" and add the command:
-a, --area Grab an area of the screen instead of the entire screen.
-c, --clipboard Send the grab directly to the clipboard.
shutter. Once installed, run it; you can snap a selection of screen directly (1) (and copy and paste immediatly with CTRL-C CTRL-V), or edit it (2) and add markers, labels, highlights and crops:
It has extensive configuration and can reside in your panel (3).
It's in the Universe repository, so it's just a
sudo apt-get install shutter
