Kdenlive not working

PLEASE NOTE! I AM NEW TO THE FORUM if this is the wrong spot to place then please direct my accordingly.

I was using Manjaro Cinnamon
I have an nvidia GT-1030 Graphics card

I was using Kdenlive when suddenly it stopped working [ THE AUR VERSION FROM PAC MAN ]
I uninstalled then reinstalled via terminal [ same issue ]
then when I tried to RDD the kdenlive version I just installed via terminal it said KDENLIVE COULD NOT BE FOUND…so I have a version of Kdenlive now on my desktop I can’t get rid of I tried to re install KDENLIVE via pacman and even refreshed the database before attempting a reinstall…same issue…

any idea’s on how I can fix this?

Ok. Let’s go in order:

  • Define “stopped working”. Did you receive any error? What are the symptoms?
  • What is RDD?
  • What command do you run to get “Kdenlive could not found”?
  • Just to clarify… Even if you mention AUR, You are talking about Kdenlive from Manjaro repositories, right?
  • What’s the output of pacman -Qs kdenlive?

Welcome to the forum! :wave:

kdenlive is in the Manjaro extra repository.

Please see:

Stopped working as in it froze
and I had to force stop ot

Rdd is to uninstall without removing dependencies
and I ran the sudo pacman -Rdd kdenlive

and yes

$ -Qs kdenlive?
bash: -Qs: command not found


pacman is a command — -Qs is not. :wink:

23.04.0a hotfix release - Kdenlive:

by Farid Abdelnour | Apr 30, 2023 | News, Uncategorized |

We would like to announce the immediate availability of Kdenlive 23.04.0a fixing an issue where projects would fail to load under certain circumstances. We recommend all users to update.

Just in case, the command you have to run is:

pacman -Qs kdenlive

(No question mark either)

pacman -Qs kdenlive
local/kdenlive 22.12.3-1 (kde-applications kde-multimedia)
A non-linear video editor for Linux using the MLT video framework

Yes I thought I was on unstable but I was on Stable… I have switched over to unstable and I am currently upgrading

Re installing the arch repo version of Kden live now and I will let you know if I run into any more problems thank you :slight_smile:
