@Squiffy: Had the same problem, it's not your machine.

As thenaterhood speculated, it's a problem with cached builds. Doing a clean install (yay will ask for it when doing yay -S gscreenshot) fixes the problem.

That's odd, I tried the same and still have the issue.

If no other are reporting the issue I'll accept it may just be my machine. Thanks for looking into it!

edit: this time I reinstalled gscreenshot without uninstalling first and it worked, thanks for making me tripple check!

Squiffy: I updated my Python and ran into the error you're seeing. Reinstalling gscreenshot fixed it for me.

Acknowledged! I'll look into it. Thanks for the report, Squiffy!

It's working now, thanks!

I made a minor change which I'm hoping will prevent Python from caching builds, which I suspect might be the problem. After doing a build from scratch I stopped seeing the problem. Give it a shot.

Thanks, I'm waiting.

Gotcha. I can replicate this as well, so it's not just you. Interestingly, I get the same error from pip, which makes me very concerned that something isn't right. I'm investigating.

By any chance, if you've recently updated your Python version, have you tried reinstalling?

Yep, I tried twice — the same.
