The command 'dev2bitmap(plotname, type="jpeg")'
does the trick too.
Thanks to all those who sent helpful tips. It seems that I
am posting these questions to the wrong list, my apologies!

What about using dev.copy? Or am I missing something? In windows there is a
context menu when you click with the right mouse button, which lets you
choose how do you want to save the plot. On linux I came up with such
function, which albeit not perfectly but does the job:
cur <- dev.cur()
else cur <- NULL
It copies told device (current by default) to bitmap file. This function
could be easily adapted for copying to other formats.
Since the answer was too easy, probably I did not understand question
correctly. In that case please ignore this message.
