My current version of Kdenlive is 15.12.3, I installed it with apt-get right from the repository. However, I need version 16.12 or above in order to use the rotoscoping feature.
To this point, I have only installed software from the standard repository with apt-get, but there is only one version. So I want to install it manually from source, I am unsure how to make it, I read I need to know how the program make works, how to use the program tar to unzip files, chmod to make it excutable and I have to get the dependencies myself.
So, to advance, I would like to make at least the first step and get the necessary dependencies, but I do not know how to look them up for this specific version of this program.
Is there a kind of telephone book where to each version of a programm the necessary dependencies are listed or how do you usually retrieve this info?
