I have some problems installing cinelerra on my Ubuntu 11.10. I tried to follow some guides on the internet but none of them worked.

How do I install it?

I am the maintainer of the Cinelerra ppa. After some compilation issues, cinelerra is finally available for oneiric (and precise):

If you are asking for community version of Cinelerra, there is a PPA as @Brett Howard said. It worked on my current system. Just used these:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cinelerra-ppa/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinelerra

Just updating:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cinelerra-ppa/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinelerra-cv

What's the difference between the community version of cinelerra and the standard version? Is there a difference? –  Seanny123 Dec 6 '14 at 18:15
You can read this for an explanation of CE: cinelerra.org/docs/cinelerra_cv_manual_en.html#SEC3 –  heartsmagic Dec 6 '14 at 22:05

There is a PPA that is supposed to help with this but currently its broken for Oneiric users. I've asked if they have information on when they feel they might be able to fix this as its also of interest to myself. Lets hope for soon!

Goto http://www.g-raffa.eu/Cinelerra/HOWTO/installation.html, this install worked on Ubuntu Studio 11.04 (licid)
