Console / Xterm

Rather that making a graphical snapshot of the console/command line or X-window terminal, it's usually better to copy the actual text content (select the region with a mouse).

Console

To you use the mouse on the Console screen, you need to install gpm (run apt-get install gpm).

  • Select the region to copy by pressing the mouse's left-button, then drag.
  • Open your favorite text editor, then paste the selected text using the right button.

advanced tip: if you don't want to use a text editor, you can run cat > /tmp/outfile.txt, then paste the content using right-button, then press Ctrl-D (once).

Other Tools

Debian provides some other (advanced) tools to make screenshot, including gimp .
