What is Lightscreen?
Lightscreen is a simple tool to automate the tedious process of saving and cataloging screenshots, it operates as a hidden background process that is invoked with one (or multiple) hotkeys and then saves a screenshot file to disk according to the user's preferences. Now, in the new version, you can upload all your screenshots automatically onto Imgur. A capture's thumbnail is a rather good feature of this utility.

Said about Lightscreen as an alternative
It's not really as powerful as ShareX, but it's literally an exact replica of Lightshot from Windows, which is good.
Excepted I didn't find an option to upload to SXCU domains, it works fine, and is very customisable, way more than the other apps listed here

I decided on this app because I needed a simple and straightforward tool to allow clients -and myself in old computers- to capture screenshots every-time there's a problem. This tool is fantastic, so light, so fast, and free software.
How the hell is it installed? I'm kinda new to Linux
Linux distributions usually use a 'package manager' to install applications. Think of it like the windows store, but everything is truly free.
Depending on your particular choice of Linux, the package manager will have a different name, so it's best to run a quick search to find out what yours is called, for example search for 'ubuntu package manager' if you are using Ubuntu Linux.
