LKBEN11481: Making screenshots on kde plasma


You just don't know which program to use for making screenshots on kde


You want to dokument something and need a screenshot from a part of the window


When you have a keyboard with the print button on it, you can just press this button. If you don't, you need to start "spectacle". Spectacle can be used to make screenshots from the active window, the complete screen, all screens or just a rectangle on the screen. You can also set a timer e.g. 2 seconds. The Screenshot will be taken after the timer expires.

Have fun.
