Re: [puredyne] Puredyne Digest, Vol 76, Issue 22

You mean the xfce Keyboard settings menu, which, when you click
"add",  offers you a dialogue box, giving you a space to type in your command and
nowhere to put the actual shortcut key?  And when you press OK, thinking maybe
you'll get a chance to define the key in the next step, just brings up a dialogue box
that offers only a "cancel" button.
Yeah, that works just fine.

Well, one thing about GNU/Linux is that there are many ways to 'skin a
cat'. One of the reasons there might not have been a PS/PDF viewer is
because there are many choices out there, and people tend to prefer a
particular application for certain things. Its easy enough to install, so
sometimes things like that might be left out of a live distro.

As far as the screenshot stuff goes.... XFCE has a Keyboard dialog in the
Settings menu where you can map certain commands to a key combination. I
just mapped the command:

import -window root screen.png

to the Print Screen button and it seems to be working just fine. Of course,
every time you press it, the file ~/screen.png will be overwritten. There
might be a way to expand that command to do more for you. Just use your
imagination. And documentation.
