I’ve been using Manjaro for a couple of years, and I had never encountered a problem with screenshots until very recently (I can’t pinpoint the exact update causing it). It’s not a problem per se, instead it’s a very annoying behavior.
Previously whenever I tried to take a screenshot I would just press a shortcut (Super+Shift+S in my case) or the PrintScr key, which I had bound to
/usr/bin/flameshot gui. That opened the rectangular selection tool of Flameshot, which I then used to take the desired screenshot.
Now, instead of going straight to the tool, a dialog called “Screenshot” opens in the middle of the screen, saying “Share this screenshot with the requesting application?”. I have to then press the “Share” button, which then allows me to use Flameshot, otherwise said program notifies me that it is “Unable to capture screen”.
It is highly annoying, an unnecessary intermediate steps which I do not know how to disable. I thought it was because that screenshot dialog could also be bound to those shortcuts, but apparently it is not, therefore I have no clue as to what triggers it. I would gladly accept any help you could provide me.
Thanks a lot.
PS1: I think it might have to do with Wayland, because in another (also Lenovo w/ Manjaro) laptop I have which doesn’t yet use Wayland doesn’t present this behavior, although it might be for a different reason.
