How to take screenshots in Raspberry Pi

How to take screenshots in Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi does not seem to have a default screenshot application like screenshot or snip. I will explain what worked for me. I am using scrot command line utility to take the screenshots.

To install scrot execute following command -
  • sudo apt-get install scrot

As you can see from screenshot above you can enter
  • scrot -s
and select the window you want to take screenshot of. If you want to take a complete screenshot with with some delay you can do -
  • sudo scrot -d5
You even have a -c option to show a countdown. You can see various options available with man command -
  • man scrot

PS : This whole post is written on my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and have used scrot command for above screenshots :)
