I want to capture virtual machine screenshot. I have installed xen hypervisor and I am controlling my virtual machines using libvirt-php API. It has a function:


When I execute it output:

Warning: libvirt_domain_get_screenshot() [function.libvirt-domain-get-screenshot]: Cannot find gvnccapture binary in /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/myvms/vnc.php on line 9

So, I need to install gvnccapture binary. Anyone knows how to get it using apt-get or any other way?
