If you are using X11, try xwd(1) that comes with it. You'll need a tool
like netpbm or ImageMagick to convert dump files to other formats.

Or you can use the gimp to capture and process window images under X11.

I'm not aware of any screen dump apps on the console. You can of course
run console apps in an X terminal and capture that.
