How to install pyscreenshot on Linux – Python
Hello, Coders! In this Python tutorial, we will learn how to install pyscreenshot module on a Linux System.
Pyscreenshot Module in Python
Pyscreenshot is a module of python which is used to take screenshots without installing any third-party libraries.
It is very useful for Linux distros, though it is cross-platform. It copies the contents of the screen to a PIL or Pillow(Imaging Library) image memory using various back-ends. It’s also described as the replacement for the ImageGrab Module.
It supports python versions like 2.7,3.4 and 3.5 etc.
Installing pyscreenshot on a Linux System
Step1:Open the terminal emulator by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T.
Step2: Install pip, which is a package installer for python. (Like apt-get you can install by using pacman, rpm, dnf, dpkg, etc package manager as well for different distros)
sudo apt-get install python-pip
Step3: We need to install the PIL or Pillow imaging library for python before installing pyscreenshot.
sudo apt-get install python-pil
Step4: Now install the pyscreenshot module by using the pip package manager.
sudo pip install pyscreenshot
Step5: Let’s verify the installation of pyscreenshot by doing a simple program.
import pyscreenshot image = pyscreenshot.grab(bbox=(10, 10, 500, 500)) image.show() //show() function works as print. It displayed the captured screenshot. image.save("CodeSpeedy.png")
