    Anyone know how to take a screen shot while rotating the cube in Hardy? Cause it doesn't do the normal "Save screenshot to" because I'm on the cube, and it doesn't go to my paste bin either.

    Install scrot (command line tool that allows you to take picture of screen and set increments of how much time you want from when the command is executed and when the picture is taken).. example:

    If it's installed:

    scrot -d 5 &

    Would allow it to wait 5 seconds before taking the screenshot.

    Otherwise, the print screen button?

    Rofl. Look for the screenshot app then put it on timer for 10 seconds then quickly hold the keys to acitvate the cube and hold them untill it took the screenshot.
