Re: [hatari-devel] Screenshots are saved in Hatari installation directory

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


I've tested this new macOS fix and it appears to work correctly, thanks! It was a bit messy before screenshots, landed everywhere because I sometime start Hatari with scripts, sometime not. More than often I just took the macOS window-screenshot instead :)

Screen dump saved to: /Users/ae/Desktop/grab0001.png

And sorry I wasn't quick enough to test the release candidate build before it was released, but it appears to work fine on my machines which are Mac Pro 5.1 with High Sierra and Macbook Pro 15" non-retina with Sierra.

I could try to wake up the old 32-bit 2006 Macbook if really needed too.

Hi all,

I have implemented this now and I'm testing it. Feel free to test it as well:

@David - on non-macOS this will not change the existing behaviour at all. On macOS it will either use the standard screenshot directory ~/Desktop or the one the user has selected instead through the official macOS preference plist.

It will "break" the existing behaviour of saving screenshots to the Application/ directory on macOS, but that's clearly a bug from a macOS usage point of view and should be fixed instead of relied upon existing bad behaviour.


PS: macOS caches the value if you override it and it has meant that my testing is a bit complicated. I don't want to log out and log in all the time .. so testing by others is very helpful.

Maybe the path should be in hatari.cfg (then it is configurable).
Only if the change come from Hatari. I don't want to have to change something in Hatari sources for MacOSX.
Or only if agreed by everyone.
And don't break what already works for others.
I think a user-friendly software package should be customised
by the packager for a specific platform (customised hatari.cfg).
No, bad idea. MacOSX specific part, if they exist, should only use MacOSX Default SDK, nothing specific to Mac in Hatari.cfg.
