Thread: openSUSE 12.3 64 KDE - Ksnapshot freezes system when capturing Klipper time options to clipboard

  1. #1

    Default openSUSE 12.3 64 KDE - Ksnapshot freezes system when capturing Klipper time options to clipboard

    With ksnapshot trying to capture all the "Copy to Clipboard" time and date options (time delay 8 secs), I get as far as selecting the area and the OS freezes. Even the clock stops. I can select again but no progress. Esc has no effect. I switch it off to start again.

    Any suggestions?

    SO I gave this a try under openSUSE 12.3 and KDE and I had no problems making it work. I use the screen capture a lot to help others here in the forum. So, I wonder if its a hardware or more likely, a video issue of some sort on your system? Can you tell us more about your PC and video chipset? Have you loaded any proprietary video drivers or just using the default open source one? How did you install openSUSE 12.3 exactly?

    Thank You,

    install and use shutter. Has more features than ksnapshot.
    Code:
    su -
    zypper in shutter
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit

    Let me know the commands to run to determine more. It's a fairly old machine, Ipex SlimOffice6. I could look inside if needed. But in the meantime:

    # /usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard --short
    graphics card:
    Intel 965Q
    Intel 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller

    # cat /etc/SuSE-release
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 12.3
    CODENAME = Dartmouth

    Monitor: PROVIEW
    VGA1 (Connected)
    Size: 1440x900 (Auto)


    BTW the time being stopped is no clue. It stops anyway.

    I installed 12.3 over 12.2 from an ISO I burned after downloading it.

    So when you say you installed openSUSE 12.3 over 12.2, was that a clean installation or an upgrade or tell us the procedure you used. It is possible a kernel upgrade might help. I see you can get and install kernel 3.8.4 right now.

    https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...x-3.8.4.tar.xz

    AND

    S.A.K.C. - SUSE Automated Kernel Compiler - Version 2.60 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    You can use this terminal command (you copy from here and paste into terminal) to fetch the SAKC bash script:

    Code:
    rm ~/bin/sakc ; wget -nc http://paste.opensuse.org/view/download/78302130 -O ~/bin/sakc ; chmod +x ~/bin/sakc
    You still need to read the Blog as you need to load the development and C packages to install your own kernel, but I give explicit instructions on how to do this from YaST. IN openSUSE 12.3 and using an nVIDIA video cards, I could not get openGL to work in openSUSE 12.3 without upgrading the kernel to 3.8 from 3.7, so you may need to do the same.

    Thanks for the reminder. I had it in 12.2 but lost it in the upgrade. Lost Openshot too.

    You are welcome. Now that i hear that we installed 12.3 over 12.2 it would be better to first answer James' questions

    If a clean install is where I delete what's there manually first, no. I just wrote over whatever was there with the DVD I made.

    For me it looks a bit daunting. If there's a new kernel, are we likely to be offered it in the repositories? Thanks so much for the details you've provided.

    Thanks James. I read you useful notes about the repository for the stable kernel so I tried it. URL only works without the quotes! So I'm happy to have 3.8.4 installed but this had no effect on Ksnapshot behaviour. I don't know if trying the RC version would break anything.
