    *quick question* good screen capture program?


    i can't believe i'm asking this (as it seems everyone knows of one)

    What's a good program that I can use to save the desktop as a pic....to post in the "post your desktop" threads . I found a way to use a terminal for this, but then I'd have a terminal sitting in the middle of the screen :P ...so can someone suggest a program for me?

    ksnapshot is the best I've used.

    If you usually use KDE, in kcmshell keys search for "shot" to take a screenie without KSnapshot.

    I actually haven't used KDE in a while . I run XFCE4, but it's loading both Gnome and KDE libraries so I can run most programs from each

    thanks for the suggestion though...sounds like it could be useful

    Ksnapshot is useful in that you can easily set your capture on a time delay. That way you can get menu's up if you want them shown in the desktop capture.

    Maybe display, from imagemagick, it's comand line, it's good, it's simple...
    Code:
    display name.jpg
    is the simplest way...
    Code:
    man display
    for more
