[SOLVED] Installing shotcut manually on LM19 XFCE to avoid flatpak bloatware

Another one of these evil bloated flatpaks busted!

Download shotcut portable from their website (https://shotcut.org/download/) and extract it.
Place the Shotcut/ dir under /usr/local/bin/
Copy the file /usr/local/bin/Shotcut/Shotcut.desktop to /usr/share/applications/
vim Shotcut.desktop
Edit the Exec line to resemble: Exec=/usr/local/bin/Shotcut/Shotcut.app/shotcut

Now shotcut works from your menu.
