Does anyone know how to update the Frei0r video effects plug-in in Ubuntu 12.04?

I can't find a PPA and I need it updated for Openshot.

The gnome-video-effects-frei0r Install gnome-video-effects-frei0r will install version 1.1.22 of the Frei0r plugins in all Ubuntu versions, including 12.04, 12.10, and 13.04.

A newer but possibly unstable version 1.4.0 can be installed from the ppa below (but OpenVC support is unstable and will be disabled for 12.04):

  • ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release
