Description of problem:
The user takes a screenshot via Applications -> Accessories -> Take Screenshot. (That is, gnome-screenshot --interactive). The user may choose some options, such as grabbing after a delay and grabbing the current window.
The next time the applet is launched, the program remembers the delay setting but not defaults back to the radio tick box for grabbing the whole desktop. Surely it should either remember both settings, for the sake of consistency or neither?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Applications -> Accessories -> Take Screenshot.
2. Set to "Grab the current window" by clicking the radio box.
3. Set delay to four seconds.
4. Take an image and save it.
5. Launch the screenshot applet again.
6. The time delay has been "remembered" (it is still set to four seconds) but the other option has defaulted back to "Grab the whole desktop."
One setting is remembered but the other is forgotten and goes back to the default.
Both settings should be remembered.
The code to do that was disabled forever, and finally removed in 2008:
The reason for disabling it was that it 'breaks' the screenshot keybindings. You could arguably have added cmdline options for overriding gconf and use those in the keybindings, but meh.
Okay. Thanks for the explanation.
I think I am going to close this bug. If you feel strongly about this, please file an upstream bug with the suggestion from comment 1, thanks.
