a) How do I take a screenshot of anything in Linux? (Gui I mean)... In
Windows, I would just hit printscreen and go to an image editor and get
it "paste"d. Tried but no luck, on KDE running on Knoppix/Debian.
More advanced solution.Use GIMP. From their you can chose.
Simple solution. If you are running GNOME, try Action->Screenshot.
b) Which is the best GUI (okay, there is nothing called the best, I
hear you say, so which is the most popular?) for Linux? I wanna stick
to one and learn that well. (Learn a GUI?? Yeah, unlike Windows, I
already see the Linux GUIs oozing with power and productivity-boosts if
only you know how to "do" it right).
Most people prefer KDE, but it is bloated and a memory hog (though I
heared KDE 3.2 is better in performance). For me (who is a developer)
GNOME is really a better desktop. If you (in future) want to develop
linux applications, then you may find GTK+/GNOME libraries a lot more
better option than QT/KDE. So choose your desktop by considering all
c) If you don't want me to waste your time with questions like a and b,
answer d at least.
Atleast for you first question, Google can answer, why not try it? I'm
quite sure that you may end with lot more results than posting it in
d) Is there a website for Linux-Newbies (particularly winusers in
previous avatar)? Where they explain answers for stuff like a and b?
Checkout the desktop websites
google for x window managers
And the most important one
;(The Linux documentation project)
Use IRC (XChat)
If you want you can get Mandrake 10.0 - 3 CDs from me.
Thanks in advance.
