Description Dee-Ann LeBlanc 2003-11-06 01:13:54 EST
Description of problem:

I open both the GIMP and OOo Writer (or any other OOo component), try
to take a screenshot either as Window or Full Screen, and if the OOo
component is in the shot I am told "Can't Open File if XWD File" ... I
went to Preferences | File types and programs, and explicitly set GIMP
as the XWD handler, but that didn't fix the problem. I also
doublechecked that I have room on my hard drive, and I do.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Detailed above.
Actual results:

Error message detailed above

Expected results:

Screenshot I can use to turn in my book files on time!

Additional info:

This happens in GNOME and KDE, and my system is not a fresh FC1
install, it's a yum update from test3

This might not be vital to anyone else but it's immensely vital to me.

The screenshot works for me from gimp on FC1 - yum updated from
rawhide to fc1.

Try using alt-printscreen from gnome to take the screenshot of the
window, see if that works better.
