Lookit-Screenshot Application (PPA Installation instructions included)
Lookit is a screen capture tool that can be used to capture an area or the entire screen. After capturing, you can save it on your desktop or upload to a FTP, SSH server or Imgur.
Install lookit on ubuntu
open the terminal and run the following commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lookit/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lookit
“Take Screen-shot” is already existed. why another?
Already part of compiz
Lookit can automatically post your screenshot to online image services like imgur, so you can share it quickly.
It is quite handy when you wanna show your screen to some people (e.g. help desk to better describe your issue)

This isn’t the first time I’ve ran into a bunk ppa install posted on this site. Do you actually test to see if the commands in your post(s) work?
