Description Christoph Wickert 2009-01-02 18:27:14 EST
Spec URL: http://cwickert.fedorapeople.org/review/xfce4-screenshooter.spec
SRPM URL: http://cwickert.fedorapeople.org/review/xfce4-screenshooter-
The Xfce Screenshooter utility allows you to capture the entire screen, the 
active window or a selected region. You can set the delay that elapses before 
the screenshot is taken and the action that will be done with the screenshot: 
save it to a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, or open it using another 

Successor of the xfce4-screenshooter-plugin (bug # 179202). Basically this is a re-review because the package has been renamed and split into standalone app and panel plugin.

1. rpmlint says: 
xfce4-screenshooter-plugin.x86_64: W: no-documentation

which can be ignored. 

2. I see you have
in the desktop file. Is that really intended?
Doesn't that lessen the need for splitting out the plugin, if 
it's only going to be used in Xfce anyhow? On the other hand, other 
DE's have their own screenshot applications, so perhaps thats adding too much 
clutter. In any case, up to you. 

Neither of these are blockers, so this package is

Regarding the OnlyShowIn: Both Gnome and KDE already have Screenshot Utilities, so I'm maybe better of using NotShowIn=GNOME;KDE;

New Package CVS Request

Comment 7 Jason Landstrom 2009-08-13 13:51:13 EDT
I'm a newbie running Fedora 11 trying to run xfce4-screenshooter.  Everything works great except when I select a region with copy to clipboard I am unable to paste it into OpenOffice Impress like I can with gnome screenshot.
Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2009-08-13 14:15:27 EDT
This closed review is not the place for bugs. ;) 

Please file a new bug on the xfce4-screenshooter package?
