    This app totaly rocks, its one of the most solid UI/UX and also its features rich. I have not seen this good ubuntu app for a long time. It works its intuitive, it has everything linux usually lacks.

    Is there any version of shutter for CentOS4? Thanks.

    My question seems to have been overlooked.

    I am using Linux on my laptop but got a new desktop with Windows (need this for work with audio + video) recently and I would really like to use shutter on it too.

    Is this possible? Can Shutter be compiled so that it runs (maybe through Cygwin) on Windows?

    I am not a novice anymore but still learning in terms of programming et cetera.

    How would I do this?

    Thank you!

      I decided to look here, and this seems like a good question to answer. Use ShareX. It’s a great screenshot tool IMO, I think you’ll like it.

    Is it possible to compile Shutter so that it can be installed on Windows?

    What would I have to consider to do this?

  5. Please let me know the instructions to build from source.

      Shutter is written in Perl. You can simply run ./bin/shutter. Please note that you need to install the dependencies first.

      • Thanks for the reply, I did found the hard time installing the dependencies. For instance how can I know what is the write libgtk2-perl library for CentOS (or some other system, but I use the CentOS). I used the rpm -qa | rep libgtk2-perl and nothing is no my system. First I need to know how to find the right libgtk2-perl dependency for my CentOS 6.2. Ah, is this possible after all. Then I would do the rpm -i ….
        Thanks. DB

          There are already some instructions to install Shutter on CentOS: . This should resolve 99% of the needed dependencies. If you still want to use the latest version afterwards you can simply download the tarball, extract the files and launch ./bin/shutter.

          • Thanks for the feedback. I did it using the Nux. Just let me know for the dependencies how to find the RPMs. Once I know how to do that I will send you a list of all dependencies as links so it will be easier for navigate that way.

            • Romario

              Hm, maybe you can use ‘yum search’ or ‘yum provides’ – I don’t know the package names. I was successfull with this command (to find the package for libgtk2-perl):
              yum provides 'perl*Gtk*'

              Maybe you can download the spec file from the Nux repository. It should already list all the package names.

  6. Thanks for share the source code, i’ll try to build a package use this. 🙂

    I get the following warnings and errors (listed at the end) on my openSUSE 11.3.
    The isn’t included in the openSUSE-Repository (Third Party Packages) and the source code tar.

    Is there a way to get this file or run the application?
