3198 packages with screenshots (+68)
573 packages with screenshots (+4)
3130 packages with screenshots (+130)
569 packages with screenshots (+8)
3000 packages with screenshots
561 packages with screenshots
Algorithm is as follows:
if there is a linuxmint screenshot
then by golly, print it on the screen!
elif Is there a debian screenshot?
show "no screenshot available" message.
Yes, I know it's a job. I actually did hundreds of them. But the point is it's better to focus the energy on one place than working on parallel solutions. This way you get some five times the number of screenshots in an instant. It is because it's a big undertaking you need to think of strategies like the one I'm proposing here.
This idea basically is for mintinstall users in the first place. If you use synaptic your allready there. As an example I made the "fotowall" screenshot. Cute puppies and all. If you use synaptic you will find it by clicking "Get Screenshot". In mintinstall you will get the "No screenshot available" sign.
There are a lot of distros. If all opt for their own screenshot strategy then you will end up just doing a lot of the same work over and over again. I don't want to do screenshots that are done allready.
It's a job.
Currently the packages number 31268 and the screenshots at http://screenshots.debian.net/ number 3760.
A big gap to fill don't ya think.
