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 ?

At here

From the Ubuntu repositories: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=kdenlive&searchon=names&suite=oneiric&section=all

Package version is 0.8

Browsing to the Kdenlive home: http://www.kdenlive.org/

Binary section for Ubuntu: http://www.kdenlive.org/user-manual/downloading-and-installing-kdenlive/pre-compiled-packages/ubuntu-packages

They are recommending Sunab's PPA.

That is: https://launchpad.net/~sunab -> https://launchpad.net/~sunab/+archive/kdenlive-release

Adding the ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release


[sudo] password for ...:

Launching the Kdenlive...

enter image description here

Seems to work.

Edit - the libmlt++3/libmlt4/libmlt-data/melt version

The kdenlive, version:, 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
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.

Other options

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:

avidemux-qt: http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric-updates/avidemux-qt

Description: a free video editor - QT version

Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities. . This package contains the QT4 version.

There is also a GTK version - package: avidemux.

Few editors available from the Ubuntu repositories:
