How have I made ‚Äč‚Äčthese photos:
I started the session normally. I started Top with 20 seconds between 
measurements. I looked at the display of Ksysgard, I had previously modified 
to sample every 5 seconds. Ho, chance: the system was in our case. I tried 
an "Alt + F2" to start Ksnapshot ... Chance again, the appearance of the 
command window did not "unlocked" the system. I waited. Just after a refresh 
of the display of Top, I pressed "Enter", happy to have photographed a rare 
bird. The only unexpected thing is that Ksnapshot was programmed to wait for 
2 seconds. Of course, the launch of Ksnapshot broke the deadlock, and the 
second photo is nothing exeptional as is that of a "normal" situation.

I think it may be important to note that my system is outdated. My previous 
experience of updating Ubuntu resulted at least twice a complete 
reinstallation of the system after hours lost for download and hard to 
reboot. I prefer to keep the system functioning as it is now. The basic 
system is what's on the DVD "10/10 kubuntu-trinity-enterprise" downloaded 
8/26/2011.

Good luck to everyone,
Patrick
