RE: I wish to make a screen shot and open gimp on it
I would not use Gimp for the capture.

What linux are you using?
Look for scrot in your repo.

then a bash file along the lines of
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# FILE : scrnshot.sh
# Function: takes screenshot after 2 sec then opens in gimp
scrot 'tempgimp.png' -d 2
gimp-2.8 tempgimp.png

Depends on your distro how easy to make a .desktop file for your menu system

This is in PCLOS http://i.minus.com/iqVpqs2QFz3ui.jpg
