Hmm, weird. Does it work fine to capture only VGA-1?

github.com:haansn08 (unverified) 3 years ago · edit

Running grim -o "VGA-1" gives a completely transparent png image. I just noticed everything works fine when setting the output format to jpeg or ppm.

Ah, these don't support alpha. Maybe we're incorrectly setting the alpha channel or something?
