Locally from the device
You can grab screen shots manually by using the following command on your Neo:
# cat /dev/fb0 >myscreenshot_001.raw
You can then convert this on your pc with fb2png by using the following command:
# fb2png myscreenshot_001.raw myscreenshot_001.png 9 480 640 16
You can also push a screen capture back onto the display:
# cat myscreenshot_001.raw >/dev/fb0
If you want to show a sequence of screens in an animation you can use convert. Once you have all your screen shots as .pngs try:
# convert -delay 25 -dispose Background +page myscreenshot_*.png -loop 0 animated_test.gif
# fbgrab filename.png
directly creates a PNG on the Neo.
Note: You can get the fb2png binary from [this] RPM package. The original website seems to be dead and fb2png is not packaged in debian.
