Hi,

Just a quick question:

Is shutter (http://shutter-project.org/) (still) available under Fedora?

When i click on this link (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/shutter) on the Shutter Download page, i get a page saying:



Not Found

The requested URL was not found on the server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.


Thanks!

It's in the fedora repo as @ f27. I don't know the development status. Last I heard it doesn't work with wayland but should be ok if you are using X.

That's bad news reading that link. also in another thread i posted is was suggested that people had issues with wayland and replacing it for Xorg.

This is a good example of how things evolve in the Linux world. Xorg has been dated for a long time and has outlasted many attempts to replace it. Wayland seems to have major momentum, but a major change like this does not happen without a period of sorting out the issues.

If enough of the other upstream solution suppliers buy in and support Wayland, things will eventually re-stabalize ( to the extend "stable" applies in the open source world ).

However, one of the outcomes of this type of evolution is that the applications developed for "X" which have reduced or completely lost their development community will be left behind.

Looking at the "Shutter" website it appears that the last release occurred more than three years ago. It may be that you would be better off looking for an alternative solution that has active development activity.

Its too bad that a perfectly functional solution fades away, but that is a characteristic of a world based on source code compatibility (open source) rather than binary compatibility ( Microsoft??).

The above is my perspective on the Linux world we live in, others may completely disagree and that is another example of the joys of the "Open Source" world. :cool:

PS, Or you can continue to run "X" in Fedora, its still available at the login prompt.

Wrong! Read this update (http://shutter-project.org/2017/09/after-a-long-time-a-new-bug-fix-release-0-94/) and you will see it is still alive, up and running1

I think i give Xorg a shot. Ill test it first in a virtual machine ofcourse..

That only records my desktop to a movie file isn't it? I like Shutter for the rich features it has. And i'm used to it.

I use to work with Shutter for long time,But when you install the software it make downgrade.
So the Only close software that I use now and it make the job is:


GNOME Screenshot is a simple utility that lets you take pictures of your computer screen. Screenshots can be of your whole screen, any specific application, or a selected rectangular area. You can also copy the captured screenshot directly into the GNOME clipboard and paste it into other applications.

GNOME Screenshot allows you to take screenshots even when it's not open: just press the PrtSc button on your keyboard, and a snapshot of your whole screen will be saved to your Pictures folder. Hold Alt while pressing PrtSc and you will get a screenshot of only the currently selected window.

You can install it from the software option.

The page you reference claims a recent release, but the latest news item on the page is Dec 2014. The latest source package available for download is August 2014.

It may be someone has plans for revival, but there are clear indications of less than active development.

I really don't care one way or the other, just trying to provide advice on how to navigate thru the oceans and reefs of the open source world. ;)

shutter is available to install with dnf and works find under xorg. It doesn't work in Wayland. So your options are a) use xorg instead of Wayland until Wayland is a bit more mature (although shutter will likely never work as I doubt anyone will do the dev work) or b) continue to use wayland and find a wayland compatible screenshot application,

I also experienced the same case in wayland with shutter
Maybe you can try using gnome shell extension screnshoot

if all you need is a screen shot maybe scrot would work until shutter gets updated in fedora?

Hello everyone.

I just like to confirm that Shutter software works fine with Fedora 27.
