I've tried to install kdenlive from the terminal by typing:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kdenlive

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 kdenlive : Depends: kdenlive-data (= 0.9.2-0ubuntu0~sunab~precise2) but 0.9.3+git20120701.53f9c1b9-0ubuntu0~sunab~oneiric1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Can anyone help, please?

(It worked perfectly before I updated to the new Ubuntu)

  • Are you on oneiric or precise ? – Postadelmaga Aug 17 '12 at 18:27
  • It is problem with packaging. File a bug or message the owner of the ppa. – Panther Aug 17 '12 at 18:56
  • @Postadelmaga Have no idea. How do I find out? Sorry for the ignorance. :D – Raluca Aug 17 '12 at 22:14
  • @bodhi.zazen Have no idea how to do any of those. Please help me out with details... – Raluca Aug 17 '12 at 22:16

The problem must be that you are on Ubuntu 12.04 and added the personal package archive for Ubuntu 11.10. Or the PPA doesn't work properly.

The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to remove the repository. Kdenlive installs fine without it.
In terminal you can do it with the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release
Then you can proceed with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kdenlive
