writing a script to take a screenshot


Hi, is it possible to write a bash script that will take a snap shot of each window thats open and saves them in different files within a directory?

Hi,

yes you can do that with xwd and its -id option... now the problem is to retrieve the identifer of each window... But if you know the basic of X-Window programming that will not be a problem

Assuming that this is a one time deal, you can probably just use ksnapshot, and manually save the screenshots under the appropriate name/directory. -- J.W.
