install shutter(screenshot app)
well, im running sabayon 4.1. im not sure i'f im already running 4.2 because i just updated all the packages. well, anyway, here's the problem.
i downloaded the files required for shutter since i had no choice because shutter aint in the repos. i copied the files from shutter's bin folder to my bin folder. i also copied the files from the share folder to my share folder.
i can see shutter from the applications menu thingy, but it doesnt do anything. nothing happens when i click it.
are there dependency issues or sumthin? did i do something wrong?
Sabayon is based on gentoo, right? Gentoo definitely has an ebuild for shutter.

If you do want to install it yourself, the dependencies are listed at the bottom of the shutter download page.
It may also be a permissions problem. By default, scripts you download (shutter is a perl script), do not have permission to run. Security and all.
Since you're putting it in /bin (which I don't recommend, by the way - better to use /usr/local/bin and keep stuff you install yourself separate from stuff the package manager handles), you probably need to change the permissions as so (as root)Code:
chmod 755 /bin/shutter
