Description Sergio 2012-04-03 10:05:14 EDT
Description of problem:
'man xfce4-screenshooter' says: "-m, --mouse
              Do not display the mouse on the screenshot"

But as 'xfce4-screenshooter -h' says, the correct is: "-m, --mouse              Display the mouse on the screenshot"

Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2012-04-06 07:05:56 EDT
Thanks for reporting this. Good catch!

This kind of bug needs to be fixed upstream, thus I have opened a bug at

Once upstream fixes it, I will issue an update for Fedora.
Comment 2 Sergio 2012-04-06 07:59:02 EDT
I didn't find any man page in the upstream source code, though.
(There's only the HTML manual for the GUI)
Comment 3 Sergio 2012-04-06 08:02:41 EDT
Sorry, I found it and it's already fixed:
Comment 4 Sergio 2012-04-06 08:06:57 EDT
It was this commit that fixed it:

I had opened a bug report in Debian for it and it was still open, then I searched but, my mistake, I didn't find the man page.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2012-04-06 09:08:30 EDT

Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2012-04-06 09:10:14 EDT
Thanks for your research. I have issued an update for F17 and hope it gets in before F17 final. For the stable released however I don't consider the problem severe enough.

xfce4-screenshooter-1.8.0-5.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
