Shutter 0.96 update, ported to Gtk3!

Published: May 22, 2021 by Alexey Sokolov

New Shutter update, 0.96, is here! It drops dependency on Gtk2, and starts depending on Gtk3 instead.

More specifically, these perl dependencies are gone:

  • Gtk2
  • Gtk2::ImageView
  • Gtk2::Unique
  • Gtk2::AppIndicator
  • Gnome2::Wnck
  • Goo::Canvas

These dependencies are new:

The feature of taking a section of window is removed (or, rather, commented out), because it didn’t work with the way how modern Qt and Gtk were drawing their windows anyway.

Possible issues:

  • Multiple screens might or might not be broken
  • HiDPI screens might do screenshot of a nested menu in a wrong place

If you encounter these, or other issue, and/or have an idea how to fix them, please tell us.
