Fatal Error

Hi all,

I am running lucid 10.04 and I have tried both upgrading and installing 0.8 with the new sunab. I seem to get the same, "Fatal Error - MLT's SDL module not found, Please check your MLT install. Kdenlive will not work until this issue is fixed". I have deleted the config file in .kde/share/config file and opened Kdenlive again with no luck, same error. Any ideas folks.


how did you make previous installs. Hand compilation, scripted compilation, packages?


I just installed it from the Ubuntu repositories with the package manager. 0.7 installs fine that way. When I add the ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release and update to install new or upgrade I get that fatal error. :(

Tested here in a fresh install of 10.04 (virtual machine).

-> installed from official repositories
-> upgraded to 0.8 with my ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release

No problems found.

Your problem reminds me an old bug report http://www.kdenlive.org/mantis/view.php?id=913
What's the frei0r-plugins version installed on your system?
What is the output of this command in a terminal?
melt -version

My output is:

MLT melt 0.7.0
Copyright (C) 2002-2011 Ushodaya Enterprises Limited

This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

frei0r-plugins is 1.3.0

I am experiencing the same error.

Installed Ubuntu 10.04, applied all updates and upgraded to 10.10.
Then I followed the instructions at http://www.mltframework.org/twiki/bin/view/MLT/BuildScripts

The build script completes and reports that everything was successful.

When I run start-kdenlive, I get an alert stating "Cannot find your MLT profiles, please give path". I point it to "/home/erik/kdenlive/20110526/share/mlt/profiles" or "/home/erik/Downloads/mlt-0.7.2/profiles/", whic are the only two places I find the profiles and the I get the same fatal error.

I started getting this problem in the last week. I don't know why.
I've removed all the video programs and mlt's from everywhere in my system - restarted and reloaded kdenlive from scratch. Same problem.

Any brilliant ideas will be appreciated. I'm relying on kdenlive for a job. Help!
