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

    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,
