Follow the announcement to "get a list of affected packages":

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl'
gnome-perl
gnome-vfs-perl
gnomecanvas-perl
perl-gnome2-wnck
perl-goo-canvas
perl-gtk2-imageview
perl-gtk2-unique

Check dependencies:

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qi gnome-perl | grep Depends\ On
Depends On : gnomecanvas-perl gnome-vfs-perl libgnomeui perl

Proper would be to check build dependencies.

Build after increasing the pkgrel of the PKGBUILDs:

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ yaourt -S gnomecanvas-perl gnome-vfs-perl
[snip]
[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ yaourt -S gnome-perl perl-gnome2-wnck perl-goo-canvas perl-gtk2-imageview perl-gtk2-unique
[snip]

Then launch shutter:

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ shutter >/dev/null 2>&1

Take a screenshot and edit the screenshot.

A note for shutter-bzr users: Shutter's latest release (0.93.1) exactly corresponds its latest bzr revision (1278), and since the development is dead for over two years the shutter-bzr package is obsolete. I requested its deletion, please switch to this package.

Current status concerning Shutter bugs:

FS#41357 - [shutter] 0.91-2 Launching a second instance causes first instance to crash
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41357

@topher1kenobe: Could you please describe what exactly you did and what errors you got? The order of packages is important when rebuilding the dependencies, you need to install them from the bottom of the dependency tree.

I've followed the instructions in the pinned tweet by Ralf_Mardorf to no avail. Any other suggestions?

@blueyed: Sorry for the late reply. Please follow the directions in the pinned comment by Ralf_Mardorf, you need to rebuild some of the Perl dependencies (in particular perl-gtk2-imageview).

I've just installed it again, and it fails to run:

% shutter --help
Can't locate Gtk2/ImageView.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Gtk2::ImageView module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.26/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.26/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.26/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl) at /usr/bin/shutter line 47.

Turned out, it is a different bug which seems to appear after the perl update to 5.26. I tried to revert all the patches which have been applied to 0.94 but no luck, the crashes remain. People also report crashes in Ubuntu/Mint (perl 5.24) which, however, only appear with one of the patches in 0.94... I couldn't figure out how to get rid of any of the crashes so far, unfortunately I don't even know perl. Patches dealing with these issues are always welcomed! :)

@meekreau: Thanks for the report, I can reproduce it. Probably one of those: https://bugs.launchpad.net/shutter/+bug/1711874 or https://bugs.launchpad.net/shutter/+bug/1715774 Might be that we need to revert a patch which has been applied to actually solve such second instance issues which appeared earlier...

meekreau commented on 2017-09-10 19:36

After the latest big perl upgrade, shutter segfaults when another instance is started. I did rebuild the packages listed by "pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl'". In the single instance mode, it seem to work just fine though. Is there some other action necessary after the perl upgrade or is it some compatibility issue?

@manuelschneid3r: Please follow the steps in the pinned comment by Ralf_Mardorf.
