How to add the screencapture utility to the system bar?

Can't find a way and use the too often - it's time consuming to go each time trough the menu.

By system bar do you mean wbar?

I don't find it very time confusing to go System Tools > Screenshot.

There are other options, such as:
- screenshot.sh can be run from terminal or window manager run box
- download and install scrot, which will give you command line options,
  including countdown delay
- best option might be to install grabber, which has a desktop icon that loads
  nicely in wbar, allows taking shot of entire screen or selected area

The directory  /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/ondemand  contains scripts for loading extensions On-Demand. Each script that has an icon (PNG image with .img file name extension) will be added to WBar when launching the desktop (startx).
This feature can be used to add custom icons to WBar.

Yes, same folder.
I think 48x48 pixels is the default size for WBar icons.

@aug9: windowshot.tcz has a wbar icon if interested, take full screenshot or individual window screengrab.
