The new Edubuntu "Thin Client Manager" installed on my feisty machine today with some updates (it was Student Control Panel a couple days ago). It looks
like this tool does as Petre suggests above and creates snapshots for a
multiple screen view. It also has a refresh button underneath the thumbnails
to update the images in the list.  Also if you are looking at a list of
clients on the left hand side when you select one the right hand pane show a list of running processes along with a thumbnail of the current desktop. The tool doesn't work for crap right now as I assume it is still in development.
But maybe you could get the source from that to see how it is done.

Does anyone know where to get the source for "Thin Client Manager"
(Student Control Panel)? The last time I checked I couldn't find it.

It's python.  You can find it on any edubuntu system.
