Description Rik van Riel 2006-06-25 19:26:51 EDT
Description of problem:

When taking a screenshot of my Xinerama setup, while in the large screen, and by
pressing <printscreen>, something goes wrong.

The total image is the right size, but only the left 1280 pixels of the screen
get captured.  This corresponds to the number of pixels on the right screen.

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

Some updates on this issue.

1.  Reproduced in FC6, with gnome-utils-2.16.0-1.fc6

2.  The incorrect capture size is verified as both height & width of the primary
(right hand) screen, but the image is rooted at the upper-left corner of the
secondary (left-hand) screen.

3.  I've attached a screenshot with (hopefully helpful) markers.

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
