How to install the shutter screen capture program on CentOS? Command to install shutter successfully


problem: I want to try the shutter screen capture program on my CentOS desktop, but when I try to install shutter using yum, it always tells me “no shutter package is available.”. How can I install shutter on CentOS?

Shutter is an open source (GPLv3) screen capture tool for Linux desktop. It comes packaged with a lot of user-friendly features, which makes it one of the most powerful screen capture programs in Linux. You can use shutter to capture a screenshot of a regular area, a window, an entire desktop screen, or even a web page from any dedicated address. In addition, you can also use its built-in image editor to edit captured screenshots, apply different effects, export images to different image formats (SVG, PDF, PS), or upload images to public image hosts or FTP sites.

Shutter has no pre built package on CentOS (as of version 7). Fortunately, there is a third-party RPM called nux dextop that provides the shutter package. So enable the nux dextop library on CentOS, and then use the following command to install it:

 $ sudo yum --enablerepo=nux-dextop install shutter
