Install shutter – Screenshot Tool in Ubuntu 14.04


Shutter is a feature-rich screenshot program for Linux based operating systems such as Ubuntu. You can take a screenshot of a specific area, window, your whole screen, or even of a website – apply different effects to it, draw on it to highlight points, and then upload to an image hosting site, all within one window. Shutter is free, open-source, and licensed under GPL v3.


Shutter allows you to capture nearly anything on your screen without loosing control over your screenshots (tabbed interface). Here is an overview of what you can do with Shutter:

Capture a Specific Area: This allows you to select an arbitrary region of your screen and capture only those parts you really need. Shutter offers two different tools to do so in order to meet any user’s taste.
Capture your Desktop: Shutter does not only capture all the contents of your desktop (or workspace) – it also supports Multi-monitor settings, e.g. capture the active monitor
Capture a Window: Simply use your mouse to select the window you want to capture. Shutter will highlight the currently select window in an attractive and useful way. It is even possible to simply select a window from a list and capture it right a way.
Capture a Menu or Tooltip: Capturing menus or tooltips is very easy with Shutter. You select one of the options and a (user-defined) countdown starts. During this time you can open the desired menu or let a specific tooltip come up. Shutter will recognize and capture it.
Capture a Website: Shutter uses gnome-web-photo to capture a website without opening a browser window
Add Text, Arrows, Rectangles, Ellipse: The built-in editor allows you to add primitives (e.g. rectangles, lines etc.) , arrows or text to your screenshot. Every shape can be customized by changing the color, fonts and/or the line width.
Censor / Pixelize to Hide Private Data: Don’t want to show sensitive data like IP or e-Mail addresses? Shutter gives you two simple but effective tools to hide this data.
Auto-Increment Shape: When writing a step-by-step guide people often add incremental digits to the screenshots (usually via text). Shutter offers a specific auto-increment shape that can be added to the screenshot. It cannot be easier!
Crop: The built-in editor also includes a tool to crop your screenshot. Simply select a region with your mouse or enter the desired dimensions into the input fields.


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install shutter

Instalation VLC ubuntu


Thanks the power of open-source newer releases of popular apps are routinely back-ported to older releases, then packaged and distributed through PPAs and custom repositories for easy installation.

VLC is no exception. A number of third-party PPAs provide recent builds to Ubuntu 12.04 users. These are not officially endorsed, supported or otherwise backed by the Videolan team and using them is done so at your own risk.

There’s also the question of whether installing ‘newer’ software – and thus less tested, buggier software – on a system that has been designed to be as dependable as possible is something you really want to do.

Parental advice out of the way, if the odd bug wouldn’t signal the end of your world you can grab VLC 2.1.x from the following PPA, maintained by a user called ‘djcj’.

Open a new Terminal and enter the following commands carefully, and type your user password where required.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:djcj/vlc-stable
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc
