I have a stock C3000, and I know that I can create a screen capture by typing Shift-Fn-C. What I don't know and probably should, is how to get a screen capture in portrait mode, when the keyboard is by definition inaccessible. I've tried opening it up just a little, but it switches to landscape mode before I can open it wide enough to get my fingers to the keys.

I searched, and found scrot, but that seems to require X11 to be installed.

I feel pretty stupid about this, because there just has to be a simple way, surely?

Enlightenment would be much appreciated. If said enlightenment included a way to trigger a full-screen capture from a program (stock ROM, please remember), that would be icing on the cake.

(I'm asking this because I want to create screen shots of my program while it's running. I do realize that I can save the program's part of the screen area from within the program, but I'd like to see the title bar and task bar in the screen shot too.)

Cheers

John

open a terminal and issue the command
sleep 5 ; /home/sharp/bin/scshot shot
and you have 5 seconds to switch back to where you want to take your screenshot. Adjust to taste.

For a second there I thought someone stole my handle.

Brilliant - thanks, jfv! And over an ssh connection, the plain command works like a charm.

The handle isn't a steal - just a close imitation. Please consider it the sincerest form of flattery smile.gif
