Re: screen snapshot utility needed on an r-pi 3b running jessie

I usually have xwd (from x11-apps) installed and recently cooked up this script:

datestr=`date +"%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M"`
echo "Saved as " $outname
xwd -display ':0.0' -root -out $outname

It can do a screen dump even over an ssh connection.  They're saved as
.xwd files of course but convert in ImageMagick can convert them to
.png, .jpg, whatever.  You could make the convert step part of the
script, but  you might prefer to do that later if speed of capturing
is important.

I'm building an RPI tablet with the official touchscreen and needed a
way to do remote screen captures.  Date and time is part of the output
