    See attached a screenshot of my desktop.

    It isn't normally that blurred, it's just I jpeg'd it to make it smaller.

    The blurred bit on my taskbar is not really there, just something I decided I didn't want on the shot.

    Try this command to dump your screenshot directly to a .gif file (a bit smaller in size):

    xwd | xwdtopnm | ppmquant 256 | ppmtogif > screen.gif
    I think that should work when you're in X -- possibly even when you're not! I haven't done much playing with it.

    Nope, I tried gifing it and the file size was even bigger. I tried png too, but that was large. I think it's my fault for having too high a resolution and too many colours (and Antionline's of course, which "happened" to be on my screen)
