KDE screenshot


I need to get a screen shot of my KDE desktop, and I can't figure out how. I have no problem in Gnome....but I can not find the screenshot tool in the start menu. I would be very thankful if someone could guide me in my quest for the screenshot! TIA

I'm sorry, I don't quite get what you are trying to explain. Maybe you could explain in a less advanced user language. Thanks.

Hit Alt+F2. A small dialog box pops up on your screen. Click on that dialog box and enter "ksnapshot" and then press the enter key. A screenshot taking window will open up. You can set the application to take the shot right then or a few seconds later (when you have ready what you want to shoot). Do that if you need to.

I guess I dont have that package installed or something ...

Maybe What I should be doing is an upgrade from fedora core 1, to FC 3

Get KDE to the point at which you want to take the screenshot
Press the <Print Screen> key on your keyboard
go to K->Personal Files (Home)
Go up to Edit -> Paste
it will ask you what you want to call the file
call it screenshot.jpg or something similar (it will need to be a jpg though)
done

ksnapshot is part of the KDEGraphics metapackage. Its difficult to get it seperately. If you want to learn a little, reading the man page for import will do you good (which is what ror was suggesting). Its always good to read the manual for your tool, regardless of what you use it for, so you can get the most out of it. There's also another little program, which you run from a terminal or command prompt, called "scrot", which you'll definitely have to install,as its not in a default install either. Its got as many small parameters that work as well. Whatever works, right?
