Of course I am not assuming that. But I don't know all the other desktop
environments out there and I expected that they more or less all have a
reasonably well working way of taking screenshots. After all this is
where the functionality belongs.
Perhaps the xfce project should think about adding such a tool. Or
simply integrate an existing tool. All that needs to be done is to set
up some global keyboard shortcuts. But that's better discussed on the
xfce lists, I guess...
A lot of people don't run an all-out "desktop environment"; they run a
simple window manager (fvwm, ctwm) precisely because they don't want a
heavyweight environment weighted down with gadgets. xfce4 is popular
because it is much lighter weight than KDE or GNOME.
