In KDE you can use KSnapshot. There's also xgrab (segfaults on my system) and
Gnome probably has something. For a console you can just cut and paste.
KSnapshot includes a settable time delay and the ability to only grab the
window containing the mouse or the entire screen or a region. You can always
crop or scale a screenshot with something like xv or gimp.
