No, you will get the version that's in the repositories, which may or may not be the latest version.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Unless of course you've set up a different repository. :P

This is what they say on their download page about the latest verion for Ubuntu/Mint/Elementary:
It is recommended to download the AppImage version until the release of Ubuntu 18.04.
https://kdenlive.org/download/
Latest stable AppImage (17.12.0) is available here:
https://files.kde.org/kdenlive/release/ ... mirrorlist.

To install, just download the file and make it executable, ( chmod +x ) in a terminal, then run it.

Hi "charroo",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Need to know which edition and version of Linux Mint you are currently using?

The Linux Mint repositories do not have the current or latest version of the wonderful Kdenlive video editor.

Kdenlive developers recommend using their AppImage package. For Linux Mint 17.x users the AppImage option is the only way to get to use the newer versions of Kdenlive. They also have "flatpak" and "snap" install options too. And, Kdenlive has a fair amount of recommended and suggested packages, so I recommend searching the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" for Kdenlive, right-click it, and install all of those too.

There is a PPA available for Linux Mint 18.x users to install and keep Kdenlive updated.

Kdenlive release : “Kdenlive” team
https://launchpad.net/~kdenlive/+archiv ... ive-stable

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-stable

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt install kdenlive frei0r-plugins

Hope this helps ...

The reason they are most likely recommending the appimage until ubuntu 18.04 /Mint 19.x is because it requires dependencies that may not be available in 16.04.x /Mint 18.x so I would download and use the appimage they work great in mint.

I have LM 17.3. I tried to add the Kdenlive repository but I get an error:

Code: Select all

smarc@marc-desktop:~ > sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-stable
'This PPA does not support trusty'
Cannot add PPA: ''This PPA does not support trusty''.
What should I do?

Hi "oligalma",

As was already stated, for Linux Mint 17.x or 18.x, Download their AppImage file, check permissions to run it (right-click the AppImage file, select permission tab, check executable, apply, ok. Then, double-click the AppImage file to run it. The PPA is for Linux Mint 18.x only.

Software packaged as AppImage files require the "fuse" package to be installed before running them, which is usually already installed in Linux Mint. If "fuse" is not installed, run the command below, or search for "fuse" in the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" and install it that way.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install fuse
Hope this helps ...

Hi charroo,
You can read about AppImage here:
https://appimage.org/
The AppImage format is a format for packaging applications in a way that allows them to run on a variety of different target systems (base operating systems, distributions) without further modification.

Applications packaged as an AppImage can run on many distributions (including Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, CentOS, elementaryOS, Linux Mint, and others)

One app = one file = super simple for users: just download one AppImage file, make it executable, and run

No unpacking or installation necessary

No root needed

No system libraries changed

Works out of the box, no installation of runtimes needed
