if by print screen you mean you want to capture a screen shot, you just need to run the import command.

import -window root screenshot.jpeg

or to be able to select an area of the screen

import screenshot.jpeg

hope this helps...although I don't quite understand what you meant.

Hi orgcandman,

Thanks for your reply! Ill try to clarify the question more.

Users need to be able to start a Konsole session, then telnet to a remote application.

Once in this application, users need to be able to capture a "screen" then print it.

So the question is, how do I capture a snapshot image of the text in Konsole and send that image to the printer ?

Hope that makes more sense.

I think you are on the right track with your reply, but is there an easier way to do this ? Can I map a key in linux to capture a screen function in Konsole ?

I need simplicity here, the users are pretty much only used to there application commands, and will not be open to doing much more then that.

Thanks again !

fun with shell scripting....

ok, well, here's a "quick 'n dirty" way of doing things...

take kde's feature for binding commands to a key and bind
"import screen.jpeg" to some key <foo> or whatnot.

Then take that image and run it through konqueror or some
other jpeg viewer and have them print it.

You could invest in magicfilter and use that to write a script
similar to:

-- begin bash --
#!/bin/bash

import screen.jpeg
lpr screen.jpeg
-- end bash --

magicfilter automatically changes the jpeg to the canonical format
to be printed. you could check the import manpages for some way
to choose the currently focused window (I know there's a way to
do it...I just don't know how)
