Anyone have a preference for a screen capture utility?

The GIMP is best

File -> Acquire -> Screenshot

Set the Window selection and Grab delays, to give yourself a few seconds to get the right window focused and any cursor positioning you need.

For KDE there's `ksnapshot`

For Gnome there's `gnome-panel-screenshot` (from the CLI). `gnome-panel-screenshot` is also invoked (under Gnome 2.10) from the System menu ("Take Screenshot ..."), or by pressing the `PrtScr` key.

The other desktops take similar approaches. I guess `xwd` underpins them all.

But The GIMP is best.
