This is a continuation of my notes on installing Ubuntu 16.04. In this post, I install the programs that I use for working with different kinds of media like recording audio or creating videos.
I use shutter a lot for documentation and taking notes. Some of that makes it to my blog. So, I was delighted when I saw that they had a new version available and that it was easy to install.
I am thinking about adding this repository to my regular list of things to install.
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my main laptop. Clicking the buttons to walk through the Ubuntu install wizard is only the tip of the iceberg. Now comes the job of installing all of the programs and tools to make it what you want.
Read on to see what I did first with my new installation…
I have been using Shutter a lot recently. It is a great tool for sending screenshots — a picture is worth a thousand words!
I just checked, and I have version 0.85.1 installed. I just have the version installed from the 10.04 repository. On 9/12/2010, they released version 0.86.4 according to this post.
So, I decided to try to upgrade. The website has a nice instruction page to show you how.
Basically, I just ran the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa sudo apt-get update
Then, update manager popped up and offered to update Shutter.
Here are the new features or changes that this gives me:
The coolest part is that I learned that I can drag a screenshot from shutter and drop it into GMail. Before, I would have to copy the filename, and then I would have to insert an image in GMail, browse, and paste the path in the browse dialog.
