I have just taken a screenshot (for a bug report), using the methods 
described on the Wiki page.

The only snag is that fb2png is not avalable for Ubuntu, but you can 
download the rpm and extract the binary with alien

Steps are:

cat /dev/fb0 >myscreenshot_001.raw
copy to your desktop
b2png myscreenshot_001.raw myscreenshot_001.png 9 480 640 16
