Hello Sean and everybodies, :-)

I read your reply and tried to paste the screenshot by using kpaint. 
However, it didn't work. I checked the clipboard after I pressed 
"ctrl-print" and the clipboard was empty. When I run "xev" to check the 
event posted by X, hey! the print-key event was there. Can anyone give 
me some possible explanations on this condition? Thanks.

By the way, about my name, I didn't copy it from D&D. I am a Chinese and 
"Snow Dragon" is my chinese name in English and I cannot give a ice 
breath ( I would like to do this in the summer).
