I am trying to install kdenlive 0.9.10 on ubuntu 14.04 (with gnome desktop).

I followed the instructions from the official website (https://kdenlive.org/download-ubuntu). But no success.

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

I have searched around and many others have the same problem, but no solution until now.

The error I am geting is:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: kdenlive : Depends: libnepomuk4 (>= 4:4.5.85) but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

However, I have checked and there is no broken packages in my system. Further, if I try to install the libnepomuk4, I also get errors.

The same problem is reported in this forum: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=269&t=122406

Thanks in advance. I apreciate any suggestion.


I Have solved this problem using aptitude.

sudo aptitude install kdenlive

Depending on your systems and kde version and configuration, this command gives you possible solutions.

It worked for me.
