No Event for Checking that the CURRENT User is the One Running App?

If "user1" is running Shutter and switches to "user2", how do I prevent shutter from activating while in "user2"?

I expect shutter to pause its behavior and reset when "user1" is again selected...

You can't, at least not with the current versions of Shutter.

User sessions run in parallel and in isolation from each other, in the user space. If you switch users from user A to user B, the apps that user A is running will not be killed or paused, they will continue to run in the background. That is a standard behavior in all multi-user operation systems.

It is possible to implement a feature in Shutter that will pause itself if the user session is switched to a different user, but there is currently no plan to implement such feature.

Thanks for the response, I will look at alternative products to see if they handle this correctly.
