I want to take a screenshot. The default screenshot app (16.04) works fine, but I need to open gimp to cut the image. I just want a part of the window.

It would be great if there is a simple screenshot app which loads fast and which allows me to cut the image directly, without staring gimp.

Note: PrtScn button doesn't work on my keyboard

  • Do you want to take screenshot of section of your screen? without manually cropping it afterwords – Sumeet Deshmukh May 23 '17 at 9:03
  • @SumeetDeshmukh yes, I want a part of a web page which I see in firefox. – guettli May 23 '17 at 9:04

    try doing Shift + PrtScn (print screen), you'd be able to select the area on screen – Sumeet Deshmukh May 23 '17 at 9:06
  • @SumeetDeshmukh the PrtScn key does not work on my keyboard. – guettli May 23 '17 at 9:09
  • then how do you generally take screenshot? – Sumeet Deshmukh May 23 '17 at 9:10

Try Shutter

sudo apt-get install shutter

It's more than a screenshot tool.

You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.

    Yes, thank you. Works fine. I upvote this question. I will wait some days until I give the final "best answer". – guettli May 23 '17 at 9:12
