Copy screenshot to clipboard
I'm using RedHat, (which has a Gnome desktop). I'd like to be able to Press PrintScreen (or some other shortcut) and copy the screen into the clipboard, from where I can paste it directly into an openoffice document. At the moment the printscreen button brings up a dialog which offers to save the screen to a file or to the desktop. Any suggestions anyone?


(p.s. sorry I just posted this question on Slackware - wrong forum).

You should be able to Ctl-PrintScreen to copy it to the buffer, then Shift-Insert to paste it into a document
