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.

Build fails on last update. It seems like error applying fix-unicode.patch

Building paused asking me to specify file to patch. I can't fix this mannually, because I'm not sure what file path I should enter there.

The output was the folllowing:

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

gnome-vfs is provided by gnome-vfs-smb. gnome-vfs has been removed from the official repositories and I didn't reupload it to the AUR because it is already provided by gnome-vfs-smb. I know that several people have a problem with this who are using AUR helpers like pacaur but I don't know what to do about it. Everything is fine if you use yaourt or makepkg+pacman. I asked the developer of pacaur what to do here:

I am using pacaur and also getting the gnome-vfs dependency error. I use to have a gnome-vfs package installed. But that no longer exists. pacaur cannot find a gnome-vfs package since it's called gnome-vfs-nosmb.

@PhotonX okay, gonna try to recreate what happend to me when I get VMWare Player working

PhotonX commented on 2017-01-29 15:12

@Kayshi: Please post the errors if you want to pursue this problem. You might also want to comment about it at gnome-vfs-nosmb's page.

Kayshi commented on 2017-01-29 14:07

@PhotonX I'm using packer and I had to install gnome-vsf-nosmb's dependencies manually because I was getting some unknown errors

PhotonX commented on 2017-01-28 19:33

gnome-vfs should be provided by gnome-vfs-nosmb: If it doesn't work for you, which AUR helper are you using?

Kayshi commented on 2017-01-28 19:13

can't install this package, getting "Dependency `gnome-vfs' of `shutter' does not exist."

PhotonX commented on 2017-01-28 17:47

@Haron_Prime: Thanks for the hint, I was playing around with the dependencies locally and forgot to revert the changes. Fixed.

After update shutter package gnome-perl indicates no longer necessary.
However, it is not.
Trying to run ends with the following errors:

Use of the encoding pragma is deprecated at /bin/shutter line 30.
Can't locate in @INC (you may need to install the Gnome2 module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /bin/shutter line 35.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /bin/shutter line 35.

The shutter does not start.
Recovery package gnome-perl problem is solved.
