   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.
