Screen capture to clipboard to PASTE [SOLVED]

bl-imgur-upload and all other tools are working great
But I would like to be able to PASTE what I captured right after  I "screen captured it"

To avoid other steps ( open the pict file, copy it etc)

Any ideas ?

Re: Screen capture to clipboard to PASTE [SOLVED]

I think xfce4-screenshooter has a direct to clipboard option; something like:

xfce4-screenshooter -c

If that works, you can make a key binding.

You can also use maim with xclip - pretty sure both are in Debian Stable repos.

I tried that myself, it does appear to be deprecated.

The maim + xclip method works though; set up fluxbox and i3 keybindings for it.

Re: Screen capture to clipboard to PASTE [SOLVED]

Use maim

This is my scrot -> clipboard script, run via keybinds and from the graphics submenu

#!/bin/bash
##
## scrotclip by damo Feb 2019
# Requires maim, xclip, xdotool

# USAGE: scrotclip [clipwin|clipall|clipsel|clipclean|clipall10]

arg="$1"
case "$arg" in
    clipwin )   maim -i $(xdotool getactivewindow) | xclip -selection clipboard -target image/png
                notify-send -t 6000 "Active window screenshot saved to clipboard"
                ;;
    clipall )   maim | xclip -selection clipboard -target image/png
                notify-send -t 6000 "Desktop screenshot saved to clipboard"
                ;;
    clipsel )   maim -s | xclip -selection clipboard -target image/png
                notify-send -t 6000 "Selected area screenshot saved to clipboard"
                ;;
    clipclean)  maim -d 3 -u | xclip -selection clipboard -target image/png  # wait 3 secs (close menu, hide cursor)
                notify-send -t 6000 "Screenshot saved to clipboard"
                ;;
    clipall10)  maim -d 10 | xclip -selection clipboard -target image/png  # wait 10 secs
                notify-send -t 6000 "Screenshot saved to clipboard"
                ;;
            *)  notify-send -t 6000 "Nothing saved to clipboard..."
                ;;
esac
exit

Re: Screen capture to clipboard to PASTE [SOLVED]

cool almost perfect !

I ran scrot.sh clipsel  and could past the picture in signal OR Whatsapp or when composing windows WITH SUCCESS

But when pasting into THunderbrid (in an eMail composing window) , some garbage was pasted.... normal I can past a pict within the email window...  Any ideas ? Probably some encoding thing... ?
