shutter The screenshot tool has recently been removed from Debian Unstable and Ubuntu 18.10 (to be released tomorrow). It can still be installed on Ubuntu 20.04, 19.10, 19.04, 18.10, and 18.04 by using the new Shutter PPA provided by Linux Uprising (including all its dependencies, allowing editing screenshots, adding comments, and even taking screenshots of full web pages) .
The popular screenshot tool uses Gtk2 and Perl, and is one of the very few packages that prevents Debian (and Ubuntu) from removing obsolete packages.
libgnome2-vfs-perl From the storage archive. Since the shutter cannot work without these software packages, so Removed From Debian Unstable and Ubuntu 18.10 repository.
This is the result of removing some optional dependencies from Ubuntu 18.04 and Debian Buster 6 months ago, which caused the application edit / comment feature to stop working unless the user manually installed these packages from an older version of Ubuntu or Debian .
When the shutter is still down development ofIt seems that there was no progress in recruiting a new developer in 2017 and porting it to use deprecated Perl modules and / or Gtk3. Before this happens, Shutter will not revert to Debian and Ubuntu. If you can help, please check the project page on the following page Launch pad.
Another method you can help is to create a Snap and / or Flatpak software package for the shutter. Since such software packages include the libraries needed to run the application, this is ideal for Shutter using old libraries. There is currently no Snap or Flatpak software package for Shutter. You can choose to use alternative Shutter products such as Ksnip and Flamshot.
How about on Ubuntu / Pop! _OS / Linux Mint continues to use Shutter
So, what if you still want to use the shutter? Since I use Shutter every day, I created PPA and its dependencies for it, so anyone who likes it instead of other screenshot tools can continue to use it. I could have built Snap or Flatpak, but now I have no time to study how to create such a package.
PPA includes the latest version of Shutter (which is higher than the version in Ubuntu 18.04), the required dependencies for Ubuntu 19.04 and 18.10, and optional dependencies. You can use this PPA not only in Ubuntu 20.04, 19.10, 19.04 and 18.10, but also in Ubuntu 18.04 / Linux Mint 19 or 19. * This is not only because there is a newer Shutter version in the PPA and some bugs have been fixed , Also because it provides missing optional Shutter dependencies. These dependencies add support for editing / annotating images in Shutter, and support for AppIndicator, thanks to the built-in AppIndicator support, so that the Shutter tray icon can be displayed without enabling the tray in Ubuntu 18.04.
You can use the following command to add PPA and install Shutter in Ubuntu (or Pop! _OS) 18.04, 18.10, 19.04, 19.10, or 20.04 / Linux Mint 19.x:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/shutter sudo apt-get update sudo apt install shutter
Edit: I also added
gnome-web-photo Package to PPA. The package allows Shutter to take a complete screenshot of the website (take a screenshot of the entire height of the website, regardless of its height), while Ubuntu 18.04 and newer Linux Mint 19. * are not provided. You can use (install after adding PPA on all Ubuntu versions supported by PPA minus all Ubuntu versions on Ubuntu 20.04)
gnome-web-photo For Ubuntu 20.04, because I cannot get
webkitgtk Successfully constructed):
sudo apt install gnome-web-photo
After the installation is complete, restart Shutter and click the website screenshot button (or select
Web (From the indicator / tray icon), then enter the website URL, and Shutter will take a screenshot in a few seconds.
