Here's mine to start things off

no windowmakers!

Well let me be the first. Here is mine www.friendlynaber.com/images/desktop.jpg
I just love Eterm, I have 5 different desktops with it, and the --viewport-mode has to be one of the coolest effects.

i always use the Gimp to capture a screenshot.

Goto File > Acquire > Screenshot
and then is pretty self explanatory from there.

There are a number of ways, the simpliest is probably the import command which is part of Image Magick. I wrote a shell script and added it to my menu:

Code:
sleep 2
import -window root ~/pics/ss/`date '+%y-%m-%d'`.jpeg
cp ~/pics/ss/`date '+%y-%m-%d'`.jpeg ~/pics/ss/.thumbnails/
mogrify -geometry 150x100 ~/pics/ss/.thumbnails/`date '+%y-%m-%d'`.jpeg
This waits for a couple of moments (to let the menu close) then puts a screenshot with a filename that is the current data in /home/david/pics/ss and makes a thumbnail for my website in /home/david/pics/ss/.thumbnails

KDE seems popular...I've got a bunch, I just keep forgetting to put them on floppy (I have 4 OS's, 2 per computer. I'll just copy over the Linux ones (one Red Hat, one Mandrake) for here. Both run KDE.
