I’m looking for an alternative Fedora screenshot app with embedded editing capacities : adding circles, boxes, arrows and texts directly on my screenshots, without having to use GIMP each time I need to edit a screenshot I take with the default “Screenshot” Fedora app.
Do you have some app in mind please ? Thanks.

Shutter could be an option…
Is your screenshot tool not enough for what you need? Introducing Shutter, the lightweight and powerful screenshot utility available in Fedora Workstation.

A really really good options at least in fedora for 32,33,34 that works under WAYLAND, older releases doesn’t work for some problem:
in main repo:
sudo dnf install flameshot
in update testing:
sudo dnf install flameshot --enablerepo=updates-testing,updates-testing-modular
Hot to Used it
Select TAB → Startup Applications
+ and add flameshot there You can see
flamshot icons on Tray Icon
Shutter does not seem to work under Wayland, or is it just me?

No, you’re right, I had forgotten about that…
(here is the related “bug” report*):
1299293 – Shutter does not work with Gnome/ Wayland
Someone in the comment suggests as workaround: Take full screen capture (Alt +PrtScr) and open it with shutter for editing.
*it’s a feature, not a bug
Alt-PrtScr is the window snapshot.
Ctl-PrtScr is the full screen snapsot
For annotated screenshots under Wayland, I’m using a combination of the Gnome screenshot tool and the Drawing package (
this one). It is in the standard repositories and does great arrows, lines, boxes etc.
