Kubuntu Breezy - Absolute beginners

Time for a break - create your own South Park character :-)

This post is not really kubuntu related, but I like the idea so much that I decided to write something about it:

If you like playing around a bit during your coffee break, you'll enjoy this for sure!
As you will see you can create your own SouthPark-ish character by choosing different attributes to your "alter ego".

For me, the result looks like this:



I think you would recognise me on the streets now ;-)

As you'll see (and now that's the point we're coming back to Kubuntu a bit) there's no way to save the picture you created (rightclick doesn't work because it's a flash). But there's an easy solution for this. Open your Screen Capture Program (Knsapshot) - you can do this with Menu --> Graphics --> Ksnapshot
or by hitting alt+spacebar and typing Ksnap.. (see two posts below: Katapult). Just take a snapshot of your screen, save it - and after you can cut the picture with the Gimp. (select the picture --> copy selection --> paste as new picture --> save).

    Me again...

    A great way to capture this would be to make sure you have Gimp Image Editor and Image Manipulation Programme loaded.
    Open Gimp Manipulation then select
    FILE | AQUIRE | SCREEN SHOT

    This will open the shot straight into Gimp and away you go to cut down and edit!! Voila.

  • You can also capture the whole screen using the keys
    [Ctrl] + [Print Screen]

    or to capture just the window
    [Alt] + [Print Screen]

    the images are now copied on the klipboard to be pasted into most graphical applications.

    ( the 'print screen' button is above the insert key on my keyboard)

  • Hi makda,

    thank you for your tip!
    Using a laptop the 'print screen' button here is on top, third button from the right (two buttons to the right of F12).

    :) thanks again,
