Bug Description

When using the Advanced selection tool in remote desktop windows (Terminal Server Client, for example), GScrot locks up after drawing the area to be captured. It does not react to Enter or Escape key presses, and the whole session is practically locked up. Only solution found so far was restarting the XServer.

Could this be because drawing the selection gives focus to the remote desktop and thus makes it impossible for GScrot to "listen" to key presses?

With the simple selection tool and the screen capture, everything works fine.

Changed in gscrot:
assignee: nobody → mario-kemper
importance: Undecided → Medium
milestone: none → 0.65

"Could this be because drawing the selection gives focus to the remote desktop and thus makes it impossible for GScrot to "listen" to key presses?"

You are totally right here.

=> Fixed in 0.70.

Changed in shutter:
milestone: 0.65 → 0.70

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem on the local machine (no remote desktop windows at all).
Shutter 0.86.4 Rev.906
ArchLinux, openbox v. 3.4.11.2

None of the keys are working. I can change the selection but there's no obvious way to cancel it. The only way to cancel it is to kill shutter process in another terminal -- I cannot switch windows in window manager as well.

Simple selection tool works just fine, though.
