Shutter with LXDE

Asked by nomnex on 2010-09-28

I have little experience with DE (Desktop Environment) and WM (Windows Manager). I am currently using Gnome (on Fedora13) but my PC specs are low. I might try a lightweight environment.

Can I install Shutter on LXDE? Can I use the same .rpm I have used to install Shutter on Gnome? Lastly, does shutter come with many gnome dependencies?

Sure, you can. Please note that you need to configure global hotkeys manually (the option in Shutter's preferences covers only gnome keybindings). You can find instructions for different DEs here:
http://shutter-project.org/faq-help/set-shutter-as-the-default-screenshot-tool/

There are some gnome dependencies (libraries) but that doesn't hurt. You can have a look at the dependencies here (package names may differ):
http://shutter-project.org/downloads/dependencies/

In Fedora you don't need to start from scratch if you want to give LXDE a try. You can also install LXDE packages after installation using yum or the package manager of your choice.

To install LXDE in Fedora using yum, execute the following as root:

   1. Open a terminal (shell).
   2. Install the LXDE group: su -c 'yum install @lxde-desktop'
