Well, it was worth a try. I'm currently doing it via a klutzy SQL trigger, but a GUI would have been nice.

Code:
rgb565torgb < /dev/fb0 > convert -depth 8 -size 800x1280 -rotate 90 "$(date %Y%M%d-%H%m).png"
You need imagemagick on the kobo for that of course.
I'm afraid this is beyond my tech skills, my Linux knowledge is zero, but if someone ever writes a step-by-step or packages it into something simple and foolproof I'd be interested.
