Not exactly sure what karma to give. The app works just fine when started from CLI using flameshot gui. However, when launching from the starter icon within Gnome nothing happens, nothing appear.

This is what I get in the journal:

flameshot[8320]: QSocketNotifier: Can only be used with threads started with QThread
systemd[7227]: app-gnome-flameshot-8320.scope: Succeeded.

excerpt from my flameshot.desktop file from /usr/share/applications:

Exec=flameshot
Icon=flameshot
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Graphics;
StartupNotify=false
Actions=Configure;Capture;Launcher;
X-DBUS-StartupType=Unique
X-DBUS-ServiceName=org.flameshot.Flameshot
X-KDE-DBUS-Restricted-Interfaces=org_kde_kwin_effect-screenshot

Is the EXEC supposed to be flameshot gui

However, when launching from the starter icon within Gnome nothing happens, nothing appear.

It starts in tray mode by default. On Gnome you must install legacy tray support extension. This not a bug.

Legacy Tray support? I thought that has been removed long time ago. Maybe there is a way to bring it back with some sort of extension.

So, if additional software is required to run flameshot as is, it should be a dependency.

Any way, this is a bug. We can't ship software that doesn't work out of the box.

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

Ask Gnome developers why they decided to remove tray support. If you treat this as a bug, it should be filled to Gnome Shell, not Flameshot. In DE with tray support it works absolutely fine.

If you want tray icon support in Gnome, you must install AppIndicator Support extension.

Ask Gnome developers why they decided to remove tray support. If you treat this as a bug, it should be filled to Gnome >Shell, not Flameshot. This discussion was intensively held three or four years ago. The decision was to remove the tray - nothing we need to question here.

The solutions I see:

  • package the extension and include it as dependency of flameshot, or
  • start it with flameshot gui, which works perfectly fine
  • maybe create a second .desktop file that says "Flameshot GUI" (no tray version)

I don't think it can be an option to package a software that does not even start on Fedora's default DE...

It already has desktop actions: https://github.com/flameshot-org/flameshot/blob/master/docs/desktopEntry/package/flameshot.desktop#L53

Most of Gnome users install extensions from Gnome Extensions website. If I will add a dependency on the packaged version, they will conflict with each other.

Most of applications with system tray icon support cannot show it in Gnome now. Such bugs need to be filled to the Gnome Shell itself.

It already has desktop actions: https://github.com/flameshot-org/flameshot/blob/master/docs/desktopEntry/package/flameshot.desktop#L53 Yeah, but desktop actions are not well known and not so intuitive. My personal opition is that when you standard-click an application in Gnome it has to show up.

I am glad flameshot is working under wayland now! Thanks for the packaging effort!!

This update can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes
