Re: Black windows when taking screenshots in LXDE
I find that, on a box with an NVidia card using nouveau that with openbox, I get that issue. (The possible FUD is that I don't know if this is a nouveau driver issue, or something else mildly wrong with the box or the install--but I haven't gotten the problem on any other machines.)
Using scrot solves it. I also find that if I use the very low resource dwm window manager, as opposed to openbox, I don't have the problem. So, even though LXDE is relatively low on resources, I wonder if the problem might have something to do with openbox (which is the window manager used by LXDE). I've only used openbox and dwm on the only machine that gives me the problem, so don't have any other evidence.
Ok, just tried it with fluxbox and again no black windows in several attempts. So, maybe it is an openbox or openbox dependency, issue, but I reiterate, those are just guesses on my part based on VERY limited experience.
