I am not sure what you mean by 'frame grabber', but command-line tools from
ImageMagick called 'animate' as well as 'mencoder' allow you to capture,
stitch, animate, rip (legally, of course) images/videos.
I also wrote a screen grabber for Linux a month ago. It should work under
all distributions with ImageMagick, which makes it merely all modern Linux

You can use VXL < http://vxl.sourceforge.net/ > or Tina <

that also (if not only) run under Linux.
