So I installed scrot. But I don't see anything in its man page resembling 
the --fullpage option. So I'll have to play I guess.

Humm:
gene@coyote:~/linuxcnc/nc_files$ sudo apt-get install screenshot
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package screenshot
gene@coyote:~/linuxcnc/nc_files$

I do have ksnapshot though, and it works well for what I've needed to, 
but I don't think it has the --fullpage option.

I try to remember to say thank you to those supplying good information.
