Description Jose Rodrigo Sanjurjo Amado 2000-12-13 12:52:06 UTC
The Grab command doesn't work in the program xv (from
xv-3.10a-15.i386.rpm). When you use it, the program goes 'out-of-lunch', as
it is said by John Bradley.
Could you go to http://www.trilon.com/xv/downloads.html#patches and correct
this bug in the rpm file?
Thank you.

Josi Sanjurjo.

Comment 4 Jose Rodrigo Sanjurjo Amado 2000-12-29 11:47:40 UTC
I have installed xv-3.10a-15.i386.rpm from
When I run xv, and I use the Grab command, after I press the Grab button, I can
not grab any window (for example, the terminal window), except the xv window.
If I select "Hide XV windows" in the xv grab window, then I can not grab any
window or a rectangular area, and the XV windows don't come.
If I use a delay, I can not grab, and the XV windows don't also come.
Do you need more information?
