    If you have gimp installed you can use the "aquire - screenshot" from the main file menu. It allows you to grab either the whole screen or just the the active window. then save it as jpeg or some other format. there are other image applications that allow you to do this - i believe one called pixieplus or something exists among others. pressing the PrintScreen SysRq button in windows just copys the entire output to the clipboard which leaves you with a massive image that you need to then copy to an image application and save as jpeg or whatever...
