Why did my snapshot disappear?

Your snapshot may have stopped working for a number of reasons. I know of one that's easy to fix.

  1. Old snapshot. Xzewd looks for snapshots in your home directory in a file called ``.snapshot''. It used to also accept the filename ``.xzewd.bitmap'', but no longer. If your snapshot is in a file called ``.xzewd.bitmap'', the fix is simple:
      % cd ~
      % mv .xzewd.bitmap .snapshot
