    For me all these applications are shit, I don’t need the capture to be immediately processed or what, just saved in a png file or jpg file while I am immediately capturing the next image pressing the key.

    I don’t want a shit as Shutter which open a window and then must click on the right symbol to hope to get a screen capture, but which oftenly fails before 10 captures are done and which gives artifacts with videos

    Make us a real Gadwin Prinscreen Linux tool or I shall buy a MS Win 10 license – last warning

    I capture videos as well as webcams online shows

    Spectacle is still one of the best screenshot tools. :)

    I like deepin.
    My usage is mainly annotating (drawing rectangles, circles, arrows). It is a step up from the gnome screenshot.

  4. Wender says:

    The best is the Deepin Scrot = )

    https://github.com/lupoDharkael/flameshot is new app that very light and quick, allow to make screenshots, edit it and upload to imgur via single click.

    In my opinion Deepin Scrot is the better screenshot tool.

    You also have “Take a shot!” (tas) and Screeny, both of them quite useful and simple.

  8. Azeez Adigun says:

    It should be apt-get install shutter and not as stated above. The above command will result in an Invalid operation error via the terminal.

  9. Rafael Granado says:

    sudo apt-get INSTALL shutter

  10. Robert says:

    There is also an application called screencloud from here https://screencloud.net/ when you click on the application it sits in the panel and is available whenever you wish to use a screenshot tool, also it has another feature you can annotate from the window that pops up after the shot is taken.
