0.7.8 won't open in Ubuntu 10.10

Hi, I've recently started using Ubuntu 10.10, switched from Mandriva, and can't get Kdenlive to start.Kdenlive was working fine under Mandriva so my hardware is up to the job.
I installed from the repository recommended on the Kdenlive page.
When I try to start the wizard appears then disappears after a second and I get this error message.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

The PID varies slightly sometimes, last time it was 4227 rather than 4260.

Executable: kdenlive PID: 4260 Signal: 11 (Segmentation fault)

Running from terminal I get this output.

Forums:

looks to me like your ubuntu install is messed up somehow. kdenlive should have write permissions to your home folder.
notice the error, "trying to create local folder /home/andy/.kde/share: Permission denied"
that means that kdenlive isn't able to write to that directory.

My home folder's permissions are as follows if this will help you.

drwxr-xr-x 53 daniel daniel 4096 2010-09-28 08:13 daniel

and then within my home folder are these 2 folders

drwx------ 5 daniel daniel 4096 2010-10-14 06:25 .kde
drwxr-xr-x 5 daniel daniel 4096 2009-12-24 11:26 kdenlive
