"Fancy" screenshot tool not working
#1
Below is a link listed from the Mobian wiki that should take screenshots once the "required packages are installed" my issue is it says notify-send isn't installed but when I use "sudo apt install bash libglib2.0-bin" as per the notify-send GitHub page, it says everything is installed. Has anyone tried this and had success? I'm at work right now or else I would dig a bit deeper.

OK, tried it again and updated the instructions somewhat:

https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php...screenshot

These are the dependencies:
Code:
sudo apt install libnotify-bin grim

and this is the screenshot script (I adapted it to store in /home/mobian rather /home/purism

Code:
#!/bin/bash
SCREENSHOT=${HOME}/Pictures/$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S).png
notify-send -t 1000 screenshot "Taking a screenshot in 5 seconds"
sleep 5
grim "$SCREENSHOT"
notify-send screenshot "Screenshot stored at ${SCREENSHOT}

Thank you, mate! I will fix the script today when I get home. I appreciate you getting back to me.

Totally unrelated but I figure you know more about this then I do. Do you know where the information is stored when running the command to scale an app?

I think that this script is only not so useful for the main screen, since that one can only be seen if no apps are running.
In that case you can connect with SSH, and run grim from there.
Except unless you want to show off the background, it might have no meaning to make a screenshot of the main screen anyway.
