3 responses to Capture Your LightDM Login Screen in Ubuntu 14.04

  1. Why write scripts when there is a simple solution for picture windows logon screen?

    sudo apt-get install xserver-xephyr

    lightdm – test-mode

    • Thanks for you tip. But you need to first switch to user lightdm in terminal if you’ve changed the LightDM appearances.

  2. You can try this:

    gnome-screenshot -d 10

    you don’t need to install any thing just enter the command and lock the screen, the screen will be shot within 10 seconds after the command is executed.
