Hello veggie

Nice to see you back

I was worried we'd never hear from you again

yes we tried to address the issues you so eloquently posted at the beginning of this thread, so sorry about the screenshot location maybe we can fix that in a future respin for you (or maybe not) :)

anything else ??

Hi veggie, I'm happy you like Peppermint Six.  I'm sorry the default save location for the scrot doesn't meet your approval.  In our opinion the Desktop was the most logical location because the user is more than likely taking the scrot for work in progress, or for ease of access for editing.  The Desktop in our opinion, is by definition the best location for this.  The image can easily be moved or copied to its final destination, when it is no longer needed.  We will take your observation into consideration.  If a sufficient number of our users also feel the same way as you.  The default location for future releases will be discussed by the development team .  I hope you continue to enjoy this release  ;).

NOPE NOT MOVING IT .. EVER!!!!! .. GRRRRR!!!!! >:(

IT MAKES MOST SENSE TO SAVE THEM TO THE DESKTOP FOR THE REASONS ANDY MENTIONED .. ARGHHH!!!!!  >:(

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE CURRENT SAVE LOCATION .. CHANGE IT .. IT'S QUITE EASY AND WE'LL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST IF WANT .. GRRRRR, SPIT, GRRRRR, SEETHE!! !!!  >:(

ARGHHHH!!!!! ..  ANGRY, ANGRY .. SHOUT, SHOUT .. GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!  >:(

Welcome back veggie .. as you can see by Peppermint 6 we're more than happy to take onboard suggestions .. doesn't change my opinion that there are right and wrong ways to make those suggestions though ;)

I have noticed a small glitch where screen and window shots taken via the new keyboard shortcuts are being saved to both the desktop *and* the home folder .. this will be fixed in a respin at some point, but cannot be fixed via update without removing any custom keyboard assignment the user may have made .. and we won't do that unless it's something like a critical security issue that's being addressed.

What a GREAT domain name!!!

Anyhoo, someone is sitting on it - probably, Yahoo...   :-\

EDIT

Yup:  http://whois.domaintools.com/anyhoo.com

Better be careful using that word, or someone (ahem) may report you.   8)

Coincidentally...

Never-Made-A-Damn-Dime.com IS available:  http://whois.domaintools.com/never-made-a-damn-dime.com

Before you start ripping Team Peppermint over silly shiz, I would remind you, this is a labor of love.

Personally, I put my screenies inside a separate folder, inside /Pictures (and sync them to the cloud) but /Desktop is probably best for most users IMO.

Just saying...

Look at the bright side Mark

There is no bright side now ,, only a dull and sticky side.

I try to be nice but only after coffee.  Before that, I'm like a bear that sat on a hornet's nest  ;D.

Well I am not using the distro. To set it up like I wanted it would take lots of time and I have my distro all set up. See you Bye

And the award for the silliest reason for installing and abandoning a distro goes to....

Different users have different requirements, hence the reason for so many of them. Pick the one you like. Whatevs. But because the screenshot doesn't save where you want? I'm surprised you can stay with any distro more then about five minutes :P
