Class: How to: scrot (screen capture)
Difficulty: Straightforward / terminal command
Time: 10 second delay following instructions - user dependent
Desirability: Possibly the easiest way to take a delayed screen capture

If you have installed the newest re-spin of Peppermint than you may have noticed that the screen shot app no longer allows you to set a delay time for it. Well here is a simple script to do just that, I will be using a 10 second delay as my example but you can replace it with how ever long you may need.

First open up a terminal with the Ctl+Alt+T key combo and then type in the following and press enter.

Code:
scrot -d 10


The clock starts ticking as soon as you press enter so use a higher setting until you get used to how it works. The screenshot will be stored in your home folder and you can upload it to pixlr or what ever you use as a image editor if you would like to edit it.
