screenshots

Looking to streamline capture of static screenshots a bit. Options:

  • gnome-screenshot - use this already, it’s fine, whatever.
  • shutter - weirdness with my xmonad setup? Errors and I don’t feel like taking the time to find out why.
  • scrot - buncha nice command line options

I wind up forking Tyler’s grab, a nice wrapper for scrot, which is pretty much what I was going to write anyway.

This is pretty good at defining a region for a static screenshot.
