How to capture your Virtual Terminal to a png file
The fbgrab application is used to screen capture the Linux frame-buffer console. Install this utility with the sudo apt-get install fbgrab command and then you may use this command to take a screen-shot of the frame-buffer console.
Download the source code and then unpack it.
localhost% tar -xvf fbgrab-1.3.tar.gz
Then prepare to compile the source code to a binary.
localhost% cd fbgrab-1.3
Now, compile the source code.
localhost% make cc -g -Wall fbgrab.c -lpng -lz -o fbgrab gzip --best --to-stdout fbgrab.1.man > fbgrab.1.gz
And install it the binary and man page to the proper locations on the filesystem.
localhost% su Password: [root@localhost fbgrab-1.3]# make install install -D -m 0755 fbgrab /usr/local/bin/fbgrab install -D -m 0644 fbgrab.1.gz /usr/local/share/man/man1/fbgrab.1.gz
sudo fbgrab vty.png
