    alt-printscr might work, I know it does in GNOME2, it might in KDE.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.

    Im pretty sure (have not used it for a while) that GIMP does this
    its in the menus somewhere, if you have it installed, have a poke around

    The version of The Gimp that came with RH 8.0 does have this. It can be reached from:

    File --> Acquire --> Screen Shot...

    There are numerous programs which can make screen shots... But its much more convenient to create videos. For ex. if I want to explain to my friend the algorithm of working with a particular program, I can easyly capture a tutorial for him...
    I use Screen VidShot...
    It's quite handy tool!

    IMHO!

    To do it from a terminal:
    Code:
    import -window root screenshot1.png
    screenshot1.png can be changed to something else... And I think you must have image magick installed to use import.

    Partial capture

    Hi, is there a screen capture program that will allow you to 'mouse select' (marquee) only a portion of the screen to capture?

    Yeah, ksnapshot,a part of "kdegraphics" let's you do that (at least in the 3.4 version it lets you do that, I don't remember about the 3.3.x versions).

    Code:
    import -window root screen.png
    will capture the full screen


    Code:
    import screen.png
    will allow you to choose area of the screen using mouse
