Making screenshot of Gameshell

community-blog

#1

Hello there !

As I already said here I’m currently writing the first article of the community blog.

So I wouldlike to know if there is a way to make some screenshots in the OS to illustrate my tutorials.

Anyone knows ?

Thanks :grinning:

You could try X11 forwarding to your PC and screen capture from there.

An alternative is to take the screenshot through SSH with xwd -out screenshot.xwd -root -display :0.0 then get it from the GS through FTP and open it with GIMP for converting to JPEG.

Thanks but… Where can I find the file ? :slight_smile:

EDIT: Ok… I found it, in /home/cpi/

You can make screenshots via SSH, we already discussed that here: Skin Development!
