Bug ID: 374864
Summary: Using "Capture the current pop-up only" option causes
Spectacle to disappear
Product: Spectacle
Version: unspecified
Platform: Gentoo Packages
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: General
Assignee: ***@BaloneyGeek.com
Reporter: ***@eliasprobst.eu
Target Milestone: ---

When using the "Capture the current pop-up only" option, Spectacle will simply
disappear when using the "Take a New Screenshot" button and never show up
again.

It doesn't matter whether there's a pop-up to capture shown or not.

Spectacle doesn't crash - the process is still there - it just won't do
anything and its window stays hidden.

Spectacle from git/master 249505a804c
Qt 5.7.1

I noticed this too with Spectacle 17.12.1 and Qt 5.10.1.

However, turning compositing off will capture something instead of getting
stuck. Unfortunately it's not the area of the screen I was interested in.

See also Bug 371768.

I'm seeing this with 17.08.3. Haven't yet tried turning off compositing.

Confirmed on Arch Linux, spectacle 17.12.2.
When compositing is off, spectacle takes an empty "screenshot" if cursor is on
an pop-up (dolphin context menu, for example).

Are you sure this is a duplicate?
- It works fine with the compositing/KWin code path.
- The other bug is about closing, here we don't even get a screenshot.
- The other bug is all about notifications, nothing we have here.

The other way round, of course.

I was thinking that the root cause is likely the same.

Hmh, I think that's very unlikely. The issue in the other bug is that closing
is delegated in a lambda to Plasma (!), and if Plasma fails to call back,
Spectacle stays open forever. He we have a problem in getting an image from
KWin, i.e. we are not even in the code path triggering the notification ("GUI
mode").
