I have been trying to get KDEnlive to run under Lubuntu 12.04, but have come up against a problem with sound support.

KDEnlive by default forces an installation of pulseaudio, which I have subsequently removed.

Now all apps are working fine again with sound except KDEnlive, which, when ALSA output is configured, throws an error message claiming

"SDL Failed to open audio: No available audio device"

Searching for this problem suggests that it's because the SDL library versions installed are pulseaudio ones, not ALSA ones, and that installing


Should sort out the problem.

However, libsdl.2debain-alsa has been removed from Precise.

Any ideas how I might go about sorting this? I'd rather not build the SDL libs from source if I can help it!!!
