    How to take a screen shot?


    Hi,

    I'm using Mandriva Linux 2009 with KDE, and I would like to know how to take a screen shot of the entire desktop as well as just individual windows. In Windows XP you do this by pressing the PrintScrn or Alt-PrintScrn buttons and then paste it into MS Paint/Photoshop/etc.

    How do I do this in Mandriva?

    Thanks

    Thanks, that worked, though not as convenient.

    KSnapshot (Menu>Graphics) is a very good tool for this.
    There is an option there to select the entire desktop, or just the open window, or even a selection.
