GNU/Linux distributions

The Appimage will work on most GNU/Linux distributions. After having downloaded the file, you have to make it executable (right click and in the permissions set “Allow executing file as program” or similar): you can then launch it by double-clicking on it.
If you’re using Ubuntu or a derivative and prefer to use native packages, you can add our PPA to your repositories.

Windows

Do not use the Kdenlive uninstall.exe utility installed before 10-July-2019, simply delete the installed files and folders manually. More details see here.

Windows standalone version: Double click the self-extracting exe (not an installer, does not need admin rights to extract). To start Kdenlive double click Kdenlive.exe in the “bin” folder.

First time use of Kdenlive: Please start Kdenlive twice. This issue should be solved with Windows version 19.04.2-6

 

Corrupted Kdenlive GUI. Please follow these steps to solve the issue.

 

There are still known issues.

Mac OSX

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and MLT can compile and run under Mac OS X. Packages are available from the MacPorts project, unfortunately they are outdated.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

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 for instructions on how to compile and install manually.
