    I found this on another forum. It apparently works if you have ImageMagick installed (though I haven't tried it yet):

    Code:
    $ import -window root screenshot.png

    With the base install it doens't.

    I've just tried it and is says: "import: unable to open X server"

    Maybe I'll try a bit later.

    Thanks anyway, m8.
