Hi, I want to take a screenshot of my desktop using FFMPEG, however I have no clue of how to set up a command like this and every time I search on google I only get how to extract a frame from a video... I ONLY want to take a single screenshot from my desktop using FFMPEG, so what is the command for that? Also, I am using ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

This is off the top of my head, but it may get you started.
ffmpeg -t 1 -s 1024x768 -f x11grab -i :0.0+0,0 -f mjpeg output.png
-i is input file and this tells it to use the desktop starting from top left
