  66089   Tue Dec 2 01:10:39 2008 Question weiluolwsy711@gmail.comQuestionLinux How to attach screen shot in elog

I want to know if there were some way to insert a screen shot directly into the log book instead of going through the "save-attach" procedure. i.e. add some plug in button to do this under Linux?

Or, can I just make a plain log file "xxxx.log" and put it into the directory? Will that work?

Thanks

You cannot directly paste a screen shot into an elog entry. Use HoverSnap (Windows) or ksnapshot (linux) to produce directly an image file, then you need only two mouse clicks (browse and select file). There is also an Add-On for FireFox called "dragdropupload" which can be used for drag-and-drop a file into the attachment file selector. 

 I see. But what I want to do now is writing a script to make a elog entry, is that possible? I mean, I don't know if the log entry I generated could be recognized by elog.  e.g. the following text is generated by me, no through elog, is there a way to let them shown on elog?

 For what you need you can use the "elog" utility, as described in https://midas.psi.ch/elog/userguide.html at the bottom. Using the "-f" option you can add attachments there.

 Got it! This is exactly what I need, thanks a lot!

Hello everyone.
Here I found a problem recently with attaching screen-shot to the elog.
I am using "elog -f xxx/xxx.gif" to make elog entry. Recently I found my attached pictures were scaled to the half of the original size horizontally appearing in the log entry, the other half of the picture was filled with black. I need to click it once to magnify the picture to see it.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem? It bugs me a lot.

By the way, I saw some pictures were produced with the name "xxx.gif.png" in the logbook directory.
Thanks, and one of the modified picture is attached.

When you submit a picture, elogd calls the ImageMagick package to generate a thumbnail out of it, therefore you get the "xxx.gif.png" file (which represents the thumbnail). If you create your GIF images with the ROOT package, ImageMagick will give problems because ROOT does not use standard GIF encoding, therefor the black border on your pictures. You can turn off the thumbnail generation completely by specifying
Thumbnail size = 0

in the configuration file. This option was just introduced recently, so please update to SVN revision 2227 for this option to work.


Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation! It works!
