Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Applications How do I get screenshots of an application in a Linux environment?
  • There is a tiny and useful utility called “Take Screendshot” / “Ksnapshot”, which performs the exact as ur requirement. Or u can use import –window command for the same purpose. Even u can press Print Screen key to do the same, but it works on gnome.

  • Hey Laura,
    There are several tools to allow you to grab a screenshot of your desktop and/or a specific window. I'd suggest an app called "shutter" or if you want just a simple command line tool I would suggest "scrot"

    Hope this helps,
