Is it possible to create a pixmap of the current desktop ... or part of it ... using gtk2-perl?

Get the Gtk2::Gdk::Window for the root window.  Create a pixbuf from it.
Save the pixbuf to disk.

  use Gtk2 -init;
  my $s = Gtk2::Gdk::Screen->get_default;
  my $w = $s->get_root_window;
  my $p = Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf->get_from_drawable (
            $w, undef, 0, 0, 0, 0, $s->get_width, $s->get_height);
  $p->save ("screenshot.png", "png");'

I don't know if that works on anything but X11, though.

Excellent. Now things are looking fancy :) It seems to work perfectly on Windows too. Thanks Torsten. And sorry about the delayed reply ... it's very busy at the moment.
