Kdenlive 0.8.2 crash on startup

I can't start up Kdenlive after upgrading to 0.8.2. The application crashes on startup and reloading doesn't work either.

Here's some info:

Forums:

Seems like a problem with your MLT. You need MLT 0.7.6 for Kdenlive 0.8.2. Make sure you don't have an older version installed.

I have libmlt4, libmlt++3 and libmlt-dbg installed as the 0.7.6 version, but the libmlt-data is the 1:0.6.2-0.0 version. That's what it says on Synaptic.

Do you think that's the problem?

I tried to load Kdenlive again and it now says this:

Anyone have a suggestion? I'm hoping to fix this asap.

Hi,

a fix has been committed in the git repo. A bugfix release is expected soon.

Awesome! Thanks sunab, I can't wait.

Will it come through Synaptic if I have your ppa launchpad thing set up?

hey there smeefer. yes, it should come from his PPA by issuing an update and then an upgrade of your packages. What PPA u using? if it's his kdenlive-stable PPA then try out his experimental svn PPA. He's been updating from git a lot lately and many bugs are fixed BUT obviously since it's bleeding edge you may experience new issues. It's so easy to go back and forth though IMO. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with FFMPEG from Ubuntu's repo's and x264 I believe I am getting from Medibuntu repo's so that I can encode in mp4 with x264 and aac audio. Good luck

Thanks! I just had the kdenlive-release ppa on my update manager. I just added kdenlive-svn and got a new upgrade. Installing now...

Just tried to open Kdenlive, but it's still crashing on me:

Another upgrade through kdenlive-svn and I still have the same problems. I put it on the mantis bug tracker.
