Or you can use the old days xwd command (included in xorg-x11-apps)...

xwd -root -silent -out screenshot.xwd

and then import in gimp or convert in pnm with xwdtopnm (in netpbm-progs)

xwdtopnm screenshot.xwd > screenshot.pbm

You can also dump other local/remote displays with the -display option....

You can also go to ebay, bid on a digital camera, then take pictures
of the screen when it arrives. Then take the flash card to the local
pharmacy, get them printed out, then take them to a photo processing
shop, and ask them to scan it, crop it, remove the flash glare, and
save on a CD as a TIFF.

Take the CD with you, insert into your computer, do "dd /dev/cdrom0
~/cd.iso", then "mount -o loop ~/cd.iso /mnt/cdrom". Run "tiff2pdf",
and then run "evince image.pdf".

In the morning, when evince has stopped rendering the image, click "fullscreen".

In the evening, when evince has stopped rendering the image again, you
can then press "Print Screen" and save your image as "screenshot.png."

Nothing to it, really.
