I just have a little script bound to the Print Screen key.
I understand you are using XFCE, within which there is a
means of binding keys through some graphical interface, I believe.
(I use openbox, so just added the binding in my rc.xml).

The script simple does

filedate=$(date +%m%d%y%H%M%S)

scrot $filedate.jpg

gthumb $filedate.jpg


This creates a screenshot with scrot, with the filename
corresponding to the date-time (monthdayyearhourminuteseconds.jpg,
essentially), then opens it for preview in gthumb.
I have the script at /usr/local/bin/screeny
I have another script to swiftly scp it to my remote host for display,
and another to upload it to imgur, if I prefer.

All Tony, all the time!
