Screen Cloud | How To Capture Screenshots and Upload Them To The Cloud

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to install Screen Cloud on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. As you may know, Screen cloud is a cloud storage for uploading screenshots, easy and fast. Just press the keyboard shortcut and your printscreen will be saved and automatically uploaded on the cloud and the download link is copied in the clipboard.

You can configure screen cloud to save the photos on your computer, on a personal ftp or on it’s own site of file sharing.

Let’s start the good work.

First of all, go to and create an account, which stores your upload records.

Secondly, install the software:

On Ubuntu and Linux Mint, for 32 bit systems:

$ wget -c
$ sudo dpkg -i screencloud_1.1.0_i386.deb

On Ubuntu and Linux Mint, for 64 bit systems:

$ wget -c
$ sudo dpkg -i screencloud_1.1.0_amd64.deb

On Fedora, for 32 bit systems:

$ wget -c
$ sudo rpm -i screencloud_1.1.0_i686.rpm

On Fedora, for 64 bit systems:

$ wget -c
$ sudo rpm -i

Now, let’s start using Screen Clond. After you install the software, you will have to enter your account details, then it will appear in the systemtray.

Keyboard shortcuts for taking screenshots:

  • Shift + Alt + 1 : To capture the whole screen;
  • Shift + Alt + 2 : To select an area to capture;
