In Gnome, if you right-click on the taskbar, you can add an applet to it that lets you take screenshots.

"Print Screen" button...was the default on my GNOME . I saw the setting when I was browsing thru the Windows Manager (I think it was) configurator.

A common method is to use the GIMP and go to File -> Acquire -> Screenshot...

You can use the GIMP to take screenshots or import (man import for more info).
