There are many ways to take screenshots. In distros like Ubuntu, Mint or Fedora, the tool is either gnome-screenshot or mate-screenshot. You can also use more complicated tools like shutter or GIMP. They are good at what they do.
I am trying to develop a rails application in which it takes the screen shot of thedesktop every minute.
I searched internet I couldn’t find any gem file related to this task.I am using ubuntu. So when I searched for taking screen shots I got a command scrot. Which when executed in command line it would take the screen shots.But problem is my ruby file doesn't recognise the scrot command.
I'm trying to use scrot to capture a specific monitor to no avail. The command i use is: $ scrot -c -d 5 -q 100 -s And if i click on my desktop it captures both my monitors (which in turn is awesome, need i capture both), and I'm assuming it's due to having my Nvidia Xserver config set up for 'Twinview'.
When I run scrot from a Terminal or from a run dialog box (Alt+F2), I don't have any problems, but when I run it from the menu, I get a pop-up box like this:Uploaded with ImageShack.usAny ideas as to why this is occurring?mikhou
