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

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl'

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

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its latest bzr revision (1278), and since the development is dead for over two years the shutter-bzr package is obsolete.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

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: or Might be that we need to revert a patch which has been applied to actually solve such second instance issues which appeared earlier...

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?

@kotnik: Try to replace the gnome-vfs-nosmb dependency in the gnome-vfs-perl PKGBUILD with gnome-vfs. (On my machine gnome-vfs-nosmb builds fine, however...)

kotnik commented on 2017-09-08 17:23

Can not be installed currently since the dependency `gnome-vfs-nosmb` fails to build.

@PhotonX thx, that might have been the issue.

@chris_muc: JPG has no alpha channel (partial transparency) support, so I guess that the thorn paper plugin won't work properly for JPG files.

chris_muc commented on 2017-09-07 09:44

@PhotonX it seems the issue is only with jpg files. When I change in preferences image format to png all filters work fine. I can live with that :)

if you could would you please check following commands:
First I have created with shutter t1.png file


$ convert t1.png \( +clone -threshold -1 -virtual-pixel black -spread 10 -blur 0x3 -threshold 50% -spread 1 -blur 0x.7 \) +matte -compose Copy_Opacity -composite out.png

$ convert t1.png \( +clone -threshold -1 -virtual-pixel black -spread 10 -blur 0x3 -threshold 50% -spread 1 -blur 0x.7 \) +matte -compose Copy_Opacity -composite out.jpg

the first out.png was created fine
the second command creates out.jpg and does not work as expected

If you could tell me if both of these commands work on your system, would be great.
