    Exclamation Screenshot flashes twice?

    Has anyone noticed this or am I the only one? Basically, it flashes again the first time which intended but then flashes again (for a shorter interval) when the "Save File..." prompt is presented to the user. It's only a comestic issue but it's still rather annoying....I have a Nvidia GPU if that could be related at all.

    Anyone know of a potential solution, apart from replacing the default screenshot package with another?

    Bump, is nobody else really seeing this?

    Could someone with a Nvidia GPU test this to confirm and see if it happens for them?

    Flashing twice here on both NVIDIA and ATI RADEON, tested with both open source and proprietery drivers.

    I guess the issue is so small that noone really has noticed it, or cared about it.

    Weird...So most likely an issue with the default screenshot app, regardless of the GPU....

    I think THIS is the launchpad bug reported for this issue....Is anyone else on here experiencing this or know a fix?

    If this is affecting you, please comment on the bug/mark it as "it affects me!" so we can get someone to look into this....

    Is it related to integral webcam?

    When I press PrtScr in Ubuntu the webcam activates too and I think I see what you are describing, but I have Intel Graphics

    After multiple updates, seems like this is still an issue in 12.04 and multiple people are seeing this, not just those with a Nvidia GPU

    Re: Screenshot flashes twice?

    Yes it flashes, ( 12.04 ATI Radeon). It also flashes when you click on an image to zoom it in image shack for instance, the second monitor flashes as well, so I am inclined to believe it is purely a result of the graphics buffer being set up. It was rather disconcerting at first, especially in some light conditions,but it doesn't bother me now as I know to expect it.
    There is always a way, but it might not be the best way, or your way!
