View Full Version : [ubuntu] Openshot wont Install

June 27th, 2012, 09:36 AM
I am trying to install Openshot on Ubuntu 12.04 but get the following.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
openshot: Depends: python (>= 2.5) but 2.7.3-0ubuntu2 is to be installed

I recently upgraded from 11.10 and had the same problem there as well.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Do not want to start from scratch and reinstall 12.04. I think problem might be related to Kdenlive that I tried to install some time back.

what version of python is installed in your machine??? to see that copy the code in terminal and paste the output here:

python --versionI guess the python version is incompatible for your installation as u said u upgraded from 11.10

Have tried loading openshot .deb package using Gdebi (as suggested) and get the following error
Error: Cannot install 'python-mlt3'

When I try to install python-mlt3 I get

sudo apt-get install python-mlt3

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python-mlt3 : Depends: libmlt4 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Think this is permissions problem, will look at them later.
Thanks for your help.

i guess there is some problem with your upgrade to 12.04 because i have openshot installed in my machine recently without any errors... The last line of your error might highlight what i meant...
