This question already has an answer here:
So, I installed 16.04 a few days ago and had to reinstall some apps. One of them was avidemux. After I installed it from the software center I couldn't get it to work properly. It wouldn't even load a video clip before giving me an error message and closing. After trying many command prompts to purge the avidemux files, I still can't get it to reinstall from the software center... Any tips?
