Taking Screenshot in Raspbian

So this will be a very small post about how you can take a screenshot through command line interface in Raspbian operating system.

What Do we Need?

1. Raspberry Pi or any other single board computer that supports Raspbian.
2. Mouse, keyboard and Monitor if you want to use the Raspberry Pi alone.
3. Internet Connection.
4. Raspbian OS.
5. Power supply for the Pi.


1. Like always we will start off with making sure the Raspbian is fully updated. To do so just run the commands.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

2. Next we are going to install a small software called Scrot. To do so we have to type.

sudo apt-get install scrot

3. Now to take a screenshot all we have to type is


 4. You can also use a small timer that will allow you to take the screenshot after certain amount of time. To do so you have to type

scrot -d x
[where x will be a numerical value which is in second]

That's pretty much it! Hope this was helpful.
