Is this version going to work on Wayland or not?

I have a similar setup to @borisjoffe and can confirm @msheremet's patch works for me (screenshots are functional again). Thank you all for your work on this!

I figured out that XDG_SESSION_TYPE variable doesn't depend on WM. It rather depends on X session startup. Display Managers set that variable to "x11" (probably something else for Wayland sessions) while xinit sets that variable to "tty".

So I created a patch for upwork launcher script. And screenshot issue for xinit sessions should be fixed now.

Special thanks to @borisjoffe and @gwash.

@gwash, sorry, I thought it was only for the working config. Will try it also.

gwash commented on 2019-03-05 12:38

@msheremet, I already did, "notion WM, and no compositor"

msheremet commented on 2019-03-05 11:39

@gwash, could you please also answer my previous question about DE and WM?

@borisjoffe, thank you for your reply, I'll try to reproduce the problem with i3 and let everyone know my findings.

gwash commented on 2019-03-05 09:40

@msheremet No, just Upwork support, and my own experience.

borisjoffe commented on 2019-03-05 09:28

@msheremet I'm using X11, no desktop environment, the i3 window manager, and am having the screenshot issue.

Based on:

1) Upwork support staff recommending setting XDG_SESSION_TYPE to "x11"

2) my XDG_SESSION_TYPE being set to "tty"

3) gwash saying that Upwork's fix worked for him,

it looks like the Upwork app is checking XDG_SESSION_TYPE before taking screenshots and assuming that the user is running Wayland if it isn't set to "x11". So I think gwash's statement is correct.

@gwash, please don't hurry so much.

The problem is that Upwork assumes you're using Wayland/GNOME3 whenever it can't figure which environment you're running

Do you have an evidence of this statement?

gwash commented on 2019-03-05 07:44

@borisjoffe Yep, that actually worked! With notion WM, and no compositor.

@msheremet The problem is that Upwork assumes you're using Wayland/GNOME3 whenever it can't figure which environment you're running.
