    how I can save file name on a variable after taking screenshot with scrot.
    here is my code but not working:
    scrot /var/www/html/pdesk/screenshots/’sc-%d_%m_%Y_%H_%M_%S.jpg’ -u -d 1 -q 50 -e ‘fnm=$f’
    echo $fnm #it print blank
    scrot /var/www/html/pdesk/screenshots/’sc-%d_%m_%Y_%H_%M_%S.jpg’ -u -d 1 -q 50 -e “fnm2=$f”
    echo $fnm2 #it also print blank

    can you please help me to save file name in a variable?


  3. Hello Shutter Team,
    Shutter is absolutely the best screenshot program in Linux.
    However, I’m visually impaired. When taking a screenshot, the complete screen turns dark.
    Is there a way to keep the screen ‘normal’ when taking a screenshot?

    This problem prevents me from moving from Windows and MWSnap 3 to Linux and Shutter.

    Hope you can help me and many visually impaired.
    With kind regards,

  4. Absolutely the most amazing tool. Using in KDE for computer science class. Great assistant to any documentation project.
