Running HyperSnap on Linux

Hyperionics does not provide any Linux software at this time, nor do we support our software under Linux. However, here is an article from one of our customers, who successfully installed and run HyperSnap under Linux.

The whole screen goes black whenever you start screen capture, whatever you try to capture is all black.

This is a problem noticed in August 2008. Apparently an Internet security product called ZoneAlarm ForceField is trying to protect the users privacy from malware software by making screen captures impossible. It is controlled via a toolbar in Internet Explorer, FireFox, and possibly other browsers. If your Internet browser is running, even if its window is minimized, you will get only black screen captures. It is possible to turn off this protection, at least temporarily to make the screen captures you need, through ForceField toolbar in Explorer or FireFox - or if you need to capture from something else, not the browser, you could simply close completely all browser windows, which deactivates ForceField. Another reason for this problem may be a buggy graphics card driver, so if the above does not solve your problem, please check the web sites of your computer and graphics card manufacturers to see if they have any updates for your graphics hardware and your version of Windows.

How to make multiple captures without exiting a game/other program to save or print them.

Please enable the "Quick Save" or "Quick Print" (or both if you want) options under the "Capture/Capture Settings" menu of HyperSnap. Now, every picture you capture will be auto-saved or printed. If you enable "Quick Save", which I recommend most, you can make it to auto-number the files saved like snap001.bmp, snap002.bmp etc., for each press of the capture hot key. Then, when done playing and capturing, return to HyperSnap window and review your captures by pressing Page Up and Page Down keys. Please read more about these options in HyperSnap help file.

HyperSnap connects periodically to the Internet...What info does it send?

HyperSnap does not send any information from the user's machine to the Internet. It only reads a text file from Hyperionics web site, by default once every 7 days, to tell you if there is a new version of this program. You can change the frequency or disable this check under "Help/Check for a New Version" menu.
