FBShot discussion thread

FBShot is a /dev/fb0 to PNG file program I found and compiled for the iLiad. It needs some more work, a nicer wrapper, updated makefile...

But it works and really is only of use to people whom have the skills to use it in this condition.

You can discover more about it here: http://www.sfires.net/fbshot/

To use it one needs to be connected to their iLiad via a remote shell: openssh, dropbear etc...

The command line is: fbshot <name of png file to capture screen to>

Thanks for the info, Scotty. I thought it could just be used on the iLiad.
I imagine it could, just create a camera icon that controls it and make png files with timecode in the name in a directory named "ScreenShots" in the root of the internal USB memory. But this could be less useful.

Henk, all good ideas. I just don't need it to do any of those things as it does what I need via ssh.

The source is simple and I've posted it here in the Projects database... it would make a good entry level project for someone looking to get their feet wet with iLiad software development.
