All is well, whenever you figure it out just feel free to let me know!
OK, tried it again and updated the instructions somewhat:


These are the dependencies:
sudo apt install libnotify-bin grim

and this is the screenshot script (I adapted it to store in /home/mobian rather /home/purism

SCREENSHOT=${HOME}/Pictures/$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S).png
notify-send -t 1000 screenshot "Taking a screenshot in 5 seconds"
sleep 5
notify-send screenshot "Screenshot stored at ${SCREENSHOT}
Totally unrelated but I figure you know more about this then I do. Do you know where the information is stored when running the command to scale an app?
I think that this script is only not so useful for the main screen, since that one can only be seen if no apps are running.
In that case you can connect with SSH, and run grim from there.
Except unless you want to show off the background, it might have no meaning to make a screenshot of the main screen anyway.
