How to Print a Screen

Hi All. I have just installed Red Hat Enterprise V9.0 edition on a server. I am new to LINUX and of course have problems to overcome. I am trying to do a print screen from the file manager screen. When I hit the PRT SCREEN key I get a pop up that says what file do you want to go to /root/screenshot.png or the desktop. I have a printer working and simply want to go to the printer. Is there a way to do this? I appreciate any help. Thanks all.

You should redirect it to the printer input. This is done in Linux using >> which redirects the output to standard input. You have to know how your printer is called (i.e. /dev/printer), to redirect the data to that device.
