Q:
Is there an easy way to get screenshots in Linux?



A:
Yes - there are many ways to get them. One way is to press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard and see if anything happens. In Gnome, it should load up a program to take a screenshot of the whole screen. If that doesn't work, Gimp has a tool to acquire shots of individual windows or the entire screen under "File -> Acquire -> Screen Shot"
