Oooh, they have finally switched over to mlt7! Awesome, I'll update the package.

Missing dependency: qt5-networkauth

evorster commented on 2021-03-30 11:45 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-30 11:47 (UTC) by evorster)

Thanks for checking over my work.

The makedepends in kdenlive-git is pretty much the same as kdenlive, except for the added git dependency, as we are checking out the source with it.

I had a look with namcap, and there are a couple of new dependencies, but nothing that qualifies as "lots of stuff"

Can you please post a list of this stuff that is missing?

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-30 10:39 (UTC)

This misses lots of stuff in makedepends, see the ASP PKGBUILD for reference (asp checkout kdenlive)

This package follows the master branch, the last update to which was done 8 hours ago. How much more up to date do you want?

kdenlive-release-git follows the latest released branch, currently 19.08

electricprism commented on 2019-11-04 02:51 (UTC)

It seems to me that

Is newer than

Or at least that 19.04 should be revved to 19.08 -- this is a git package afterall

rican-linux commented on 2019-04-22 03:30 (UTC)

for non plasma 5 users the plasma-framework package is needed as a dependency to build and run as of now.

muralisc commented on 2017-04-01 17:54 (UTC)

Cribbed for while starting. Fixed by installing "sdl_image" manually

grandchild commented on 2016-11-13 00:36 (UTC)

you should add extra/qt5-quickcontrols to the dependencies. it segfaults on start without it.

syarifqwerty commented on 2016-07-28 02:21 (UTC)

i can't open title for saved title. must rename saved title with *.kdenlivetitle

evorster commented on 2016-07-02 01:57 (UTC)

The dependencies were added to be the same as the official kdenlive package. Thanks for the info on the quotation marks, it is fixed now.

blackhole commented on 2016-07-01 22:03 (UTC)

Also some quotation marks missing in depends

blackhole commented on 2016-07-01 22:01 (UTC)

Why plasma-desktop?

evorster commented on 2016-05-27 08:53 (UTC)

The issue with the home directory deletion has been corrected, according to the git comments.

osc commented on 2016-05-25 18:16 (UTC) (edited on 2016-05-25 18:29 (UTC) by osc)

i had the same issue! my /home/myuser was deleted! but the problem could be a kdenlive commit rather than this package:

xF0E commented on 2016-05-25 13:01 (UTC)

ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION don't install this package(at least the current version). Installed it yesterday and upon the first start the whole content of my /home was deleted. Such a shame. I only tried this version because the 16.04 crashes a way too frequently.

regreddit commented on 2016-04-01 16:09 (UTC)

This package isn't really usable with gnome until oxygen-icons is installed. The interface is missing all of its icons and buttons. I think it should be a required dependency

blackhole commented on 2016-03-27 00:07 (UTC)

I am using xfce4. I think kinit must be a dependency, otherwise it would be impossible to add clips "could not start process cannot talk to klauncher the name org.kde.klauncher5 was not provided by any .service files"

jz_train commented on 2016-02-01 16:32 (UTC)

Can confirm. qt5-quickcontrols eliminates the segfault

nous commented on 2016-01-21 09:51 (UTC)

Needs qt5-quickcontrols in depends(), otherwise kdenlive segfaults at launch.

evorster commented on 2015-11-16 09:11 (UTC)

Optional dependency of oxygen-icons added.

commented on 2015-11-14 13:11 (UTC)

"oxygen-icons" should definitely be marked as "optional for xfce" as the hicolor-icon-theme doesn't seem to do the trick - missing "play" "markers" etc buttons until oxygen-icons is installed.

bidulock commented on 2015-09-08 00:02 (UTC)

I think you also need kded as a dependency just as the 15.08 version from 'extra'.

bidulock commented on 2015-09-07 23:46 (UTC)

A corrected PKGBUILD with a VCS conforming pkgver() furnction is here:

evorster commented on 2015-06-03 13:10 (UTC)

I get this segfault too, reported the backtrace to devs upstream. I suggest using kdenlive-applications15.04-git for now until this is fixed.

RankoKohime commented on 2015-05-25 16:29 (UTC)

Also experiencing a segfault at startup on my end. Even running through gdb, the only output is that the application segfaulted.

evorster commented on 2015-02-27 08:32 (UTC)

Looks like the dependency of mlt-git has changed to mlt-qt5. It may be best to base this package of off kdenlive-frameworks-git now, as that is what I used to build the latest working git version of kdenlive, with only changing the source to the same one used in kdenlive-git. The other option could be to make a new package called kdenive-kf5, but since kdenlive-git does not build anymore in it's current form, it may be best to just modify this package? ;)

evorster commented on 2015-02-27 08:07 (UTC)

As of 2015-02-27, the git master is now based on Kdenlive-git gained two dependencies, namely: "extra-cmake-modules" and "kdoctools" I get a successful build with those two extra depenedncies installed: kdenlive-git-v0.9.10.r225.gda91989-1, but the binary segfaults

arojas commented on 2015-02-25 22:22 (UTC)

This is now based on Qt5/KF5

IncredibleLaser commented on 2015-02-02 21:07 (UTC)

I'm not 100% sure about that. I think kdenlive just uses the icons as specified in application appearance settings (which for KDE is systemsettings). However, any icon set providing the appropriate icons should be good. That's why hicolor-icon-theme is a dependency of this package (which in itself only provides the directories, not icons itself). Not perfect, I agree, but I don't like listing all icon sets as optional dependencies. Thoughts?

sakalisc commented on 2015-01-30 15:08 (UTC)

Hi, with the current dependencies, icons do not appear in the application. Installing oxygen-icons seems to fix this, perhaps the package should be a dependency? At the very least, an optional one? Best

nous commented on 2014-10-05 13:01 (UTC)

Thanks for testing, as I no longer use the -git version.

wcasanova commented on 2014-10-03 18:13 (UTC)

thanks perfect current version 0.9.10

e8hffff commented on 2014-03-02 19:05 (UTC)

Still builds. Just need to change 'pkgver=' in PKGBUILD, to represent your date or build name.

lockheed commented on 2014-02-23 18:42 (UTC)

Well, if anyone wants to adopt it, here's the fix that should be implemented:

nous commented on 2014-02-21 20:54 (UTC)

I'm not actively using this anymore. I'll orphan it so anyone interested can adopt it.

The package is broken in the vdpau part. Here's details:

Package "glew" needs to be added as a required package to compile kdenlive-git.

Splashy commented on 2013-06-01 06:41 (UTC)

If you can't launch kdenlive: kdenlive with --mlt-path /usr/share/mlt/profiles and then in kdenlive go in option/environment and check that the path for the binaries are ok.

nous commented on 2012-09-23 16:33 (UTC)

I tried to compile using makepkg but it does not work for me unless I apply the modification shown in my previous comment. Attilio

nous commented on 2012-07-19 18:25 (UTC)

If yaourt (or any other pacman/makepkg wrapper) fails, please use straight makepkg. It should work where yaourt fails. I still can't compile it though, cmake wont find automoc4 binary no matter what.

PKGBUILD proposed below for git repo worked fine assuming that you rename kdenlive-svn.install to kdenlive.install. I hope that maintainer will update it.

No longer works with ffmpeg-mt-git (which uses x264-git). avformat is not recognized when starting Kdenlive. I had to go back to x264 and ffmpeg from Extra/Community and mlt-git (AUR).

alphazo commented on 2011-02-18 22:44 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD has been working fine until rev 5425. qjson package is now required (for building only I guess). Can you please add it as a build dependency.

I tuned the PKGbuild a bit and now the build works flawlessly... <script src=""></script>

I get this error: mkdir: kann Verzeichnis „build“ nicht anlegen: Die Datei existiert bereits (mkdir: cannot create directory "build": it already exists). Also kdenlive-svn does not like mlt-git because the version number is not high enough (but it's mlt-git and it's newer than mlt).
