Ubuntu 14.04 screenshot app just gives background image using ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 with its proprietary driver

Question asked by gitju on Jan 8, 2016

When I take a screenshot I just get the background image of my desktop.

Its for example not possible to take a screenshot of a browser window which is open.

 

My system:

"Elementary OS" 0.32 ("Ubuntu" 14.04 64 Bit)

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 with installed proprietary driver for an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 using "Ubuntu" 14.04

 

I saw that this error exists since at least 2012 and that the reason is the proprietary driver

Bug #1080002 “screenshot app gives plain blank screen” : Bugs : fglrx-installer package : Ubuntu

 

Can AMD/ATI fix that bug or is there a patch/solution already available?
