    Perhaps it's a good idea to make a copy of your original video to practice on, if you haven't done that already. Once you've done that, experiment. You don't sound far away. If you make a wrong cut, hit control+z to undo.

    Just mark out the section you want to cut with the razor tool and hit return? I've never used it but, as in this thread which gives pictorial instructions, it can't be that hard.

    You could also simply drag the beginning or the end of the clip to where you want and save that as a file.

    or maybe quicker >>

    IN YOUR CASE:

    1:54 I want to cut it to be 1:36

    try:

    Code:
     avconv -i INPUTFILE.mkv -c copy -ss 00:00:00 -to 00:1:36  OUTPUTFILE.mkv
    or if you have ffmpeg

    Code:
     ffmpeg -i INPUTFILE.mkv -c copy -ss 00:00:00 -to 00:1:36  OUTPUTFILE.mkv

    Code:
    avconv  -i INPUTFILE.mkv -c copy -ss 00:14:48 -t 00:01:18  OUTPUTFILE.mkv
    Code:
     ffmpeg  -i INPUTFILE.mkv -c copy -ss 00:14:48 -t 00:01:18  OUTPUTFILE.mkv
    where the first time is start time and second duration of cut piece 1:18

    also ffmpeg allows you to do this

    Code:
     ffmpeg -i INPUTFILE.mkv -c copy -ss 00:14:48 -to 00:16:06  OUTPUTFILE.mkv
    with -to where second time is finishing time::: in this case you also end up with a 1:18 cut

    Code:
    -t duration         record or transcode "duration" seconds of audio/video
    -to time_stop       record or transcode stop time
    -to NOT available in avconv
