A solution to a problem I had for months with ‘Whatsapp for linux’

This is more like a solution to a problem I had for months with ‘Whatsapp for linux’ package and screenshots in clipboard. I hope this might be helpful to someone :sweat_smile: .
If you can’t paste a screenshot taken in spectacle app there is a workaround, just uninstall the ‘Whatsapp for linux’ package and install ‘Whatsapp-web-jak’ package.
Thank you for your time

Another option would be to use Ferdi. (There’s an .Appimage, so you don’t have to use the AUR version if you don’t want to.)

And yet another option would be to use Flameshot and not have any screenshots copied to the clipboard by default.

Now, I know this wouldn’t work for everyone, but it does for me.

BTW: Thanks for sharing.
