View Full Version : [ubuntu] Capture Iconified or Background Window Contents

December 6th, 2009, 01:01 AM
Hi all,

I've seen several solutions for screen or window capture in linux, but none that can capture a window while its in an iconified state or behind another window. I know this is possible in WinXP, but haven't had any luck figuring if this is even possible with ubuntu.

I'm wondering this too. I found programs to record an area of the screen, but as soon as a window moves over the one i want to record, it records the new window. i.e. it records an area of the screen 'as i see it'

Is there an app to record a background window?
