Question how to print screen in linux

Hi All,

Perhaps a dumb question, but how do you do a "print screen" within the X-Window in linux. I'm running KDE, is there a utility I can use in that package that I'm not aware of. Or, is there a way to turn on the <alt><print-screen> function with the keyboard?

Thanks in advance.

I believe there's a programme called K Snapshot in KDE, but don't ask me how to use it though Smilie I haven't been using X for quite some time.
hope this solved your problems

Also check out xwd... check the manpage for more info, since I have used it maybe once...
