Update 2011-08-06: BackupPC has been removed from the repo. A newer release is available in maverick-backports.

Minor updates to the repo for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat:

  • BackupPC 3.2.0 has been added. This is the same package from Debian Sid, and works on Lucid as well. I don’t recommend a non-LTS release for your backup solution, but if your hardware requires a newer kernel, you might need this. I’ve tested it myself.
  • Clementine 0.5.3 has been removed. You can now find a newer release in maverick-backports.

It’s a handy feature of Gnome that pressing “PrntScrn” or “Alt+PrntScrn” will take a screen capture of the desktop or current window, respectively. However, in typical Gnome fashion, you can’t do anything more advanced. You can’t capture a region, or a window area. You can’t delay the capture. You can’t save the captures with iterating, numbered filenames. However, the equivalent KDE tool can do all of those things, and you can make Gnome use it.
