You can just launch gimp.
Then go to File/Acquire/Screen Shot
Then you can shoot a single window or the whole screen.
I'd recommend minimizing gimp before you actually take the shot.

You can also use either the import command or you can also take a peek at this page which explains the lazy man's way to make screenshots: http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/scrshot.htm
