Does Donation Coder plan to release a Linux version of the applications like Screenshot Captor, since I have transitioned from windows to Ubuntu and am feeling it to be a great transition.

There is no application which is actually "based" on Linux...

For most apps there already is a great Linux alternative. The import command perfectly does everything you can expect from a screenshotting app...

Tuxman, I don't understand your reply. Could you elaborate?

dhayfule, congrats on the switch! Are you using Gnome or KDE (I presume Gnome since you said Ubuntu).

Mostly true. But I still wouldn't mind seeing a version of FARR come out for Linux ... smiley  Wink

Well then:

1) There is no application which is actually "based" on Linux...
Linux is a kernel. It could be hard to even imagine how an application should be based on it.

2) For most apps there already is a great Linux alternative.
Self-explaining.

3) The import command perfectly does everything you can expect from a screenshotting app...
Direct reply to the OP's request (Screenshot Captor). On Linux I take screenshots via import, it allows a wide variety of parameters and is usually a part of your distribution anyway.

@Tuxman, do you happen to know of an article that points out all the great Linux alternatives that replaces all the DC apps with instructions on how to use them if you're a Linux newb?

Not really, I don't even know about all DC apps ...  Grin

Does that help?

Sadly no. Sites like those are a dime a dozen. Just see osalt.com for example.

It's really stuff like the import command that are very understated.

Thanks though for not taking offense. I was worried I might have come off sarcastic.  tongue

Thanks Tuxman! I was thinking too much. One of the things I really love is being "ready to go" after installation. At most, there's 2-4 apps I install from other repositories and that's it.
