Troubleshooting

If you see the following error:

(mugshot:22748): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'apps.mugshot' is not installed

Be sure to copy data/glib-2.0/schemas/apps.mugshot.gschema.xml to either:

  • /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, or
  • /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas

and run glib-compile-schemas on that directory before running Mugshot.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
