The title says it all. I’ve downloaded shotcut-linux-x86_64-200711.txz and extracted it. I’ve also tried downloading the AppImage version and the app image itself couldn’t start. I think it’s a problem with my machine but I’m not sure. If this is a fixable problem, please let me know. Thanks!
Shotcut.desktop won’t open on Ubuntu 20.04
GNOME Shell made changes that breaks the relative path hack used in the .desktop file. I think they do not want people to use uninstalled software/portable app bundles. Use
Shotcut.app/shotcut instead (but NOT Shotcut.app/bin/shotcut).
the AppImage version and the app image itself couldn’t start
It works for me. Maybe you need to right click it, choose Properties, and set it Executable.
Ah ok thanks I got it working now. I wasn’t able to get it to open with the GUI but I was able to open it through terminal by running:
user@host:~$ sudo apt install shotcut
