Openshot stopped working on my friend's laptop. Running it in a terminal produces this. I suspect a python library it needs was removed.

------------------------- ERROR 1 ------------------------------
Failed to import 'from openshot import main'
Error Message: cannot import name main
----------------------------------------------------------------


------------------------- ERROR 2 ------------------------------
Failed to import 'from openshot.openshot import main'
Error Message: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'set_cursor'
----------------------------------------------------------------

Tried:

  • Reinstalling openshot
  • Searching for the error reveals this bug, but I don't have the locale problem.

Try renaming the openshot config folder and restarting openshot i.e.

mv ~/.openshot ~/.openshot_backup
openshot

N.B. looking at the OpenShot forums - this solution is frequently quoted for these short of python issue.

I had the same problem, all was working fine but suddenly openshot stop functioning: I've found a solution: First i reinstalled ffmpeg... Then i uninstalled openshot, i cleaned up after with ubuntu tweak... after that i manually delete the folder /.openshot in my persolnal files (use Crlt H, to see the hidden files)... Rebooted my pc... Finally i reinstallled openshot...

And it worked just fine ... :D
