Irrespective of operating system, doesn't just using the 'PrintScreen'
key, then opening the screenshot in Gimp do the trick?
Followed by 'Crop' to taste.

Actually, no.
On Linux/X11/DWM, for example,  it does.. precisely nothing. Gnome includes
that keybinding you mention, so it will work if you are running Gnome, but
not KDE. Also-- does a Mac keyboard even HAVE a PrintScreen key? Google
saith: no, it doesn't :)
