Everytime I take a screenshot the result is only the background image. Doesn't matter I do it via print key or open the tool itself. It does the same for opened windows when hitting ALT+Prt Sc no matter if I'm fullscreen with that window or not.

Any ideas? :/


sudo lshw -c video gives

    Proprietary Drivers cause that in my system with an AMD R7 card. Probably a Gala/Mutter bug. Aug 1 '15 at 19:51
