Re: 64 bit mint 18.2: Avidemux 2.6 install always missing plugins

Try this: If you use Synaptic Package Manager to install it, click the avidemux program > Mark for Installation, then right click it again and choose the "Recommended" and "Suggested" fly out menus, and install ALL that are listed . . :) That is good advice for previous editions...
