[Solved] drkonqi quit unexpectedly

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,3
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
Snow Leopard 10.6.8

I'm new to all of this and can't figure out where to go from here.
I think I followed all the download instructions as directed.

However: sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE
chown: /var/root/Library/Preferences/KDE: No such file or directory

Here is my console information:

not clear to me what yoy are tying to do. Install, Capture, edit ?

I can't start kdenlive, because it launches along with drkonqi which crashes before it opens.
I copied the information from Console that comes up when i try to launch.
I also included the error in the first post installation step from Terminal.
I'd like to figure out how fix this problem and launch kdenlive.

thanks.

Well getting kdenlive to run on a mac is - as they say - not for the faint hearted.

Have you looked at this thread?

Quote:
Kdenlive and MLT can compile and run under Mac OS X. Packages are available from the MacPorts project.

MacPorts is a source-based system - there is not a binary app bundle for Kdenlive. Therefore, Kdenlive and all of its numerous dependencies including multimedia libraries, KDE, and Qt must be compiled. This can take a long time and much disk space! Furthermore, it is not unusual for something not to build correctly;

" it is definitely not something for the novice, impatient, or "faint of heart."

This post is recent http://www.kdenlive.org/forum/feedback-about-kdenlive-mac-os-x?page=3#co... showing someone trying to to the mac instal. You could follow that thread and see how it goes.

Thanks!

I followed seanedunn's method http://kdenlive.org/forum/feedback-about-kdenlive-mac-os-x?page=2#commen... and Kdenlive has launched.

That is great - so it still can be done on the Mac !
