Try using the combination PrintScr or Alt+PrintSc.

If this don't work, use Shutter and configure the "Preferences > Advanced > Capture > Include cursor" options

Just found this:

[ubuntu] Screenshot include mouse pointer? - ubuntuforums.org

Start gconf-editor and check /apps/gnome-screenshot/include_pointer

Seems to work for me with PrintScreen -> gnome-screenshot ...
