Quick question. If you used something like scrot (I don't know much about taking screenshots ) out of X-windows. Would it take a screenshot of the console?...

    I used either gnome-panel-screenshot for Gnome or KSnapshot for KDE. They both are able to do screenshots of terminals. I don't know how scrot works.

    If you mean the framebuffer, you can use a program called fbgrab, I discovered it a while back and it's not perfect but it gets the job done, here's a snapshot I took.
