when you run it a blank window appears with a few buttons for options to take the screenshot.  once the button is prssed to take the screenshot, the screenshot appears in the window and you are given options for where to save the shot and what to name it.

it's basic and functional.  great for openbox.

It's a nice tool, even not upgraded the last 9 years.
Have you seen a deb package somewhere in the net?
If not I can do that.

Quicker to just add following to Openbox Root Menu: 
<menu id="graphicsScreenshots" label="Scrot" icon="/usr/share/icons/scshoot.png">
<item label="Now" icon="/usr/share/icons/scrot0.png">
<action name="Execute">
<command>
scrot '/home/me/Pictures/scrots/%Y-%m-%d--%s_$wx$h_scrot.png'
</command>
</action>
</item>
<item label="In 5 Seconds..." icon="/usr/share/icons/scrot5.png">
<action name="Execute">
<command>
scrot -d 5 '/home/me/Pictures/scrots//%Y-%m-%d--%s_$wx$h_scrot.png'
</command>
</action>
</item>
<item label="In 10 Seconds..." icon="/usr/share/icons/scrot10.png">
<action name="Execute">
<command>
scrot -d 10 '/home/me/Pictures/scrots/%Y-%m-%d--%s_$wx$h_scrot.png'
</command>
</action>
</item>
<item label="Selected Area... (click &amp; drag mouse)" icon="/usr/share/icons/scrot.png">
<action name="Execute">
<command>
scrot -s '/home/me/Pictures/scrots/%Y-%m-%d--%s_$wx$h_scrot.png'
</command>
</action>
</item>
</menu>




As you see, this can be set-up to automatically save the image where-ever you like (here, ~/Pictures/scrots), named with date and time.
