My desktop system runs Mint 12, with GNOME3, MATE and Cinnamon. My video card is ATI, with the open source drivers installed.
I have come across this issue: When running GNOME3 or Cinnamon, applications that capture the desktop (i.e. Screenshot and GTK-RecordMyDesktop) grab the desktop background image instead of whatever applications are actually open on top of it. This either results in pictures that only show the desktop background, or videos that only show the desktop background (and me talking and teaching and pointing on a terminal that isn't there - which is funny, but not my intent). When switching to MATE, those two tools work as expected.
There are some fairly related search results around, like this discussion
for Fedora, or this bug
for Ubuntu. I just wanted to ask if other users have the same issues capturing their screen.
Steps to reproduce are: open a terminal window (or Firefox, or other) and hit PrtScn, or take a screenshot from Menu -> Accessories -> Take Screenshot.
