Spectacle doesn't Capture in Rectangular Region Mode
« on: 05. May 2016, 01:09:40 »
I use Spectacle quite often, and just noticed that it does not capture any images in the "Rectangular Region" mode. You can capture the image in the full screen mode, but not the rectangular region mode. You only get a blank page when you copy something. I even reinstalled it and still the same thing. No  image is captured. The funny thing is that it works fine on my Toshiba Tecra,  with ATI graphics, and my Lemur Laptop with Intel graphics, but none of my HP desktops with NVIDIA graphics. So I tired to install the good old Ksnapshot, but no longer is available. So how can I fix this? Also all my computers are up-to-date.

Using Plasma 5 and this isn't posted in the KDE forum? Using Proprietary drivers? Also check your compositor settings in Workspace settings.
Mine are set for OpenGL 3.1 - GLX - Tearing Automatic
As I am using Open default drivers on my legacy Ati-4350 card on dual displays running Netrunner Rolling Plasma 5.
And Spectacle works in Region mode fine on my rig.

It used to work before this last update.

I know that Spectacle replaced Ksnapshot, but can I download Knapshot safely since Spectacle is not working, as I can't find any good substitute? I also reported this problem as a bug.

Nope as no longer maintained and discontinued. Also requires much KDE4 frameworks which would conflict with Plasma 5 versions.

Same problem for me. I use a ThinkPad x61 with an Intel 965GM. It has worked before. I don't know what happened...
...and I wonder if they fix it in the near future...
This is a signature - for God's sake!

Spectacle regional screen cap, vanilla KDE in vanilla Arch, just now:



Hardware specs are correct. Hope that helps isolate the problem.
