Description Warren Togami 2002-12-25 08:31:11 UTC

Description of problem:
Phoebe no longer runs gnome-panel-screenshot when you hit the Print-Screen
button like it worked in Red Hat 8.0.

The following info may or may not be related to this problem, but it does
describe some strange behavior of the gnome-keybinding-properties tool that
should be fixed later.  Havoc mentioned testing the "Keyboard Shortcuts" in the
"Preferences" menu because this may be some keymapping issue.  The default
settings there are:

Take a screen shot: Print
Take a screen shot of window: <Alt>Print

If you change the first option to most other keys it works fine.  If you 
attempt to set it to "Print" when it is already "Print", it displays a confusing
error message, "That accelerator key is already in use by:
/apps/panel/global/screenshot_key"  If you change the second option there is no
way to change it back to <Alt>Print, instead becomes <Alt>SysRq.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hit Print Screen button  

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
It should run gnome-panel-screenshot.

$ xmodmap -pke | grep Print
keycode  92 = Print Sys_Req
keycode 111 = Print Sys_Req

why twice?

Comment 4 Tommy McNeely 2003-01-05 06:49:34 UTC
Instead of filing a bug, I will just latch onto this one :)

Comment 5 Larry Troan 2003-01-09 15:45:39 UTC
Am told fix is in gingin Beta4.

Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-09 17:26:54 UTC
What was the fix? I didn't fix it... can I close the bug?

Comment 7 petrosyan 2003-01-21 04:47:02 UTC
Prnt Scrn and <Alt>-PrntScrn still don't work in Red Hat 8.0.93 (Phoebe2).

Comment 9 Gene Czarcinski 2003-01-29 22:18:30 UTC
On my 8.0.93 system, only keycode 111 shows up (same as on 8.0) but it still
does not work.

Comment 10 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-31 22:47:15 UTC
Conclusion of analysis here is that part of Owen's X patch was lost. The 
following needs to be deleted from all keymaps:

    key <SYRQ> {
        type= "PC_SYSRQ",
        symbols[Group1]= [           Print,         Sys_Req ]

Comment 11 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-10 13:11:55 UTC
Should be fixed in XFree86- in rawhide.  Please
test and close RAWHIDE if it works, or ASSIGNED if not.

Changing bug to MODIFIED state.

Comment 12 Kjartan Maraas 2003-02-10 14:31:53 UTC
Still not fixed here. I have two entries for Print Sys_Req. This keyoard also
has pgup/pause, pgdn/break, home/scroll, end/numlk, insert/prtsc, and
delete/sysrq. Is this the normal grouping for these keys for everyone?

I'm using XFree86-

Comment 13 Jay Turner 2003-02-11 13:06:32 UTC
Bouncing this back to Assigned, as there still appear to be some issues.

Comment 14 Gene Czarcinski 2003-02-11 16:06:57 UTC
Seems to work OK for me - XFree86 from rawhide.
