Many people had a problem with logging into the app, where the browser is used in process. Somehow the scheme handler wasn'picked up by the browser (Firefox in my case), and the solution was to use xdg-open:

@PositivePulse, you shouldn't have to edit your GDM config just to switch to Xorg. Just click the gear icon and select the Gnome on Xorg session.

Shame how they completely disable the functionality on Xorg now though. Before it was working fine on KDE with a few workarounds.

@PositivePulse Feel free to let upwork know about this issue on their support forum.

temporary workaround is to switch to xorg (this is huge ....) on my system it was a matter of editing /etc/gdm/custom.conf and uncommeting WaylandEnable=false. After sudo systemctl restart gdm, screenshots work. But I can not stress enough how disappointed I am

PositivePulse commented on 2023-11-16 15:48 (UTC)

ok so this broke badly for me. I'm using wayland. Screenshots no longer work, it literally suggests: "use Xorg". This annoying built-in upgrade feature is preventing me to use the app unless I build it myself with the PKGBUILD from below. I've had problems with this app before, it was pretty bad, like 9/10 bad, but now its 90/10. any help would be appreciated. it seems like this package is now pointless unless you use Xorg.

Upwork is updated and they decided to add a feature to close the app if it's not updated. So, any updates?

Here's the updated PKGBUILD if y'all need it immediately.

New version is out there , need update

Snayler commented on 2023-06-17 07:07 (UTC) (edited on 2023-06-17 07:41 (UTC) by Snayler)

@urbenlegend I had the same issue for about 3 or 4 work sessions, but it only happened on a laptop I used while traveling. The desktop install at my office, although the same version, was taking the screenshots correctly. I don't know why, but it seems the laptop install started working as expected again out of nowhere, without any new updates on the Upwork app. It started working again after an OS update, so maybe something was interfering with the screenshots. Manjaro here (Arch based OS).
