This is an odd thing for me and it doesn't seem to matter which kernel I use, which drivers (Radeon HD 6870 is my card) I use (open source default, fglrx, fglrx-updates or one directly from ATI/AMD) I use or which desktop I use (in Cinnamon on LM 14 Nadia currently, but happens in KDE, Xfce4 and MATE).
When I take a screenshot using Print Screen or Shutter or even GIMP, the screenshots NEVER capture all of the open windows on the desktop. It's random, but it either only captures the background, icons on the desktop and the panel, or it captures all of that with, for instance, windows which have already been closed. It NEVER captures the terminal window when it's open and, let's face it, I like my terminal at my beck and call at all times. =P
I am just wondering if there is any fix for this weird behavior. I've done lots of searching on Google and on these forums, but nothing has given me a good answer.
So... if anyone has advice on this, I'd truly welcome any that you have.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
