Until they get perl bindings for app indicator, you can whitelist Shutter systray as per the one-line command posted in this question,
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "$(gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist | sed -e "s/]$/, 'shutter']/")"
GUI Editor method
Run Command Alt+F2 and type
desktop => unity => panel
Add the text
,'shutter'to the end of the list (inside the square bracket).
Close dconf-editor and restart Unity (Run Command Alt+F2 and type
Shutter doesn't have an indicator because there are no indicator bindings for Perl.
Instead I keep shutter on my launcher and just use the quicklists to do take fast screenshots:
Andrei from WebUpd8 has written an application indicator for Shutter. It isn't perfect, but you should find it satisfactory. It works in 11.04 and 11.10.
To install it:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indicator-shutter
ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8to your software sources.
- Refresh the sources.
Install indicator-shutter <--- by clicking on this icon or running
sudo apt-get install indicator-shutter
Instructions taken from here.
There is - at least - an official solution with Shutter 0.89, available in Shutter PPA.
To get the official Shutter indicator, you will need to add and upgrade/install from the official stable Shutter PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install shutter

I had to install the following additional packages before shutter would appear in the launcher. Even then, it disappears without warning, so you must lock it to the launcher as soon as the app is up:
sudo apt-get install libnet-dropbox-api-perl # Dropbox support sudo apt-get install libnet-dbus-glib-perl # UbuntuOne required?
