Default Installing dependencies for Shutter Screenshot Tool


After migrating to BSD the only app that I miss is the Shutter

screenshot tool.

I have already made a port and PBI request but my guess is

its unlikely that it will be ported to 10.

I was told that if all dependencies are installed downloading

the source and running ./shutter will be enough to run the app.

In other words it doesn't need compiling.

I am not yet familiar with package management of FreeBSD.

I have installed some of the deps myself.

These are the deps needed my Shutter



libgnome2-gconf-perl (No longer needed in versions >= 0.90)
libgtk2-trayicon-perl (only if you are using a gtk2 version lower than 2.10.x)
libproc-processtable-perl (NEW! – since 0.86.2)
libgtk2-unique-perl (NEW! – since 0.87)
libpath-class-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libjson-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libjson-xs-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libnet-dropbox-api-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libfile-which-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libfile-spec-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libfile-basedir-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libfile-copy-recursive-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libproc-simple-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)
libsort-naturally-perl (NEW! – since 0.88)

I have installed the following myself

pkg install p5-Gtk2-ImageView
Now when I try to launch shutter I get

~% cd shutter-0.70.2
[user1@one] ~/shutter-0.70.2% cd bin/
[user1@one] ~/shutter-0.70.2/bin% ./shutter 
Can't locate Gnome2.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.16/BSDPAN /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.16/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.16 .) at ./shutter line 32.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./shutter line 32.

Problem is when I search for libgnome2-perl I can't find it.

% pkg search libgnome2-perl
This is the source http://shutter-project.org/wp-conten...-0.70.2.tar.gz

Those of you haven't used it, this is an awesome tool.

Please tell me how to search for the deps coz the names of the packages

If you can't find a dependency using # pkg search

You can always try using the web page:


Perl library packages/ports usually start with the name with p5-.

In your specific case I would try installing x11-toolkits/p5-Gnome2, that is just an educated guess from me.

I think most people here and the other board are going to use something simple like graphics/scrot for a screenshot.

Since even you are guessing I think I got no chance.

I am using KSnapshot atm and it works pretty well.

The specialty of Shutter is that it has an inbuilt image

editor which includes a tool set which is very useful.

The tool set includes arrow, it can pixellete specific areas

which can be used to hide sensitive information and some

other tools like rectangle, etc.

I have installed Lubuntu in a VM. If I feel like using Shutter

I can use it there.

I hope it gets ported soon.
