directfb screenshot


I have posted this message in 'Newbie' but I think it should be here:

I am using directfb (C++) and need to get a screenshot of what is being displayed on the framebuffer device?

How can I do this? Is there a function I can call to do this?

I read somewher that if you put an image on the frame buffer can you get a copy by dumping /dev/fbX? - how do I do this?

Thanks

Not sure about a direct screenshot. One ugly method would be to run your program in a virtual machine, and take a screenshot of the vm.

Then I found a program called fbgrab. That might do it.
