OpenShot
« on: November 30, 2012, 07:13:14 pm »

I want to install the OpenShot video editor.
In the VL repositories I see:
OpenShot 1.4.2
OpenShot 1.4.3

It needs the Melt program and we have:
mlt 0.6.2
mlt 0.7.2
mlt 0.7.8

I'm running VL 7.0 Gold; which combination is best?!

Thanks

Hi ronsking,

Installing the most recent Openshot is your best choice. Version 1.4.3.
Just select that and gslapt should take care of the rest.
After you click execute gslapt will let you see the packages it is going to install if you click on the arrow beside "Packages to be installed"
Similarly, you can see what will be upgraded.

I installed OpenShot 1.4.3 and it didn't open.
I tried from the terminal and got this:

Code: [Select]
------------------------- ERROR 1 ------------------------------
Failed to import 'from openshot import main'
Error Message: cannot import name main
----------------------------------------------------------------

** (process:22423): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GMountMountFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

** (process:22423): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GDriveStartFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

** (process:22423): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GSocketMsgFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

   OpenShot (version 1.4.3)

------------------------- ERROR 2 ------------------------------
Failed to import 'from openshot.openshot import main'
Error Message: No module named xdg.IconTheme
----------------------------------------------------------------

OpenShot has failed to import some of the Python files or libraries
required for our application to run.  Here are some trouble shooting
tips:

Tip 1) Check if MLT can be successfully imported in Python.  Run the
 following commands, and see if any errors are displayed.  If you get
 an error, you need to investigate the correct way to install MLT.
 NOTE:  Do not type the $ or >> characters in the examples below.

       $ python
       >> import mlt
       >> mlt.Factory().init()

Tip 2) If MLT is working from the first example, then the next tip is
 to look at the above error messages very closely, and google for more
 help.  It's likely the problem is already reported, and maybe there is
 a simple work-around.  Also, you can search for bugs or report a new
 bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/openshot.  Good luck!

(nice it wishes me luck)

I followed the instructions to try mlt from python and got this:

Code: [Select]
$ python
Python 2.7.2 (default, Jun 15 2011, 17:01:21)
[GCC 4.5.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import mlt
>>> mlt.Factory().init()
<mlt.Repository; proxy of <Swig Object of type 'Mlt::Repository *' at 0xb7341950> >

No errors I guess.

Should I try a lower version of OpenShot?

Try installing pyxdg.

I just installed openshot from the repositories (updated with testing loaded) and it opens fine.

I have no trouble here either. 
Please try the pyxdg suggestion of rbistolfi's.  Maybe even uninstall some of the components and install again, starting with pyxdg.

Out side of that I can not duplicate.
