Hi there,

If you're using KDE then just use ksnapshot.

there is a program in KDE called KSnapshot.

also there is a command line tool called import. This is part of ImageMagick.

If ImageMagick is installed (usually it is by default)

The command :
Code:
import screen.jpg
will let you sellect with the mouse the part of the screen you want to capture.
If you don't want to use the mouse a command like:

Code:
import -window root screen.jpg
will capture the hole screen.See the man page for more info.

If you have imagemagick installed then you can use import.
Code:
# import -window root ~/screenshot.png

Gimp does it too... import works best though!
