Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:17:50 EST
Description of problem:
The gnome-screenshot program is not handling "Save in folder" properly, which
results in screenshots saved in another folder.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create some directories to save files in (mkdir -p ~/Desktop/images)
2. Press Alt+PrtSc or start gnome-screenshot to make a screenshot
3. Use the "Save in folder" dialog to navigate to the directory where you want
to save the file
4. IMPORTANT: In the dialog select the directory (images) with the mouse and
click the "Open" button.
5. The name of the directory is reflected in the GUI /Save in folder field
6. Click "Save". The image is saved in the parent directory (~/Desktop in this case)
The image is saved in the parent directory of what is selected.
The image is saved in the selected directory.
To actually save the image in the desired directory replace step #4 with:
4. In the dialog select the directory (images) with the mouse and double click
on it. You are now inside the directory (showing that it's empty). Click the

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
