How do I start kdenlive on Mac?

Hi,

I have just installed kdenlive on my MAC OSX Snow Leopard, following the step :

Install MacPorts
Follow these guidelines: http://guide.macports.org/index.html#installing

If MacPorts is already installed on your computer, upgrade installed ports:
%% sudo port -d selfupdate
%% sudo port -u upgrade outdated

Install Kdenlive
Run the following command:
%% sudo port install kdenlive

It has taken a lonnnng time but it seems to be done. My problem is in the subject.
Could you please answer to these two both questions :

Is there some specific command lines to execute to launch/start kdenlive?
Is it possible to just have a shortcut on my applications folder to start kdenlive?

When i launch opt/local/bin/kdenlive i have "drkonqi a quitté de manière imprévu" (crashed)

Thank you very much!

Hopefully you followed the directions to startup dbus properly and set the permissions on the KDE preferences folders. Then, in a terminal:
open -a kded4
open -a kdenlive

I put Kdenlive in my dock by dragging /opt/local/bin/kdenlive.app to it. In Finder, choose Go to Folder from the Go menu, locate it and drag it.

Hello,

I installed kdenlive in the same manner as mentioned above.

It starts, then immediately crashes. I don't know what to do: this is my first time using terminal so troubleshooting is beyond me.

Help?

Hi,

I've the same problem. I have just installed kdenlive on my MAC OSX Leopard, following the step :

Install MacPorts
Follow these guidelines: http://guide.macports.org/index.html#installing

If MacPorts is already installed on your computer, upgrade installed ports:
%% sudo port -d selfupdate
%% sudo port -u upgrade outdated

Install Kdenlive
Run the following command:
%% sudo port install kdenlive
%% sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE
%% sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
%% sudo chown $USER /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
%% launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
% open -a kdeinit4
%% open -a kdenlive

All's right, until I type the last command line. Drkonqi and Kdenlive are launched (their icons - a film and a ladybug - appear in the dock) the they crash... I tried to type the last two command lines with the X11 terminal, it ain't change anything...

If i type %% open -a kded4
it answers me :
LSOpenFromURLSpec() failed with error -10810.

What to do? Sure, I have an Ubuntu session on my Macbook but it's too bad it doesn't work on Mac OS...

JM Pouré, au secours !

Try opening up the Console and view the system log immediate after attempting to open kdenlive and see what the error message says. I have no idea if this is an issue for you but I had my XQuartz break on me after a security update and wasn't able to open kdenlive until I updated X11/XQuartz.

Sometimes kded4 does not start because dbus-system does not run properly immediately after install or upgrade even when you follow the directions. You can use ps in the terminal or Activity Monitor to see if it is running. Myself and another have found that after a reboot dbus-system is running properly as well as kde4 (after running kdeinit4, if needed). I do not know yet why a reboot was required, but please try that.

Thank you for the responses!

I ran console as suggested, but the errors meant nothing to me. I was able, however, to snag a friend to whom this stuff makes sense, and we found that I didn't properly run the "chown" command, so the program didn't have the proper permissions to run in my user account.

So far, she goes!

Can't wait to learn how to use this software.

Hi,
I tried to install Kdenlive and followed these steps:

"Install MacPorts

Run the following command:
% sudo port install kdenlive
"

But when I tried to install Kdenlive this message appeared
"-bash: fg: %sudo: no such job"

Can anyone please tell me why did this happen and how can I fix it?
Thank you

PD: This is the first time I've ver tried to use Terminal so basically my knowledge on this subject is null
