How To Install Flameshot on Fedora 39

Install Flameshot on Fedora 39

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Flameshot on Fedora 39. Flameshot is a powerful, open-source screenshot tool available for Linux, Mac, and Windows. It offers a range of features, including in-app screenshot editing, customizable appearance, and the ability to upload screenshots to Imgur.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Flameshot screenshot tool on a Fedora 39.


Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora 39 provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download Flameshot and its dependencies.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
