Description mailto1979@rediffmail.com 2020-10-12 03:50:47 UTC
After the recent update of Gnome-shell and other Gnome packages, I cannot use SHIFT key + Mouse Left click to select an area to create screenshot. However, I can use gnome-screenshot tool to select an area to capture screenshot. In Gnome-shell, the keyboard-mouse combo to capture screenshot used to work great until the update. There was some other issues like gdm crashing which got fixed after the recent fix.  I feel, it may be related. Please let me know, if any logs needs to be send.

Sorry for typing wrong. I am new to BTS. The problem is SHIFT+PrintScreen selecting area to capture screenshot using mouse is not working.

Yeah, screenshots cannot be taken using keyboard shortcuts. Gnome Screenshot works fine.

Distorted window buttons in Gnome-3.38. GDM also has similar distorted elements.

Another issue I faced is distorted icons and elements in gdm and gnome-shell. The close button and many other window buttons, embedded images in apps looks distorted. I fixed it by installing gnome-icons-extra and choosing the gnome icon theme via gnome-tweaks. I got the fix through freebsd forum. Still, gdm has distorted shutdown and gnome/gnome-classic chooser buttons displayed. I'm not sure, if it's all related or should I report it as another bug.
