Hmm, when I try it (and I'm assuming you're talking about gnome-screenshot here), I don't get the gscreenshot app window. It disappears before the shot is taken.

In any case, you can run "gnome-screenshot -i" which brings up an interactive dialog that allows you to set a delay or snap only a single window.

If you want something more feature-rich, you might take a look at gscrot.

This link will give you many ways to take a screenshot:

Code:
http://tips.webdesign10.com/how-to-take-a-screenshot-on-ubuntu-linux
In a terminal, it's as simple as:

Code:
import -window root MyScreenshot2.png
, but as you'll read, you can add the 'sleep' command to allow you to close/open windows, etc., before taking the shot.

cheers,
