Of course there’s browsercam.com (pay) and iCapture (free but groaning under the load!) … but I want a bit more control and a bit more speed. The latest effort appears to be http://browsershots.org (which is in Beta) which will be a distributed screen-cap program, as far as I can see. Looks great! Oh and there’s lixlpixel too … http://fundisom.com/g5/ (which only has a few browsers).
Then there are various kde based options:
Then command line options:
* import (part of ImageMagick)- “import -window root screenshot.png”
* xv -grabdelay 2 myimage.jpg
* fbgrab filename.png
* xwd (X Window Dump) and xwud or gimp to convert the resulting file to a readable format!
Using imagemagick […] import -window root screenshot.png
Using xv […] xv -grabdelay 2 myimage.jpg
ksnapshot lets you with ease grab a screenshot of your desktop or a single window.
scrot is a small (66 kB) screen shot grabber
xwd can dump screenshots to .xwd files the only programs I found capable of opening it were Gimp and xwud
* GIMP “File: Acquire: Screen Shot” tool
* MagiCapture (requires ImageMagick)
* Captura (proprietary)
* Screen-Shooter (GNOME; requires ImageMagick)
* “xwd | display -” or “sleep 10; xwd -root > dump”
* KSnapshot (KDE)
* fbshot (for framebuffer)
* fbgrab (for framebuffer)
* import (in ImageMagick)
* Electric Eyes (GNOME; aka “ee”)
* EasyCopy (proprietary)
* “cat /dev/vcs4 > screenshot” for virtual consoles (root user)
* snapscreenshot for virtual consoles (root user— unmaintained)
* vcsadump (for virtual consoles)
* xv (proprietary)
* Wink (proprietary, x86-only)
