This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

If your system is configured so that taking screenshots doesn't give you a dialog box where you see a preview and decide where to save the file, then it is probably saving them to whatever location is set as the default.

The Pictures folder directly inside your home folder is the most likely default location, unless you've changed it.

Eliah Kagan, thank you for your answer - I found them in folder "/home/username/Bilder" (Swedish Ubuntu 12.04). – Peter Engstroem Jun 30 '12 at 15:35
