Install Shutter in Fedora 10

Install Shutter in Fedora 10

Shutter (former named Gscrot) is an open-source feature-rich screenshot program. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window.

Shutter has a .deb package officially, which allows you very easy to install in Ubuntu Linux, but it had no .rpm package available, so things are quite difficult if you want to run it in Fedora 10 system. I tried to install months ago, but failed to install its depencies.

Last night, I finally got to know how to install it in Fedora 10, because @liusuilong and Gcell compiled a rpm package for Shutter, it’s quite convinient now…

1. For 32 bit desktop

Download the following .rpm packages:

perl-Gnome2-Wnck-svn20090118-1.fc10.i386.rpm
perl-Goo-Canvas-0.05-1.fc10.i386.rpm
shutter-0.70.1-1.ppa2.fc10.noarch.rpm

and then install them like below:

$ sudo yum localinstall perl-Gnome2-Wnck-svn20090118-1.fc10.i386.rpm –nogpgcheck
$ sudo yum localinstall perl-Goo-Canvas-0.05-1.fc10.i386.rpm –nogpgcheck
$ sudo yum localinstall shutter-0.70.1-1.ppa2.fc10.noarch.rpm –nogpgcheck

2. For 64 bit desktop

First download the following packages:

perl-Gnome2-Wnck-0.16-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm
perl-Goo-Canvas-0.05-2.fc11.x86_64.rpm
shutter-0.70.1-1.ppa2.fc10.noarch.rpm

and type and run the following commands:

$ sudo yum localinstall perl-Gnome2-Wnck-0.16-1.fc11.x86_64.rpm –nogpgcheck –enablerepo rawhide
$ sudo yum localinstall perl-Goo-Canvas-0.05-2.fc11.x86_64.rpm –nogpgcheck –enablerepo rawhide
$ sudo yum localinstall shutter-0.70.1-1.ppa2.fc10.noarch.rpm –nogpgcheck

Enjoy!

  1. $ sudo yum localinstall perl-Goo-Canvas-0.05-1.fc10.i386.rpm –nogpgcheck

    This fails with package not signed.

    It can be corrected by appending –nogpg to the end (replacing –nogpgcheck).

    Thanks for the instructions though.
