I went to take a screenshot on a computer running openSUSE 11.4. I pressed Print Screen on the keyboard, and Ksnapshot loaded as expected. However, when I click "Take snapshot" it grabs an image from the openSUSE load screen instead of what is actually on the screen at the moment. I tried installing another screen capture program called xfce4-screenshooter. The same problem happens and it does not capture the current image on the screen.

How can I get Ksnapshot or xfce4-screenshooter to work properly?
