Shutter - Invisible (and simple) action

Asked by Bruno da Cruz Bueno on 2012-10-18

Is there anyway to shutter works invisible?
Let me explain: I need this program to save automatically files when I hit the Print key. If I hit multiple times, a blank window appears over the window where I'm printing. In a sucession of aprox. 5 or 6 hits in 2 or 3 seconds, the results came with this blank windows overlayed.
I want to know if have any way of do it. To Shutter works invisible, without any extra plugins? (such image editing, opening in a tab, sending it online).
Just a simple use of it: Print and save without delay,open or ask anything.

Thanks for this great tool!

Please check the "Behaviour" setting in Shutter's preferences dialogue. You need to disable the "present main window after taking a screenshot" setting. Anyway, you might want to use lighter tool (e.g. scrot).

There is also the --no_session parameter. This is usefull when launching Shutter without using the GUI.

Can you help with this problem?
