Re: Screen Capture Program

Thank you for the help. Scrot works perfectly and so simple to operate. Just have to memorize the line commands now as I have been so used to clicking buttons.

Screen Capture Program

Does anybody know of a screen capture program that I can us on my Raspberry Pi.

I normally use Shutter to take screen shots on my Ubuntu operated Toshiba laptop. However, I would like to use my Pi to take screen shots as part of my work writing user guides.

Re: Listing software for install using Wheezy

Hello

I am a novice at Linux so I do not know what you mean.

All I want is the sudo command to list the available programs for install into a Wheezy distro.

Listing software for install using Wheezy

How do you list the software programs available for install in Wheezy. I am using 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian.

I want to install Dropbox, but sudo apt-get install tells that it is unable to locate the package.

Re: LibreOffice or OpenOffice Installation

Hello

I am using the Raspbian wheezy, but will be trying the other distros once I can get hold of a monitor. Using the TV is not popular at home.
