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.

@diddyonlinux: It is a problem with perl-gtk2-imageview, I reported the problem here:

@FadeMind: Sure, it's an optional dependency.

For editor working shutter required: perl-goo-canvas

Good news: The second instance crash should now be fixed (with the update of perl-gtk2-unique to revision 22).

@wox: Sourceforge is down so the files are not available right now. Please retry building the packages later.

Concerning the question why gnome-vfs-nosmb instead of gnome-vfs, have a look at the comments of One year ago, when I reuploaded all the missing perl dependencies of Shutter to the AUR there was no gnome-vfs (without -nosmb) package. But now that gnome-vfs exists, I have changed back to gnome-vfs.

wox commented on 2018-03-03 20:45

I get this:

:: failed to verify gnome-vfs-perl integrity

:: failed to verify gnomecanvas-perl integrity

:: failed to verify gnome-perl integrity

... and shutter has not been installed.

Besides, it wishes to replace gnome-vfs by gnome-vfs-nosmb. Does not seem to make much sense, maybe?

@Pastafarianist: Is it possibly this issue: If so, I will ask bidulock to include this patch into his perl-gtk2-unique package!

I tested it myself and the patch actually fixes the issue!

PhotonX commented on 2017-12-26 14:31

@Pastafarianist: Thanks a lot for trying to track it down! Unfortunately, I'm not experienced enough in this level of debugging to be of any help, but if you can pin it down to something which can be reported against libunique or perl-gtk2-unique, it would be great!

I've taken a look at the segfault that manifests when a second instance is launched. This is most likely a problem somewhere in C code, either in perl-gtk2-unique or in libunique itself. Here is the backtrace of the crash:

The source of perl_unique_app_marshall_message_received can be found here. If you set a breakpoint right before the line I linked to is executed, you will see that command_name contains an invalid pointer. That pointer comes from unique_command_to_string, whose source is here. I haven't figured out what exactly goes wrong there though.
