v3.46.3 release is missing a release page on Github.

Missing a dependency.

losslesscut: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Resolved by installing libxss.

RoestVrijStaal commented on 2022-04-25 21:14 (UTC)

@fabrixx Apparently it works again by adding the parameter --no-sandbox when invoking losslesscut with the CLI as described here

However, a better workaround is ~~altering losslesscut.desktop~~ duplicating /usr/share/applications/losslesscut.desktop to $HOME/.local/share/applications/losslesscut.desktop and add the --no-sandbox to the Exec= rule.

@soloturn I'm using the ffmpeg packaged binary. Is he going to release a binary without ffmpeg?

soloturn commented on 2022-03-06 09:12 (UTC) (edited on 2022-03-06 09:12 (UTC) by soloturn)

using the arch standard installed ffmpeg is now supported:

Thanks @mischka. See if the change I made helps.

mischka commented on 2021-07-14 16:41 (UTC)

losslesscut.desktop should have the following included so the icon is correctly displayed for running processes:


archisman commented on 2021-02-18 10:04 (UTC)

@dmp1ce I installed the application, and got that error. And I was able to fix it with the command I mentioned in the previous comment. I don't know how to reproduce it. I added the comment so that it may help someone else in future.

dmp1ce commented on 2021-02-18 02:00 (UTC)

@archisman, How can I reproduce this error? Just starting the application looked fine to me.

archisman commented on 2021-02-17 17:03 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-18 10:03 (UTC) by archisman)

I got this error.

dmp1ce commented on 2020-11-10 13:14 (UTC)

Thanks @smrqdt.

I created losslesscut-bin and made the merge request on both packages.

smrqdt commented on 2020-11-10 04:02 (UTC)

As this package uses prebuilt binaries it should contain a "-bin" suffix in its name (, please consider renaming. Afaik the process for that is cloning and submitting a merge request (using "Submit Request" in the Package Actions box).

dmp1ce commented on 2020-07-13 14:33 (UTC)

@jogai, what problem are you having? I see the svg here:

jogai commented on 2020-07-13 06:31 (UTC)

The icon svg is not on github anymore.

3.23.8 is a tag, not a release currently.

dmp1ce commented on 2020-04-10 19:38 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-15 12:41 (UTC) by dmp1ce)

3.19.0 is a "pre-release". Please flag again when it is a "release".

dmp1ce commented on 2020-04-02 00:36 (UTC)

cultleader: Thanks! Should be fixed now.

cultleader commented on 2020-04-01 22:59 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-01 23:01 (UTC) by cultleader)

@dmp1ce I had to change the ln line in the pkgbuild from ln -s /usr/share/losslesscut/lossless-cut "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/losslesscut to ln -s /usr/share/losslesscut/losslesscut "$pkgdir"/usr/bin/losslesscut It's strange because on the losslesscut github, they use lossless-cut in their examples as well.

JupY commented on 2020-03-12 20:24 (UTC) (edited on 2020-03-12 20:25 (UTC) by JupY)

@dmp1ce, Reinstalling did the trick for me. Thanks for your help!

dmp1ce commented on 2020-03-12 00:56 (UTC)

@JupY, Perhaps try removing the package and reinstalling. I'm going to try and prevent the issue in the next release.

JupY commented on 2020-03-11 23:33 (UTC)

I still can't install the update because of sha256sum Error. Cleaning the cache didn't do anything for me. (I'm using pamac-aur)

muvvenby commented on 2020-03-02 13:32 (UTC)

Thanks! Clearing the cache did the trick. Didn't think about that, so TIL :-)

dmp1ce commented on 2020-03-01 15:56 (UTC)

Try clearing your cache if you are using an AUR helper. I did update the checksum but the filename is the same as the last version. I may force a rename of the file to prevent this issue.

muvvenby commented on 2020-03-01 15:40 (UTC)

The update to 3.13.0-1 can't be installed because the file LosslessCut-linux.tar.bz2 fails the checksum.

dmp1ce commented on 2020-02-24 02:41 (UTC)

I took over as maintainer for this package. Please message me with issues or suggestions.

tnilzon commented on 2020-02-22 09:12 (UTC)

v3.7.0 is now published.

  • Reorder segs function
  • Improve settings screen
  • Frame accurate seek
  • Make side panel for cut segments
  • Use up/down key to jump prev/next segment

jose1711 commented on 2020-02-10 12:38 (UTC)

no more using it, disowning so feel free to adopt

jose1711 commented on 2020-01-08 15:03 (UTC)

@bus removed, thanks

bus commented on 2020-01-07 18:36 (UTC)

gconf has recently been dropped from repos (because it's been deprecated for years) and this package depends on it while the program itself runs fine without it. Could you remove it from the dependencies list?

kescherAUR commented on 2019-05-10 15:45 (UTC)

Version 2.2.0 removed ia32 support. Here's what an updated PKGBUILD might look like:

pkgdesc="Crossplatform GUI tool for lossless trimming/cutting of video/audio files"
depends=('ffmpeg' 'gtk2' 'nss' 'gconf')
source_x86_64=(losslesscut_${pkgver}.zip::"${pkgver}/" "losslesscut.desktop")

jose1711 commented on 2019-01-31 15:11 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-31 15:11 (UTC) by jose1711)

something like this?

source_i686=(losslesscut_${pkgver}.zip::"${pkgver}/" "losslesscut.desktop")
source_x86_64=(losslesscut_${pkgver}.zip::"${pkgver}/" "losslesscut.desktop")

xuiqzy commented on 2019-01-31 14:59 (UTC)

Could you please integrate the version number when saving the downloaded package, so the checksum check doesn't fail on a version upgrade when the old file is also present? You can see here how to do that: Thanks :)

md5 hash for the new update does not match, update 1.14.0-1 is broken

jose1711 commented on 2018-08-23 21:07 (UTC)

same here - but rebuilding was not really needed. i suspect recent ffmpeg update:

[2018-07-19 21:25] [ALPM] upgraded ffmpeg (1:4.0.1-3 -> 1:4.0.2-1)
[2018-08-17 00:17] [ALPM] upgraded ffmpeg (1:4.0.2-1 -> 1:4.0.2-2)

Today I reinstalled version 1.12.0-3 and now it works. I have no clue why? ;-)

hcjl commented on 2018-08-12 09:44 (UTC)

@jose1711 Thank you very much!

jose1711 commented on 2018-08-11 21:53 (UTC)


hcjl commented on 2018-08-11 21:13 (UTC)

Building works fine, but it segfaults now with latest Arch updates. Here is the output of strace ->

Maybe it is an upstream bug.

eniac commented on 2018-08-11 07:31 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-11 14:42 (UTC) by eniac)

@jose1711 same here. Sorry I hadn't checked the md5sum myself and assumed the PKGBUILD had not been updated. I see " ... FAILED" because md5sum's result for x64 is 0d356116d65613bafc153ea49e7049f5 as you said.

Edit: thanks for fixing the pkgbuild, it works now.

jose1711 commented on 2018-08-10 22:38 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-10 22:39 (UTC) by jose1711)

please share output of

curl -sL --output - '' | md5sum - 

on your system. i get 0d356116d65613bafc153ea49e7049f5 which is the sum i had in the PKGBUILD originally (before doing the update suggested by cgorichanaz)

hcjl commented on 2018-08-10 22:11 (UTC)

@eniac change the md5sum in PKGBUILD as cgorichanaz already mentioned.

eniac commented on 2018-08-10 17:01 (UTC) (edited on 2018-08-11 07:32 (UTC) by eniac)

MD5 seems to be wrong for

MD5(losslesscut.desktop)= 460a126a50892d91bdc53de7fa3bc182
