I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME Shell 3.28.3 on XOrg Yesterday I switched to 'Ubuntu' at login, which I understand is Wayland and today Shutter (screenshot) would launch but was frozen, but consuming 12% CPU non-stop.

I switched back XOrg but having the same problem.

Shutter can launch, it even updated plugins, but not a signle part of the Shutter UI is responding to clicks.

Any suggestions?


Oops. Found a solution soon after posting. I moved all the files out of where Shutter was storing captures to (47 images) and Shutter is functioning again.

  • Can you explain the location of the files please. – crafter May 16 '19 at 7:22
  • Worked for me as well. My location was /Pictures, but I am not sure if it is the default one or I changed it at some point. – np00 Jun 24 '19 at 14:45

    @crafter sorry for ver late reply. Picture location is in preferences: Edit > Preferences > Main (tab) - the Directory field is where you set the picture location. – klequis Jun 29 '19 at 14:40
