Create screen shot from command line in Linux

Scrot is a screen capture utility for Linux that can be run from the command line. The program uses imlib2 library to create and save the images.

To create a screen capture with a unique name of current date and time stamp, and move the file immediately to a specific folder, the following command could be used as guidance;

$ scrot 'scrot-%Y%m%d-%H%M%S.png' -e 'mv $f ~/scrots/'

In the above example, characters preceded by a % are interpreted by strftime.
