ImageMagick comes with the import utility to take screenshots. It has tons of options, but by default it lets you draw a rectangle on the screen and saves just that portion. If you want an entire window you can use -window ID; the identifier "root" captures the entire screen

The euphoniously named scrot takes screenshots from the command line... It has a couple of simple options, including a time delay and image quality. If you are wanting to take a shot in the console, and you are running a framebuffer, then you can use fbgrab.

This is a broad ranging question and can probably only be answered with the same sorts of brushstrokes. Ultimately, it comes down to what you, the user, wish to protect. Fundamentally, you should not post anything that would allow someone else to find it easier to compromise your system, or any of the other connected tools or accounts you use. For this ...

Edit ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml with your favorite text editor and then, within the existing <keyboard> element, add the following lines: <keybind key="Print"> <action name="Execute"> <command>scrot</command> </action> </keybind> Use the openbox --reconfigure command to use the new settings. ...

We can "turn on" the X tty manually from command line, without ctrl-alt-F(x). If X is on tty 7, and you login a text terminal chvt 7 ; DISPLAY=0.0 xwd -root > screendump.xwd ; chvt 1 However, xhost + localhost must be issue within the xsession, else xwd cannot connect to x server. This allow you to do it from ssh session. PS: In theory, with MTD, it ...

The most commonly used Linux application for taking screen-shots is called scrot You can install it with for Debian: sudo apt-get install scrot Or for Arch: sudo pacman -S scrot A screenshot is taken by typing: scrot output-file.png If you want to bind scrot to the print screen key then that will need to be controlled by your window manager.

What about a VNC based solution? Start a VNC session (via Xvnc or the builtin gnome/kde VNC tools). Then use vnc2flv, or the older vncrec or vnc2swf.

You could try xvidcap.

It's probably the fault of the game, not the fault of the screenshot utility. X11 sends applications a VisibilityNotify event to tell them that their window is fully visible, partially obscured or totally obscured. When the window is totally obscured, most applications don't bother updating their display, which saves resources. In other words, if nobody is ...

Nope, it's impossible. Manually modify the source code would work for you, but you could submit a bug report for it. (e.g make this configurable through xfce4-settings)

I have been using Shutter under Xmonad without any desktop environment and it has been working well. Shutter is a GUI app with a decent amount of features. Most of the time I would type "shutter -s" in a launcher/terminal and the program will let me choose the area of the screen that I want to capture. Then I hit Enter and the file will be saved to my home ...

Shift+PrtScrn will do the job. A dialog appears on screen allowing you to select any part of it.

Gnome should have screenshot abilities built already in. However, the default trigger is the Print key, which your keyboard may lack. You can remap this shortcut with gnome-keybinding-properties.

There are tons. I personally use import, from ImageMagick. It has the ability to capture the whole screen, a given window, or to let you select an area of the screen and just capture that Whole screen $ import -window root /path/to/output.png Individual window First you need to find out the X window ID: $ xdpyinfo | grep focus focus: window 0x3000006, ...

I found a great answer to this question here, it is worth repeating. This can be achieved with ImageMagick. Install by running the command sudo apt-get install imagemagick To grab all desktop just type import -window root screen.png Or you can do it with a delay of 5 seconds sleep 5; import -window root screen.png

There is TiLP. I've used it with my TI-84+ SE: it allows you to manage applications, programmes and variables, and IIRC it also has a "view screen" feature — either it has a screenshot function, or you can just use import or something else to grab a screenshot of TiLP showing the screen.

If you are looking for minimalistic solutions, your Xorg server might already comes with a tool called xwd. If not, and you'd install it separately, it might be the lightest possibility - the binary is just 27 KB in size. Watch out, because it outputs data on stdout! But the problem with xwd is that it dumps the screenshot in an XWD X Window Dump image data ...

To elaborate a bit on previous answers and comments, the ability to capture a screenshot of a non active window (as in fully or partially hidden) seems to depend on the window manager. Using the following (already given) command : import -window <windowid> image.png or xwd -id <windowid> | convert - image.png (the - of convert is for using ...

What do you mean by "non active"? "Not having the focus" or "hidden by some other window"? In the first case, gimp will do it without any problems (File -> Create -> Screenshot). In the second case, it's more difficult (if it's possible at all).

Just complement the other answers that show you what types of things to anonymize in logs I thought I'd provide a list of tools that can be used to help facilitate anonymizing the logs. TCPDUMP/pcap The list is primarily tools for dealing with tcpdump/pcap logs. NOTE: The full list of tools and libraries is here. AnonTool Netflow (v5 and v9) traces in ...

Adding to the other two (great) answers, it's also good to realize that the process of factor separation, so important for good testing/troubleshooting, is somehow related to the act of removing the sensitive info. In other words, whenever possible, always try to replicate your problem in a separate environment. Apart from the advantage of ruling out ...

The basic rule should be to expose only necessary information. So here the basic security rules apply: Only as much access/information as needed Anything else should be forbidden/not readable As you can see from many questions asked here - comments will ask for further information, if needed. But it is up to you to obfiscate personal information about ...

I'm not sure about Solaris: xrestop might be helpful.

Maybe Shutter, it has a few GNOME dependencies however (some are optional). Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window. Shutter is ...

For making screens from console there is also scrot. As it is not a tool from imagemagick package I think that there is a chance that colors will be ok. There is one problem - scrot can only take sceenshot of full screen, so we will take screenshot of full screen and then cut out area of window that we need. Of course for cut it out we will not use ...

CutyCapt is working as designed. The size of the X screen is irrelevant (unless the site's stylesheet depends on it, which is a terrible but common idea). Stack Overflow renders for a fixed width, regardless of the browser window width, so you get an image of that width.

You can use ffmpeg. ffmpeg -f x11grab -qscale 0 -s wxga -r 25 -i :0.0 recording.mpg
