Imagemagick Screen Capture: Black Windows??
Arch & kde4

If I try to do a screenshot with import -window root screenshot.png
all I get is the background with black boxes where the open windows should be..

If the entire screen is covered by, say a maximized firefox window, the entire screen is blank, the only thing that shows in the shot is the task bar...

Ksnapshot and scrot both work correctly but I need to use imagmagick for a bash script...

Any ideas?

Are you using some GL rendering stuff, like compiz? If it's rendering window deformations and such direct to the video card, that sort of data may well not be available to a more basic tool, like import.
