Just highlight and paste. If you mean to do a screen capture there are literally HUNDREDS of utilities for that. I prefer The Gimp usually, that way I can quickly resize/compress it as well.

Cool

well i know in rh8 you go to hat-->graphics-->the gimp
but if all else fails you can just open a terminal and type "gimp" at the prompt and it will open providing you have it installed..

ksnapshot will do that.

As for gimp, it's surely on your install CD's or on a mirror for your distro.

Cool

If you have ImageMagick, you can do this:
Code:
import -window root screencapture.jpg
and it will capture the entire screen to screecapture.jpg in your current working directory. If you want, you can write a script that does the capture and prints the resulting file and then use your window manager to bind the PrintScreen/SysRq key to that script. . .
A simple script (with no error checking or any Good Things that are necessary in a well written script) could look something like:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
/usr/X11R6/bin/import -window root /tmp/screen.jpg
lpr /tmp/screen.jpg

Open a terminal, type in:
Code:
import -window root screencapture.jpg
Your computer will beep twice and import will create a file called screencapture.jpg that is a JPEG image of your entire screen. This file will be in your home directory and you can view/edit/print it with many different programs, including konqueror (KDE web browser), mozilla, galeon (Gnome web browser), GIMP, xv, display, etc. One of these is certain to be installed on your computer.

Above he has the script written for you, you could copy and paste that into a terminal, save it, and execute it

OR, fire up a terminal (in X) and type:
ksnapshot (Yes, it's a KDE app, but you don't have to be in KDE to use it, however it does have to be installed )
And when it opens, use it

Cool
