hello dear Community,


can i capture a screenshot with gparted!?



the devs they talk about this option:

https://gparted.org/screenshots.php


Following are several screen captures of various aspects of the GParted application.
At the bottom of the page is a screen shot of the GParted Live boot menu.
GParted main window displaying disk device partitions.

It seems very unlikely that a tool designed for disk partition management could also be used for taking screenshots.

I think you may have misunderstood. My interpretation of that webpage would be something like "here are some screenshots of our partitioning tool in action. [Unstated: these images were 'grabbed' using some other unspecified utility while gparted was in use.]"

scrot is a commonly mentioned tool for grabbing screenshots from the display of an RPi running the Raspbian Stretch Operating System.

Not with gparted, but you can capture a screenshot of gparted with scrot. The utility scrot is installed by default in Raspbian. It's lean and simple. It's not listed in the menus but available in the terminal.

1. open the terminal

2. check out the manual briefly "man scrot", noting the options --delay and either --focused or --select, plus the "EXAMPLE" section

3. run scrot with the desired options, leave enough time to find and raise the gparted window

4. open the saved file in an editor or viewer
