Hello ,

I am working with a Linux system but I don't know which one I know it has RED HAT but not sure of the version. Are there any shortcuts for taking screenshots ?

You should be able to check the version by looking at /proc/version or in the case of RedHat, there is a file in /etc called redhatversion or something like that which will tell you the version.

You can create a shortcut, but first you need to know which program, if any, you have on the system, such as:

gnome-screenshot (1) - capture screen or window and save the image to a file.
ksnapshot (1) - KDE Screen Capture Program

You can check using the command:

man -k screen | grep shot
