Shotcut AppImage problem

Not sure if it’s a bug, but the latest SC AppImage seems to be missing
I often use AppImages and have never encountered the following error:

OS specs:

PRETTY_NAME=“Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)”
NAME=“Debian GNU/Linux”
VERSION=“9 (stretch)”

Linux version 4.9.0-4-amd64 ( (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.51-1 (2017-09-28)

This cannot be fixed in the Shotcut AppImage. The AppImage runtime itself requires FUSE, not Shotcut or its dependencies.

OK thanks @shotcut

Will have a look at my installation of AppImage as others seem to run.

Decided to take another route and extract the AppImage.
All went well until I try to run it.
Comes up with the error:

Aparently this is something related to QT and I can’t find that lib anywhere.
Any help appreciated.


All sorted, needed and ( 64 bit versions) as they were not part of the AppImage.

I don’t know how you launch the appimage after you extract it so it may not be using the bundled dependencies which is bad. I recurved to use the portable archive with its desktop file or launcher script in this situation.

Here is the exact procedure I used:

  1. Downloaded the latest AppImage to /Downloads.

  2. Made it executable.

  3. As mentioned before, running the AppImage did not work although other AppImages do, so…

  4. Extracted it using ./Shotcut-190615.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-extract

  5. This created a folder called “squashfs-root” under /Downloads.

  6. Renamed it to “Shotcut-190615”

  7. Ran “AppRun” but it complained about

  8. Downloaded and extracted “libharfbuzz0b_1.4.2-1_amd64.deb” to “/Downloads/Shotcut-190615/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu”, this then gave me

  9. Ran “AppRun” again but complained about “”.

  10. Repeated process in point 8 but with “libglib2.0-0_2.50.3-2_amd64.deb”.

  11. Ran “AppRun” again and all working.

Here are the appimage exclusions

Thank you Dan, that is a handy list and confirms that those two libs are excluded.
