I am trying to enable the Edit button in Shutter. I installed the application from Ubuntu Software and are using Ubuntu 18.04.

After taking a screenshot the Edit button is disabled. And when hovering the mouse pointer over the button the text "Goo::Canvas/libgoo-canvas-perl needs to be installed for this feature" is shown.

enter image description here

I have tried to install the package libgoocanvas2-perl and restarted the computer, but the edit button is still not enabled:

sudo apt install libgoocanvas2-perl

That is the only package I can find.

Anyone that knows how to fix this?

I found a solution here: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2018/04/fix-edit-option-disabled-shutter-ubuntu-18-04/.
I can confirm that it works for Budgie 18.04.

  1. Download and install the libgoocanvas-common and libgoocanvas3 packages.

    Either use Gdebi package installer (available in Ubuntu Software) or
    run command in terminal (press Ctrl+Alt+T) to install the package:

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/libgoocanvas3_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/libgoocanvas-common_1.0.0-1_all.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install

  2. Finally download & install libgoo-canvas-perl package:

    Also install the package via Gdebi or terminal command, since Ubuntu Software doesn’t solve dependencies automatically:

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/libgoo-canvas-perl_0.06-2ubuntu3_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install

To apply changes, kill Shutter process or restart your computer!
