After we have created our first SD card, booted it and run the setup procudure, we had the need to install the necessary software to make screenshots on the Raspberry Pi itself and to transfer them on a PC for documenting correctly our blog articles here!

The requirement

A Linux tool on our LXDE desktop environment to make screenshots and why not scrot!


Installing scrot

We can use either the terminal console on the Raspberry Pi or the Windows putty.

We should first run an update on our Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt-get update


The scrot application can be installed with:

sudo apt-get install scrot

and we should answer Y for yes to:

Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y


The program scrot is now install, and we can execute it from putty or from an LXTerminal on the Raspberry Pi:

scrot for immediate snapshot or with scrot -d 5 for instance after a 5 seconds delay usefull for rearranging or closing some wimdows.

The png file is available in the form 2013-...._1360x768_scrot.png which could be transfered to a Windows PC with WinScp.
