Today Quick Tip: Take a screenshot of your Xorg Desktop in FreeBSD PDF

If you cannot take a screenshot for some reason in your KDE window manager using ksnapshot or you have other window manager and you dont want to install lots of libraries only for that task there's a utility in FreeBSD ports that just does that.

 cd /usr/ports/graphics/scrot
 make install clean
 rehash

to take screenshot use:

 scrot

It will save a .png file in the directory where you run that command, with the screenshot of your screen.
