Shutter is currently available through our own apt-repository hosted at launchpad.net.
Please take a look at our step-by-step installation guide if you do not know how to configure your system to use third party repositories:

If you are familiar with PPAs the following short description might be helpful:

1) adding the PPA

########On older (pre 9.10) Ubuntu systems########
Each PPA has its own unique key that is used to sign the packages in that archive. To add the PPA’s key to your own system open a terminal and enter:

wget -q http://shutter-project.org/shutter-ppa.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list with root privileges (e.g. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list) and append the following two lines (depending on your release of ubuntu)

#Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10)
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/shutter/ppa/ubuntu gutsy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/shutter/ppa/ubuntu gutsy main

#Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/shutter/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/shutter/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

#Intrepid Ibex (Ubuntu 8.10)
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/shutter/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
