I'm using Shutter to export screenshots into a folder which is synced with Ubuntu One. Shutter helpfully marks these files as public, and I get a notification (via NotifyOSD) that the file was uploaded and is available at a particular URL.

The issue is that this information is useless because the URL is a random string and Notify doesn't allow interactions, such as copying from a notification.

Is there any way to:

  • copy the URL from the notification, or
  • have Shutter provide that information in a more-accessible way?
