Taking Screenshots


Is there any easy way to take screenshots? I saw somewhere some involved process using about 3 programs. Is there a simple download program that does it in one shot or is there some easy process I can't find?

I'm thinking about throwing together a page about my intro to linux, but would want to be able to take screenshots.

Any help would be appreciated!

I think you can also just press the "Print Scrn" key on the keyboard. I think that opens up Ksnapshot.

What?

Hmmm... I dont have KDE or GNOME. Only Blackbox. How do I make a screenshot? I see tons of screenies of Blackbox, but no way how to make them. Installing KDE or GNOME is not and option. (32MB RAM here =D )

Lightweight screenshot

Ha!

Just figured out howto make a screenshot myself!

As I am sitting on a low end machine without KDE or GNOME, I was resorting to the FOX toolkit.
It is shipped with a tool called shutterbug. Just invoke 'shutterbug' or 'man shutterbug' for help.

I am using FOX 1.4.6.

Cheers
