I wrote a tool to automate taking screenshots of widgets!

It took me a couple of days, but with the compositor running in headless mode, screenshots can even be taken from CI! No more fiddling with a VM and spending hours in GIMP to make screenshots in various languages for Metadata Cleaner's help pages.

It was also the opportunity to start using -rs, the GTK Rust bindings.

Urgh, I just discovered some users are apparently facing a crash with one of my app. The problem is that they left a comment in their software center that I couldn't see because I use a different language, and that I have no way to get in touch with them in order to have more information about their issue :/

Flatpaking games from GOG. Some work fine, some insist on not using standard config, data and temp directories and instead try to write files next to the executables… But this place is read-only in Flatpak.
