I've installed mlt 0.5.10 and kdenlive 0.7.8 from the community repos for x86-64. I have to start kdenlive with --mlt-path to get to the config wizard. It asks where the MLT profiles are, I say /usr/share/mlt/profiles, then it says error starting melt, MLTs SDL module not found. Please check youe MLT installation.
What am I supposed to check? I can run melt from the command line, it's in the path so I'm not sure why it cannot be found, and I just don't know about the profiles or the SDL module.
Strange however that I can run kdenlive as root and the wizard finds everything. And I'm using a global bash profile.
I know this has been discussed before, but I have not been successful following the other suggestions, such as removing the frei0r plugins or .kdenliverc, since I don't have this, probably because I have not completed the wizard. At least it is not an Arch related problem. I have removed and reinstalled the applications and all libmlt*
Perhaps someone already has a solution for me?
