Running Fedora 15 (moving to 16 soon) -
I would like to take a screen shot every few seconds - something like:
$ while true; do import -w root png:$(date +%F_%R:%S).png; sleep 2; done
The problem with ImageMagick's
import is that it doesn't seem to capture correctly in GNOME-shell.
- Doesn't render my terminal's transparency (appears opaque)
- Doesn't always show the window that is actually on top (seems to prefer firefox from what I've seen)
- Doesn't render the actual visual shell from GNOME-shell - so instead of seeing this:
I would end up seeing whatever the screen looked like before I invoked the visual shell.
gnome-screenshot takes the screen shot perfectly every time, but also invokes this file name / location prompt:
There does not appear to be a way to bypass this, I've looked over the
gnome-screenshot help a few times, it doesn't seem to have a non-disruptive mode, nor does it appear to have a file name input the way
Is there any way to get non-disruptive screen shots with file names specified via CLI and still have it be accurate? Is there an option other than
gnome-screenshot that has this functionality? Is there an option of
import that makes it render GNOME-Shell properly?
