Keylogger for Linux

In our office computers of staff are monitored with keylogger, it take screen shot of computer screen every 1 minute, also records keystrokes.

We are planing to move to Linux. Is there any equivalent software on Linux that do the keylogging and record screen shot at specified interval ?

I did a search, but can't find any good software.

Any suggestions ?

Included in X11/Xorg is at least one tool for dumping screens (xwd) and logging key events (xev). Else there's TTYRpld, THC-vlogger, LKL, TTYSnoop.

My solution would be to hire better staff so you don't need to monitor them.

LKL seemed to slow down the user experience too much when I tried it (but that was about a year ago). This one seems better to me, but I've not used it. As far as screen shots go, that sounds like something a simple script run from cron could handle.

You can just write a script for the screenshots and use that keylogger poster earlier.
