If you are wanting to take a screenshot you can always use Gimp.

Edit: What distro and WM are you using?

Edit2: I should have looked at you user name.

If you are using Fedora, you can use "Take screenshot" (Applications > Accessories). If that doesn't cut it, click on Add/Remove Software - there are quite a few applications in there that perform that sort of task.

If you're using Fedora, and perhaps any version of Gnome, you can do it from the keyboard. Press PrtScr for a complete screenshot or Alt+PrtScr for just the active window. If that is not configured, see the keyboard shortcuts configuration item in the menu to fix it.

Or use ImageMagick, you can cut exactly what you want (or the whole scrreen)
I use this little script :

#! /bin/bash
import screen.jpg; kuickshow screen.jpg;
exit 0;
The simple way: make executable and put it on the desktop.
Replace kuickshow with your favorite.
Replace jpg if you want png,tiff,xpm or something else.
