Kdenlive is a the most famous video editors of the GNU / Linux world. It is one of the tools that come standard on the KDE desktop but also it can be installed even if you have another desktop like Unity of Ubuntu.
Whether through Kubuntu or through any other distribution, the truth is that Kdenlive it usually takes time to update in the official repositories, Something that makes many take to receive the latest news from the tool or bug fix that the program still has.
This problem can be solved using any of the 03:00 repositories that the Kdenlive project has skills and that we can use in our Ubuntu. Here is the address of the three repositories and their functions.
- ppa: Kdenlive / Kdenlive-master. This is the development repository. In him we will find the main news which has the project but its operation it is unstable and has not been tested so it could give serious problems in the operation of the program.
- ppa: Kdenlive / Kdenlive-testing. This repository has a misleading name because although it has the name of testing, in this repository you can find the latest tested and the operation has been frozen, so that after several weeks frozen will go to the stable repository.
- ppa: Kdenlive / Kdenlive-stable. This repository has the latest stable version of Kdenlive, a repository where we will find the last of Kdenlive which does not have to be the same as we have in Ubuntu or Kubuntu, it is more likely to be the older version of the Ubuntu repository.
How to have these Kdenlive repositories on Ubuntu
Any of these repositories can be used as we said at the beginning. To do this we just need to open a terminal and write the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-XXX
Where the “XXX” we will put the name of the repository we want to install. The most common is to put “stable” but if you prefer or have a testing system, you can opt for other deposits such as testing or master which do you prefer?
