@mondstern Similar to any other translation contribution:

2. If your Weblet account is connected to your GitHub account, will generate a commit on on your behalf

These mean that your contribution will be in the git history and the Weblet history.

@marathon Any bug report can potentially help us address one more issue and make Flameshot a better tool and therefore make thousands of peopleโ€™s lives one tiny bit easier. ๐Ÿฆพ

@ahangarha there were some issues that was fixed in two separate PRs. I personally have checked Persian and I didnโ€™t see any issues. Make sure you to test artifacts from master or compile from source or update the AUR (which compiles from source).

If you see any issues or have some suggestions, we will be glad to know it and try to fix it ๐Ÿค—

@marathon I donโ€™t understand what you mean by the โ€œgameโ€. Flameshot is a screenshot and annotation tool.

We officially provide the .deb and .rpm in addition to Snap, Flatpak and AppImage all of which are accessible through our release page. The Snap in the snapcraft, Flatpak in the Flathub, and flameshot-git AUR is also maintained by us.

@marathon Even our old versions work on Wayland, but of course there is always room for improvement. You can see all wayland-related open issues on our GitHub:


We have ironed out many Wayland compatibility issues and we will keep working on solving the current issues.

Flameshot is a Libre and OpenSource community-driven software, so in case you want to get your hands dirty and have few minutes to spare, any contribution is most welcome ๐Ÿค—

We are planning to have a release of our next stable version ๐ŸŽ‰ , so it would be amazing if we can have some of the translations completed.

Some of the languages that need some extra love are (in no specific order):
Swedish ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช , Greek ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท , Georgian ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช , Norwegian ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด , Czech ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ , Indonesian ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ , and Spanish ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ

The translation can be easily done in the following website and you don't need to know any programming to contribute to Flameshot:

Boosting is appreciated.

@mufle thanks for the suggestion, please post your future suggestions in the github issue section.

Regarding this specific feature request, it is duplicate of github.com/flameshot-org/flame but @Mehrad posted a easy solution in github.com/flameshot-org/flame

Hi, of course, any contribution is welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š we do our translation via Weblet which you can find in the following link:


Did you know that you can modify (move, recolor, ...) the annotations in after they have been drawn? This eliminates the need to undo and help you to focus more on the message you want to convey with the screenshot.

You can even use this during your Zoom/Jitsi presentations while you have shared your screen. This makes the presentations more dynamic and fluid ๐Ÿ˜Ž

@sysbee we are very happy to hear that. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Because donโ€™t have any form of telemetry implemented (intentional and conscious decision), we donโ€™t know how large out user-base is and how many of them are in what platform (Linux, MacOS, Windows). Therefore it is awesome to hear from the users what their experiences are.

We are trying to be very responsive on out GitHub repo (and from now on also on Mastodon) and increase to increase outreach and contact with the community.
