I would like to take a screenshot of the KDE Plasma 5 splash screen as I am creating a new splash theme. But pressing PrtSc during the splash doesn't launch spectacle (my screenshooter) until after the splash screen is gone and the screenshot it takes is of the desktop as it appears after the splash screen.

  • The only way I can think of is to run a virtual machine and take a screenshot of its splash screen, but not sure if that really suits your purpose. – n8te Dec 22 '16 at 0:27

Use scrot:

DISPLAY=:0 scrot screenshot.png
