[Bug 1480694] Re: Screen turns white after pressing Print Screen


You are using a PPA version of GTK

  libgtk-3-0 3.16.3-0ubuntu1~vivid2 [origin: unknown]

which causes this bug. It's not something which happens in Ubuntu 15.04,
so not a problem we can fix there.

You could ask the PPA maintainer to backport gnome-screenshot from
'wily' which has this problem fixed.

** Changed in: gnome-screenshot (Ubuntu)

  Screen turns white after pressing Print Screen

Status in gnome-screenshot package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  When print screen button is pressed, a white image covers the entire
  screen. When Shift+Print screen is pressed the selected area is
  covered with white color, behind which the 'gnome-screenshot' dialog
  box appears. I can not recover by pressing Alt-F4, Escape, but only by
  pressing Tab thrice and then Enter (which essentially saves the image
  in Pictures).

  Happens only with 'gnome-screenshot' and others like 'shutter' is
  working well.
