    Or simply press the PrtSc (Print Screen) key - this should pop up a dialog to save a file of your screen shot

    Thx, but my problem is I have a minimal XFCE 4.6 installed.
    I don't have XFCE Menu -> Accessories -> Screenshot and PrtSc (Print Screen) key doesn't work.
    What's missing?

    The screen-shot is actually a plugin for XFCE panel.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4-screenshooter-plugin
    (or use Synaptic)

    Then you should get the menu entry (you may have to add it to the panel).

    Check if the menu has "take screenshot option now". To get the PrtScn button working, you need to right-click on either the top or bottom panel, select "add" and then add the screenshooter applet.

    Right-click on your panel, select "add" and then add a screenshooter-plugin. This should work.

    Also if the command is:
    Code:
    xfce4-screenshooter -f
    and if the command works, then you can add that to the keyboard shortcuts. Go to Setting Manager -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts and add the command. You can bind the command to any key that you want.
