Hello everybody,

I'm sorry, I have searched for that but I have not found anything. How can I capture the screen, like in Windows, that you push PrintScreen Key, and Paste it into and Edition program?

I have tried this and pasting in Gimp, but I have not get any result.

Thank you in advance,

Galder

Which version of Ubuntu are you using? If it's Warty (4.10) what you can do is click at "Computer" at the taskbar on top of your screen. Then "Take Screenshot" and lastly "Save".

Computer -> Take Screenshot -> Save to file / Save to desktop -> Save

Thanks! Yes, I use 4.10 Warty.

Do you know any other key shortcut in order to make a screenshot?

Thank you again Buffalo!

Computer -> Desktop Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts

There you can customize key shortcut for many things, including taking screenshot.

if that doesn't get it for ya, and sometimes it doesn't, also check that the following also have the same keybindings
gconf-editor>apps>metacity>global_keybindings>
and
gconf-editor>apps>panel>global>
