Umm. I think in most linux distos there is a tool for file associations, check around.

With me, there is an option to choose the program which is used by default. I cannot give you exact instructions though bceause I do not know if all distos are the same, and I do not know what disto you are using.

For the screenshots, it all depends on what disto. Some have a screenshot icon built into the main menu, others do not.

I would suggest getting gkrellm which has a plugin (or maybe a builtin) which allows you to take a screenshot.

After pressing PrintScreen, open any graphical editor (eg. GIMP), and use paste command from its menubar?

If u want to take screen shot of particular window, highlight that window, the press Alt+PrintScreen, and repeat the same thing? In this way unwanted things won't appear in Screen Shot.

Dude, what disto? I can't work without that

There are many disto specific installers that I am sure will work for you Check on his page, and either change your user cp to say what disto or just tell me

import -window root filename.jpg

to take a full screen screen shot.

or add the switch -pause 2
to give a 2 second delay if you want to close any windows or anything first.
