Why does it take so long until Gimp finds out that no image is on the clipboard

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am using Gimp 2.8 under Xubuntu 18.04.4 LTS.

>From time to time I use Gimp to crop screenshots in order to paste the right part of a screenshot to a report.

Sometimes, my screenshot utility (xfce4-screenshooter) does not put my screenshot onto the clipboard when I invoke the screenshot utility by the right shortcut. I have no idea, what's wrong then but alsoLibreOffice tells me that there is noimage on the clipboard in these cases. In some of themthere still is text on the clibpoard from the last clipboard operation, so the error message from Gimp is ok.

Whatreally annoys me isthat it takes almost a minute for Gimp to tell me that there is no image on the clipboard.

* Why does it take that long?

* What can developers do to speed up the error message in such a situation?

* By the way: Is there a method such that one can see what type of data is on the clipboard: text/image/file designation/spreadsheet data, ...?
