April 2020 Screenshots Thread

Desktop customizations, a good way to self-quarantine...

Please use thumbnails. Do not embed images larger than approx 250x250px (62,500px) into posts, use thumbnails linking to a hosted image instead. Thanks!

Various online free image hosts are available, such as Imgur, imgbb, freeimage.host, scrot.cloud etc.

Use the following BB code for posting please:

[url=<url of full size image>][img]<url of thumbnail>[/img][/url]

** Update for Imgur users **

Imgur only provides the link to the full image, but just add "t" to the name to get a thumbnail link, and the filename extension eg:

[url=https://i.imgur.com/7S2EJEg.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/7S2EJEgt.png[/img][/url]
                                  ^                                  ^

Imgur also provides a variety of thumbnail sizes, and the linked BBCode, in the image "View and edit" screen.

imgur wrote:

Sizes:  Original · Small Square · Big Square · Small Thumbnail · Medium Thumbnail · Large Thumbnail · Huge Thumbnail

Repeat: To get the linked direct image you need make sure to add the file extension to the url.  Their recommended BB code doesn't really convey this properly.

Once again when choosing a thumbnail size please keep in mind our approx 250x250px (62,500px) thumbnail file size constraints.

Stay safe, everyone!

Hmm, @Dobbie03 missed the memo. Cross-posting for him...

"Working from home.  Not enjoying myself at all.

I miss my family.  This lockdown sucks."



Perspective is everything. As a confirmed anarchist who's being forced to sit in front of a computer, an electric violin and a bicycle in a pretty city with great weather that appears abandoned...

I've been training for this my whole life!

I don't think "sir" is a word in the Australian vernacular. You should be using "cobber" or "mate".

Yes NZ is well away from Australia. 

I'm a shut-in anyway and I really don't spend time outside of my family.  Mainly because, I don't like people.
What I am struggling with is not being able to see my extended family, my Mum, Dad. My sisters and brother.  My nieces and nephews.  I come from a particularly close family and not being able to physically see them outside a video call is tough.

Saying that though, it's a small price to pay to keep them safe.

Apologies for off topic ramblings.

Agree, but due to very low-end hardware i'll lose some mouse/gui/menu faster response with compton running. I have saved some compton settings from openbox+tint2 tho.

Thank you, same to your configs. As always good work with those fine GTK themes.

Cheers and Congrat everyone for your tweaks.

Re: April 2020 Screenshots Thread

I very much appreciate people posting direct image links:

Did you know that you can open those directly with e.g. feh?

Me too, i'd like to check the images as direct link instead of click here or there. I always do direct link to my scrots thanks to flickr host.

Sorry, have no idea or script how to open images of Web instantly via FEH. I haven't thought of such to say, Been using FEH for years.
The thought is interesting and would be even more interesting if realized.

From my file manager i use those two simple bash-script:

# open image with single click

#!/bin/sh
feh -F --title "%N" "$(dirname "$1")" --start-at "$1" --font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/10 --menu-font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/10 --menu-bg ~/.scripts/titlebg.jpg --draw-exif

# open images as thumbnail mode

#!/bin/sh
feh -NXE 225 -y 168 -W 1680 --font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/0 --menu-font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/10 --menu-bg ~/.scripts/tilebg.jpg --title "Thumbnail Mode" --thumbnail --action "feh -F --menu-bg ~/.scripts/titlebg.jpg --font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/10 --menu-font ~/.fonts/iosevka-term-medium/10 %f -F -Z -x -q -D 50 . --draw-exif"

# Sets background image for desktop view via WM or .xinitrc

feh --randomize --bg-scale ~/pictures/*

I only have these from FEH. BTW Feh rocks!

Re: April 2020 Screenshots Thread

Maybe these tips should be in another forum section! I am using a thunar custom action:

feh -T thumb_viewer %d

With the feh theme ("-T thumb_viewer") in .config/feh/themes:

thumb_viewer --thumbnails --cache-thumbnails --thumb-height 256 --thumb-width 256 \
            --limit-width 1920 --auto-rotate \
            -A "feh --auto-rotate --max-dimension 0 x 900 %F"

The auto-rotate is handy when viewing camera downloads.

They don't last, I can see drawings of fat bellies under your scrot. Postimg ad algorithm seems to think that since I'm watching Linux screenshots, I'm either overweight or in need of female touch. Or both.

Don't feel bad, you just described two-thirds of the world's males. At least you're watching Linux screenshots and not Tiger King or something.

Anyway, just right-click any scrot at postimage.cc and choose "View Image".
