taking screenshot in GNOME with menus opened up
 
I have GNOME-2.18.I'd like to take a screenshot of Desktop with the menu opened for eg; Applications>Accessories like.
Now i tried printscreen in kbd,but it doesnt react.also i launched gnome-screenshot and again tried clicking its button to grab screenshot with menus open.but i cant do that without closing the menus :(
Hope some workarounds are there ..waiting :)

Launch gnome-screenshot from the terminal, with the --delay option:
Code:

gnome-screenshot --delay 5
Will take the screenshot after 5 seconds. You can open menus etc in this time.

I hope this helps
