I want enable globe in Shutter for taking screenshots of whole web pages.

globe in Shutter

For enabling globe I need install gnome-web-photo package. I use this command

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-web-photo

I get an error

E: Package 'gnome-web-photo' has no installation candidate
  1. Go to the official download webpage for gnome-web-photo for Ubuntu 16.04.

  2. Select a mirror and download gnome-web-photo_0.10.6-1_amd64.deb

  3. Open the terminal and change directories using cd to the directory that contains the gnome-web-photo_0.10.6-1_amd64.deb file that you downloaded.

  4. Install gnome-web-photo with the following command.

    sudo apt install ./gnome-web-photo_0.10.6-1_amd64.deb

    This command automatically installs gnome-web-photo's dependencies along with the package.

  5. You might need to restart shutter or reboot OS in order to see changes.

  • Also I was need to reboot Ubuntu. – Eric Korolev Oct 9 '18 at 14:51
  • I added sudo reboot to the command in step 4. – karel Oct 10 '18 at 9:22

    why would you add sudo reboot to a command someone is likely going to copy-paste without reading? could at least make it a separate bullet point – rmobis Mar 14 at 15:11

Unfortunately gnome-web-photo has no package in 18.04, as you can see here. To capture and edit screenshots in firefox though you can use this web extension. For chromium you can use this.

  • I'll update my answer with a better extension (if I can find one) as soon as I'm able to, thanks for the heads up – dsSTORM Oct 9 '18 at 20:19
