How to install shutter in Linux Mint 20

Shutter is a great screenshot application on linux for me. It can take screenshot, it can edit picture, it is like a complete package. Sadly. the development of this great software has been stalled. Shutter is not available through official repository, so we have to use an unofficial ppa to install it. Do not worry, the steps are very simple.

First and foremost, open your trusty terminal.

Install the unofficial ppa
$ sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:linuxuprising/shutter

Update the apt database
$ sudo apt update

Install shutter
$ sudo apt install shutter -y

That's it, just in 3 simple steps, you are good to go in using shutter. Happy shuttering.
