does anyone experience this problem: when sharing full screen on skype, using gnome shell, the panel disappears, all windows disappear and the other user don't receive the screen either. sort of a freeze. i'm on ubuntu 11.10, oneiric ocelot. gnome shell. how can i fix the problem, and if it's a bug. who should i report it to? gnome or skype?
- with google plus screen sharing, there is no problem at all. it works as expected.
- i did notice, the same thing happens, when i tried to use gtk record my desktop application. with ffmpeg instead the problem does not occur.
- using unity the problem does not exist.
i'v reported a bug on launchpad. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/skype/+bug/879895
if you are having this issue, please comment on the bug and click, the bug affects me
IMPPORTANT UPDATE: i figured that when unticking the option in gtk recordmydesktop of outlining the capture area, the panel does not disappear. and the problem is solved. the question is how do i disable the outlining of the capture area in skype while sharing desktop
