How to take Screenshots?


How do I take screen snapshots? I'm using DSL 4.4.10.

I found a How To on using the "X Window Snapshot" tool (see http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/f/topic-3-28-20256-0.html).

It outputs to a *.xwd file format. When I try to use the convert command to convert this X Window dump to a PNG or JPG format file, I get a "command not found" response.

Any ideas? Thank you.

BTW, I also found that DSL does not have the scrot line command often used for taking Linux screenshots.

Use ksnapshot which comes with KDE. Look in your software manager and you will find it. It saves the picture in .png!!!

Thanks and solved

Thanks, @Gasdim. Your idea worked for me.

I also took snapshots with DSL's X Window Snapshot tool, then uploaded it to the website http://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-jpg, where they provide free translation of the *.XWD file output by the X Window Snapshot tool to a JPG file.

Your solution was better. Thanks.
