Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Shutter is a screenshot tool, similar to the Windows 7 Snipping Tool. The latest version available is Shutter 0.91, which has been recently released, coming with a few changes only: a new icon has been implemented, the support for the imm.io image service has been removed and the the session tab does not display thumbnails anymore. For more information about this release, see the official announcement.
In this article I will show you how to install Shutter 0.91 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Isis, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, LXLE and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
