Screeny screen capture

01micko created a very nice screen and window capture application, named Screeny:

I have been stuck on the very simple but basic mtPaint capture capability for a long time, I even resisted some nicer-looking GUIs for it.

But, Screeny is very nice, particularly as it easily captures windows, something that I need frequently.

Screeny needs a small utility, 'xwd', and I have modified the xorg_base* templates in Woof to include 'xwd', so it will be in all future puppies.

I also added 'screeny' to the package-lists of most of the build flavours, including Precise Puppy.

PET uploaded (3KB):

Racy/Wary (and anyone else without 'xwd') will need this PET (11KB):

I am very glad that forum member BDX has been starting Arabic langpack (and translation of screeny, that is why I dare posting here)

Please have a look at
The beginning of Arabic translation

There is a message for you.
Thanks in advance

Re right-to-left in JWM
Oh no, that looks like a very bad "solution", inserting 19 blank characters.
Would you mind contacting Joe and get him to fix it?

Note, we are currently using JWM 574, which is not the latest. I can't quite recall, I think that I encountered a bug with a later version, and if my memory serves me correctly I did post a bug report. Then I stayed with version 574.

So, you would need to read the changelog, perhaps the right-to-left problem has already been fixed.

Re re right-to-left
No, it has not been thought to be a solution.
Yes, I will contact Joe.
