Gnome Screenshot

An excellent solution is the Gnome Screenshot applet. This is run when with Desktop$\rightarrow$Take Screenshot. It can also be run from the command line to capture the window with current focus (after a 5 second delay) with:

  $ gnome-panel-screenshot --window --delay 5

You will be asked to specify a file into which the screenshot is saved.

Under Gnome's Keyboard shortcuts the Print key will take a screenshot and Alt-Print will take a windowshot. (However, whilst these are mapped as such they do not work. There is some discussion, late 2004 and early 2005 about this. The current resolution is to map Print to another key, like Shift-Ctrl-Atl-P!)
