Although I know version .5 is available in the next version of Ubuntu (Gutsy, 7.10) which is due out in two weeks, I'd like to try to install version .5 in Feisty now.
There are two reasons: one is that I have a video editing project that I would like to complete on October 14th, which is before Gutsy is set to release.
The other reason is that version .4 has a problem with project configuration settings which I'm hoping is resolved in version .5.
(The problem is described here: http://www.kdenlive.org/bbforum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=274)
I tried to install the repository for Feisty, but get this error:
http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb/dists/feisty/Release: Unable to find expected entry 3v1n0|/source/Sources in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
I then tried to install from source as per the instructions here: http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/kdenlive and have been stopped at every turn by compile errors.
When trying to make Kdenlive, it says:
/home/dave/kdenlive/kdenlive/trackviewvideobackgrounddecorator.cpp:122: note: neither the destructor nor the class-specific operator delete will be called, even if they are declared when the class is defined. /home/dave/kdenlive/kdenlive/trackviewvideobackgrounddecorator.cpp:98: warning: unused variable ‘drawWidth’ Error creating ./kdenlive/trackviewvideobackgrounddecorator.o. Exit status 1.
I tried the script provided here: http://www.kdenlive.org/bbforum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=100, but it dies saying:
cd: 166: can't cd to ffmpeg
I have, many times, installed ffmpeg and ffmpeg related devolpment files, so I'm not sure why it can't "cd" to it.
Anyway, is it possible to get version .5 on Feisty, and if so, which set of instructions should I be following?
Thank you for any advice.
