I am using Kubuntu 11.10 (32-bit). I tried to install KDenLive in it. For installing KDenLive, I added the third party repository to get the latest version of the software . After installing its giving an error to upgrade MLT Module to version 0.7. Please tell me how to upgrade MLT Module. Is there any other video editing program that lets me cut a part of the video.
Could you tell how and from where did you try to install the Kdenlive ?
From the Ubuntu repositories: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=kdenlive&searchon=names&suite=oneiric§ion=all
Package version is 0.8
Browsing to the Kdenlive home: http://www.kdenlive.org/
They are recommending Sunab's PPA.
Adding the ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release

sudo apt-get install kdenlive

Launching the Kdenlive...
Seems to work.
Edit - the libmlt++3/libmlt4/libmlt-data/melt version
The kdenlive, version: 0.8.2.1-0ubuntu0~sunab~oneiric1, is depending the libmlt++3/libmlt4/libmlt-data/melt, without any package version restrictions.
apt-cache show kdenlive Package: kdenlive Priority: optional Section: video Installed-Size: 4144 Maintainer: Olivier Banus <****> Architecture: i386 Version: 0.8.2.1-0ubuntu0~sunab~oneiric1 ... Depends: ..., libmlt++3, libmlt4, ..., melt, libmlt-data, ...
If you have those installed then those won't be upgraded with the install kdenlive.
To fix this, run the upgrade:
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
It should upgrade those packages to the latest version from the Sunab's PPA.
Is there any other video editing program that lets me cut a part of the video.
Yes there are many video editing programs. I'm using the Avidemux.
It is available from the Ubuntu repositories:
