Topics about compilation and installation of Kdenlive from its source-code tarballs

buildscript binary doesn't find pixmaps


I use the build script to compile Kdenlive successfully on three systems. Only one of them - AVLinux (Debian Squeeze) - displays the pixmaps correctly. My Ubuntu 10.04 and Arch 64 differ in their failure - the Ubuntu build displays some of the pixmaps, e.g. New, Open, Save, but not those for the Add Clip and other entries in the Clip box's pop-up menu. The Arch build fails to find any Kdenlive pixmaps.

There must be a simple solution, I just haven't figured it out yet. Can anyone nudge me in the right direction ?



anything wrong with kdenlive's git?

I'm trying to clone kdenlive's repo, but it just sits there for ages saying 'Cloning into 'kdenlive'...'

$ git clone git://
Cloning into 'kdenlive'...

(SOLVED) Build script fails on frei0r plugins


I'm experimenting with the build script on AV Linux/Debian Squeeze 32bit, If I disable frei0r in the script the build succeeds however with frei0r enabled the script fails with this:

(SOLVED) MLT 0.8.0 fails to see QT4 qimage build libs when present.


This is a copy and paste from an email I sent to the mlt-devel mailing list that for some curious reason got bounced back to me although I have sent messages to the mlt-devel mailing list previously...


I'm trying to build and package MLT 0.8.0 for AV Linux (based on Debian
Squeeze with QT4 4.6.3) however it seems to not recognize the qt4 libs for qimage being
present on the system even when the locations are explicitly indicated in
the configure command. MLT 0.7.8 on the same system configures and finds
the correct qt4 qimage dependencies and builds successfully.

Any help or advice is appreciated, I am trying to finish up the release of
AV Linux 6.0 and am being bitten by the 'render crashes when finished' bug
with the current MLT 0.7.8 and Kdenlive 0.9.2

Sincere thanks, Glen MacArthur - AV Linux Maintainer

Here is the terminal output from the configure stage, the resulting
compilation also fails:

more script failure [SOLVED]


It seems that something has reverted in recent invocations of the build script. I'm unable to complete a successful build on my Debian Squeeze and my Ubuntu 10.04 systems, the script fails here :

I asked friends and searched online forums on what people talk about with regards to effective skin care. They do have some effective inputs but all of them say the same thing – for the anti wrinkle serum or cream to take effect, you would need to apply it daily for at least 2 months. Well, frankly I don’t have that much patience and given my job, I can’t go on an extended leave if I want to go under the knife.

However sometimes you may want to target more than one search tool to increase the chances of your web page being visited by the target audience.
