GNU/Linux Packages


For the latest stable version:

sudo pacman -S kdenlive


Debian-testing and Debian-unstable offer the latest version:

Unfortunately users of Debian stable are still stuck with 0.9.10 which is unsoppurted.


Fedora users can download latest version from United RPMS.


Gentoo offers ebuilds for latest Kdenlive version:

emerge kdenlive


OpenSuse Leap 42.1 and Tumbleweed offer the latest version:

zypper install kdenlive5

Ubuntu | LinuxMint

For Ubuntu >= 15.04 and other *buntu based distros like LinuxMint you can download latest Kdenlive from our official PPA’s:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kdenlive

Note: you can easily remove our PPA and revert back to official distro package using:
sudo ppa-purge ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-stable

Compiling and Installing

Most distributions ship Kdenlive packages. However, Kdenlive and its core libraries like MLT are evolving quickly and distribution packages are not always available for the latest version.

Check our documentation if your distribution is not in the list on the left for instructions on how to compile and install manually:

Cross distro packages

Several packaging formats provide an easy one click install system. We are currently working on it and hope to provide AppImage packages compatible with most GNU/Linux distributions.


As a result of Google’s Summer of Code 2016, experimental Windows build should hopefully be available before the end of 2016.


Kdenlive and MLT can compile and run under Mac OS X. Packages are available from the MacPorts project, unfortunately they are outdated.
