Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may already know, HotShots is a lightweight screenshot tool with editing options. It is a lighter tool similar to Shutter. The latest version available is HotShots 1.2.1, which has been recently released, but it is not available via any PPA yet, so installing it is not easy at all, because we have to build it from sources.
