I love it!

Awesome work!

Just one question, why have Firefox open the finished scrot after it is done?

I see the xdg-open "${NAME}" command so perhaps it is a setting issue on my end

Hi there VastOne,
Running these commands in terminal will open two of the most common image types in Mirage instead of Firefox,

Code: [Select]
xdg-mime default mirage.desktop image/png
Code: [Select]
xdg-mime default mirage.desktop image/jpeg
You can use 'xdg-mime' command to determine file type,

Code: [Select]
xdg-mime query filetype example.pdf
Will get you,

Code: [Select]
application/pdf
And then you can change the xdg-open association for pdf like this,

Code: [Select]
xdg-mime default evince.desktop application/pdf
You can view the current default xdg-open application for a file type like this,

Code: [Select]
xdg-mime query default text/plain
Will print something like this,

Code: [Select]
medit.desktop
Cheers!!!

I tried all the options.

Capturing the desktop and selected area work. When I tried the "window in focus" option, there is an error -

Code: [Select]
scrot: invalid option -- 'u'
and the script finishes by taking a screenshot of the entire desktop. Taking a screenshot of the window in focus only isn't listed in the scrot man page. That an option with another app like feh?

the upload to imagur appears to work; need to remember to copy the link before returning to main menu.



Well done!!

Great explanation and how to for anyone needing this.. I had already made the changes but wondered if there was a reason why Firefox was used

Now that it is changed, everything is functioning to my liking, and I will make the following changes to the default ISO:

Code: [Select]
xdg-mime default mirage.desktop image/png

xdg-mime default mirage.desktop image/jpeg

This is working fine for me here on VSIDO PackRat.. is it possible an app may be missing? wmctrl mayhap?

No, xdotool and wmctrl are like the first two apps I add to any and all distros (why are they not default?)

It may be a difference in the way scrot is compiled for Void. If you try:

Code: [Select]
scrot -u
in a terminal, what is the result?

The maintainer at Void may not have enabled an option the Debian maintainer did - (better example, java is not enabled for LibreOffice in Void). There is also no "u" option listed in the manpage for scrot on my Void systems.

xdotool and wmctrl  are defaults in a certain VSIDO distro..  :P  8)

scrot -u does do the focused window as it should for me and drops it in the directory with a filedate name

Hi VastOne,

Here is a better way to implement this in VSIDO ISO,

Make the following directory structure in user's home directory

Code: [Select]
~/.local/share/applications

And create 'mimeapps.list' file there,

Code: [Select]
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

And in the 'mimeapps.list' file we can add associations and we can also set default applications.

Here is an example 'mimeapps.list' file,

Code: [Select]
[Default Applications]
image/jpeg=mirage.desktop
image/png=mirage.desktop
application/pdf=evince.desktop

[Added Associations]
image/jpeg=mirage.desktop;
image/png=mirage.desktop;
application/pdf=evince.desktop;

We can add as many filetype associations we want and/or associate as many default applications as we want  in the 'mimeapps.list' file.

I think this can be easily implemented via "/etc/skel" in VSIDO ISO.

Cheers!!!

Hi there PackRat,
The original version of Scrot doesn't have the "-u, --focused" option to capture currently focused window. I haven't used Void Linux so I can't say about its Scrot implementation but Slackware for sure doesn't have the "-u, --focused" option. Debian uses the patched version of the Scrot that has the "-u, --focused" option. I think Arch Linux also patches its implementation of Scrot with Debian's modifications. Here are the patches implemented by Debian if you are interested,

Debian-Scrot-Patches

Thanks; patch failed and I didn't want to mess with it.

Scrot is a simple binary so I downloaded the deb file from the Debian Sid packages. Extracted the files and copied scrot to /usr/local/bin/debscrot

Edited your script to use debscrot; script is hitting on all cylanders now.
