Android Screenshots on Ubuntu

So I wanted to create screenshots of my HTC Hero Android phone from my Ubuntu desktop. So I …

  • downloaded and extracted the android sdk to e.g. ~/programs
  • cd into the ./tools directory
  • run the ./android program
  • Install any version specific stuff required
  • sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/90-android.rules
  • sudo service udev restart
  • Unplug the phone and plug back into the computer
  • ./ddms

At that point I can see my phone listed and can use the menu to take a screenshot.
