Taking a screenshot of your KDM screen
 
How would one do this?

yogeshm02 04-26-2005 10:28 AM

I think ksnapshot will do the job.

JaySuSE 04-26-2005 10:49 AM

That is what I use but how would I set it? Would I set a delay and would it still be active when I logout? Sorry, I should have asked what is the proper away to approach taking a screen shot of your KDM, thanks.

I think ksnapshot is well documented.

Sorry, but what were you trying to say.

screens shot of kdm
 
Would you believe?...............nahhhh.
Yes honest, I hit the key on my keyboard called "Print Scrn"while the kdm screen was showing and sure enough there was a screen shot file in my home directory. This was in Fedora Core 3.

Wish that worked for SuSE! I tried but to no avail. Still stumped, so far I have just picked up that it can be done with VMware (1 way). Still searching.

right click on the KMenu button and then Menu Editor.

then under Utils-->Desktop->>ksnapshot

simply create a shortcut key (i use Prt Sc but its ups to you)

JaySuSE 04-27-2005 02:01 PM

I tried that but it only seems to work when I am in KDE once I go to the KDM it does not work, I will try again when I get out of the office, thanks!

I think knsnapshot requires KDE to run, but at the kdm loginscreen this is not the case. I found some interesting links, but I was not successful, yet:

My problems lies in the permission to access the X server. Maybe one has to disarm some security locks.

I may E-mail some people that have designed some of their own on kde-look it seems they use VMware to take screenshots, not 100% sure.
