Hey this is probably a silly question, but what's the easiest way to make a screenshot in Linux? I have tried printscreen then a ctrl-v in on my laptop but that doesn't seem to work.
Any help is appreciated.

Nevermind, I'll just stick to using the gimp to make my screenshots. I guess in a way its the easiest.
