I just wonder why there is no cleaerer message like
"platform not supported"
As a workaround I use now:
cmd = "import -window root %s" % fname
img = Image.open(fname)
using the 'import' command of the ImageMagick tool kit
Is there any other way to make screen shots in Linux, ideally without
creating an intermediate file
