    Question How can i make a screenshot of my login screen?

    I tried to just hit "print screen" when on the login but no luck...then i tried to make it with a command in tty1:
    Code:
    ping host -C 15
    and then type
    Code:
    gnome-screenshot
    to set a timer to make a screenshot of things i usually cant do with hitting print screen (like the dash for example)...but no luck. So how CAN i make a screenshot? could not find much on google...

    Hello,

    I have no idea, but if this is troubling you a lot, I thing that a photo from your mobile phone would do the trick. You can modify the photo afterwards using gimp.

    Regards!

    i had that idea too but my phone has a crappy camera so quality would be very low...i have seen screenshots on google of login screens of 11.10 but can't find anywhere how to make one myself...

    It was possible in 11.04 and there are instructions available . I find no instructions for 11.10 and would not proceed without instructions for the current version . I fear it would all end in tears .

    Re: How can i make a screenshot of my login screen?

    alright...guess i can't do it the direct way, i will do it the indirect way...so i will make a backup of my current install with remastersys and install that onto a Virtual Box to boot it up and make a screenshot of the login screen....

    or does anyone else know a way how i can make a screenshot of the login screen?
