Gone to Linux, but realized there's no linux flavor of Gyazo? Don't worry, Shutter is here.

To install, type up this code:

Code:

Using Shutter.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To start shutter, do either -
Go to Applications > Accessories > Shutter
Press ALT + F2, and type Shutter when the promp comes up.

To use shutter, you can do several things -
Press 'Selection', and that lets you do it as you would in Gyazo. Press enter when you finish, and then click Export in the top right of the program.

Press 'Desktop', and that will take a picture of your desktop. You must close other windows besides Shutter. Click export in the top right to upload it.

Press 'Window', and move your mouse over to the window you want screenshotted, and click. Upload by pressing Export in the top right.
Alternatively, choose the drop down arrow next to Windows, and choose the window you want screenshotted. It doesn't have to be open.
