This bug literally just happened to me yesterday, and the day before then, shotcut opened and worked like a dream. However, now, Shotcut silently fails when I try to open it using the desktop icon, and using the terminal to open it displays errors regarding LADSPA before Aborting at the error message “free(): Invalid Pointer”. I will link the output of the terminal below. I have not changed any audio settings that would’ve caused LADSPA or Shotcut to misbehave between the last time it launched successfully, and the first time it failed to launch. I have reinstalled it multiple times in both FlatPack and Portable Tar form, and neither version will launch.
