View Full Version : [ubuntu] First time video editing problem

May 18th, 2008, 06:04 PM
I have been using a windows based video editor on xp and have been looking for alternatives on Ubuntu. During my initial trial I have attempted to use cinelerra but after installing via synaptic I was unable to use and I came up with the following error message:

benbow@benbow-desktop:~$ cinelerra
cinelerra: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libquicktimehv-1.6.0.so.1: undefined symbol: faacDecOpen

Could anyone tell me what it means?

sudo apt-get install libfaad0 libfaac0

Thanks for the tip but:

benbow@benbow-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install libfaad0 libfaac0
[sudo] password for benbow:

E: Couldn't find package libfaad0
benbow@benbow-desktop:~$ cinelerra
cinelerra: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libquicktimehv-1.6.0.so.1: undefined symbol: faacDecOpen

Any other ideas?

I think you are running a different version of ubuntu than me.

Open Synaptic (System>Administration>Synaptic...)

search for libfaac and libfaad and install the libraries you have listed (not the dummy packages or dev packages if they are listed).

Thanks, Quelx. Both libfaac & libfaad are already installed. I am running Gutsy at the moment.
Any other ideas?

what does
ls -l /usr/lib/libquicktime* show?

According to the build log:

faad/faac support was dropped in the latest version for gutsy

You will need to build the package yourself to re-enable faac/faad support

I'm running hardy and the support was re-added back. So your options seem to be upgrade to 8.04 or build the libquicktime from source.

maybe this

sudo apt-get install apt-build
sudo apt-build libquicktime1

I think it should find the libraries and auto enable them.

I think...

sudo dpkg -i libquitime-xxxxx.deb

Hi quelx

Sadly it failed and I don't know exactly what I am doing - looks like I will have to upgrade to Hardy.

Thanks for your efforts.
