Install Flameshot on Raspberry Pi


A simple tool to take screenshots of your screen or just parts of the screen. It is similar to Microsoft's Snipping Tool.

To run: Menu -> Graphics -> Flameshot
To use: find the flameshot icon in your taskbar (system tray) and click it to open Flameshot.
To run in a terminal: flameshot

Fortunately, Flameshot is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Flameshot.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Flameshot will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
