Take a screenshot

I have two nice monitors in the office, but the gnome screenshot tool captures only one of them, so not the entire desktop is on the image (debian etch).

Scrot works fine with several monitors, but we don't have scrot installed, but we do have imagemagick (wonderful tool i say once again). From command line, if you want to capture everything then use this command:

import -window root -delay 200 screenshot.png

If you want to capture just one window, use this command:

import screenshot.png

Go to imagemagick website for more options of the import tool.
