Hi! I’m an old Adobe Premiere user and I’m jumping ship from Windows. So Linux Mint is my current OS and I’ve been using the Shotcut 22.09.23 AppImage binary. I also see a Flatpak version but it is not the latest version.
I’ve been watching tutorials etc., Yeah OK, enough about my life story…
Is there a way to drop a 3rd party filter into my filesystem so that the AppImage will find it?
I would suggest it’s borderline on being a program bug
Filters like this imho probably should go somewhere local like ~/.local/melty/Shotcut/qml/filters on linux or \Users<user>\Appdata\local\MeltyTech\Shotcut\qml\filters on windows and be picked up there.
This is because they are local for a user and not directly part of the program itself which is set to be read-only for various reasons.
I’ve done a pile of searching about this and I don’t see a solution. OpenSSL is up to date. CA-Certificates are up to date. There are some references to this being an issue with the Qt5 kit. I have a brand new desktop and an older laptop both with fresh installations of Linux Mint and they both behave the same way. “Check a search engine” is not a practical solution for a casual user where the solution is not obvious.
I’m going to packet capture this to get the URL and try it from a browser to check the certificate. That will tell me if it’s an OpenSSL issue generally or a Qt5 problem.
That’s a fair enough comment, However I can only pass on what I know from where I have seen the same problem elsewhere, such as doing TLS upgrades in Banking and Financial Software.
It also could be much more fundamental like an AppImage not having file-write access because of the inherent Security Policy That means that the entire TLS system won’t be able to write to the program directory. I’m only guessing - I could easily be wrong.
@david.lyon I moved from AppImage to the tar binary based on the recommendation from @shotcut hoping to get the 3rd party plugins to work. I think they are too old and no longer compatible, so I gave up on that. Not a big deal.
Shotcut is very good quality software, amazing really, considering it is FOSS. I selected it for those reasons, so I hope this is taken as feedback, not criticism. I’m just reporting things that don’t work out of the box as a new user would expect.
Thank you for your comments.
It seems the app is attempting to connect to 220.127.116.11 (dfw28s29-in-f10.1e100.net) during the QUIC handshake and failing…
