Hi,

I know that I can create screenshot from the command line in pdaxrom 1.1.0beta3 using xwd but unfortunately xwd writes the screenshot in a not so common format.

Is it possible to create the screenshot in png format with xwd?

Searching the web I only found solutions with some converting programs (convert, xwdtopnm, etc) which are not installed by defaultin pdaxrom.

Until now I converted the xwd file with GIMP - but I prefer to create the screenshot in a "normal" format without converting

Thanks

Bernd

Use Scrot. It depends on a few things, but I'm not entirely sure what they are. I believe the list is something like this:

libpng
imlib2
giblib
libungif

Anyway, enjoy.

It worked out of the box (I'm using weeXpc wich is a customized version of pdaXrom)

Did you try gsnapshot which is gtk2-based screen capture program.

I use meanie's screencap tool. It puts a *.png file on the SD card and has a 10 second delay built in.
You can find it on meanie's pdaxrom feed at tyrannozaurus
screencap_0.3_armv5tel.ipk
scrot_0.8_armv5tel.ipk
giblib_1.2.4_armv5tel.ipk
imlib2_1.2.2_armv5tel.ipk
libpng
libungif
for sound
esound_0.2.34_armv5tel.ipk
audiofile_0.2.6_armv5tel.ipk

screencap will allow you to easily take a screendump.
It uses scrot if installed, otherwise falls back to using xwd.
It also plays a sound file and mimics the behaviour of the screencap tool in Sharp ROM.

Hello Bernd,

weeXpc contains the XScreenshot tool which actually uses scrot. It lets you set the number of screenshots in a series and the delay between the screenshots (or, when taking only one screenshot, the delay before the first one).
Screenshots are saved on the SD card in Documents/screenshots.

Via Utilities / Panel you can also place the XScreenshot icon into the panel for quick access.

Ooops, yes. I forgot the "ipkg status" before installing the scrot ipkg again ..
