Screenshot upload and share script for ubutnu or any linux
Why Did I Code this?
The simply answer is “because I needed this tool”. the thing is I have been around in the IRC’s and various other help forums and if I ever had a doubt or if I was helping someone, the most crucial thing was a screenshot of the current set up. I have been using linux as my primary Os for years now. I missed a screenshot upload tool. every time I take a screenshot, I have to do a lot of stuffs, just to share the screenshot. It was wating a lot of time. So I thought why don’t I code something so that everything will be done automatically!
Unfortunately this script has a few dependabilities.
All of these will be installable via your linux distributions’ software manager.
After downloading you can either
- Run the command “python scrshot.py” and select the area for taking the screenshot.
- Or Assign this command to any short keys(this depends on you distribution – on ubuntu this can be done by going to Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts 0> Custome Shortkey, type down the command ie” python “<path to the downloaded scrshot.py file>, and then assign the shortkey to it!)
