This app only works when I use X11. Output in terminal after taking a screenshot:

(xfce4-screenshooter:23613): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 19:06:00.350: gdk_pixbuf_get_from_surface: assertion 'width > 0 && height > 0' failed

In Gnome under Wayland press print screen for a screenshot.

I ended up using this instead, it's way better: Flameshot

Could you elaborate how it is better with respect to pushing a single button?

ed209, if you look at their GitHub page, you can see that it comes with annotation tools and plus side is that it works in Wayland.

Well, once again, under Wayland everything works with a single button. While on github page I read: "Experimental Gnome Wayland and Plasma Wayland support". That means your mileage may vary. It's a minus side, not a plus.

Haven't had issues so far.
