General Announcement
« on: March 25, 2017, 04:56:26 PM »
Hi all ! This is the area were the information on wattOS R11 will live.

We will be changing things up with development this time around as I would like a more transparent process, and to actually hit a release date. :) - Those of you who have been around know that has been sometimes a moving target. In any case, look for updates here next week on how that works. I have plans to put up a Kanban board that members can view and look at the development progress, programs, dates, and other information relative to wattOS.

Thanks for the patience, and support as always. Its a bit of a thankless job for folks here in the forums sometimes, but its always appreciated.

I can't wait! Still using it on both systems and loving it!
Say Automobile ten times and it loses its meaning.
Say Coffee ten times and it continues to make me drool.

I have been around from the beginning I have been absent from the board for a long while as work has been crazy.  I had to reregister but I remamber the days prior to the 64bit version etc.  Working with R10 right now and looking forward to R11.

Hello . Can you put scrot simple in WattOs 11 or just dont put it  ?  I would like to have scrot set like automatically ......we hit the print screen and the photo goes to the image  folder. In wattOs 10 when I hit the printscreen on the keyboard it send a pop up saying if I want to save it and so on. That is useles to me because I need to take several screenshots in seconds.
So If the scrot is set automatically to put the screenshot into the image folder that would be perfect. 

This is the only reason why I am not using WattOS 10. You could just take the scrot off in WattOs 11 and then I could install it. As it is now its worthless to me cause everytime I tried to screenshot it comes with that pop up thing saying if I want to save it where I want to save the screenshot etc .. thats a waste of time. I need to take several screenshots in seconds. Do you understand what I mean ?

Thank You

@veggie
If you want to use R10 but need that default changed, you might look at this :

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/42746/how-can-i-take-a-screenshot-in-lxde-using-scrot-and-the-print-screen-button-on-m   

It looks to me as if scrot config is in the file noted, so any change to add the "file location prompt" could be there too.   

If you are using microwatt, then you should got to the i3 FAQ.
