Downloaded mtpaint from USM, activated it, and get this:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mtpaint
mtpaint: error while loading shared libraries: libjasper.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ 
USM has the Resolve Dependencies set. USM returns nothing for libjasper.

I need an app that allows me to cut and crop screen prints for posting here.

Thanks ncmprhnsbl.

Viewnoir appears to be the same as the Image Viewer in Cinnamon and neither does cutting and cropping. I've also tried, without success, pinta and GraphicsMagick.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ pinta
/usr/bin/pinta: line 5: /usr/bin/mono: No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ GraphicsMagick
bash: GraphicsMagick: command not found
guest@porteus:~$ graphicsmagick
bash: graphicsmagick: command not found
guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# GraphicsMagick

yeah, i'm talking about viewnior not gpicview :wink:

and heres a tip regarding missing libs: search the full library name:

Code: Select all

# usm -s libjasper.so.1
 ----------------------------- 
 Are you searching for a library file? 

libjasper.so.1, it seems a library.
Would you like to find the package for it? [y/n]

 libjasper.so.1  was found in   jasper-1.900.1-x86_64-5.txz

and while i'm at it, here's another fun fact:

Code: Select all

$ mtpaint -s
takes a screenshot and opens it in mtpaint..

edit: oddly enough i'm running mtpaint-3.31 (old module that i found lying around) without any libjasper :%)
oh ok, mtpaint-3.40 probly needs it for something..

^ Interesting indeed. And how does one assign that function to the PrtScr key?

yeah, System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts
first remove the keybind for "Take a Screenshot" ie select "Print" and press Escp
then add a custom shortcut and assign it to Print (PrtSc)

you realise, of course , that you can use Shift+PrtSc to take a shot of a selected area using the builtin screenshooter (precropped) :wink:
