[SOLVED] gnome-screenshot in gnome3 problem

Hi,

When I try to take a screen shot using printscr, or in the command line using 

gnome-screenshot

I only get a picture of my background.

$ gnome-screenshot 
** (gnome-screenshot:1908): DEBUG: The GetProfileForWindow request failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.ColorManager was not provided by any .service files

The same thing happens with gcolor2:  When I try to grab a color from a window it returns the color
from my background instead.

Using gnome shell's screen cast functionality works just fine.

Any ideas to how I can fix this?

Thanks!

install gnome-color-manager. still i don't know why is needing that unless you enabled something or you don't use all packages from repos.


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-screenshot in gnome3 problem

Installing gnome-color-manager got rid of the error message, but it still doesn't work.

It did work at some point. I think it stopped working after I used multiple monitors (used
"gnome-control-center display" to enable only the external monitor, i.e. interal disabled
when external is connected). I'm using a lenovo x1 laptop with the intel sandy bridge driver.

Is there a way to access the monitor settings without "gnome-control-center display"?

Removing

 Option "Shadow" "True" 

from my xorg configuration solved the problem.

I enabled this option earlier to troubleshoot a freezing problem (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … tel_driver).
Updating the wiki to warn others.. tongue
