Avidemux video editor reached the new 2.7 series a few days ago. Now you can install it in Ubuntu 16.04 and/or Ubuntu 17.04 via GetDeb repository, though there’s already an appimage available.
For the release highlights and appimage, a single executable file (non-install), see this page.
To install Avidemux 2.7, open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for “terminal” from app launcher, and do following steps:
[ac-box style=”tip”]The getdeb repository has not been updated for a few months. For Ubuntu 17.04, Ubuntu 18.04 users who want to install Avidemux 2.7.0, see HERE[/ac-box]
1. Add the GetDeb repository via command:
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc)-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
For Linux Mint 18.x, replace
$(lsb_release -sc) directly with
xenial in the command. Type in your password when prompts and hit Enter.
2. Download and install the repository key via command:
wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
3. Finally install
avidemux2.6-qt either via Synaptic Package Manager:
or by running command:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install avidemux2.6-qt
It’s Avidemux 2.7 though getdeb still uses the old 2.6 package naming system.
You can remove the GetDeb repository via Software & Updates utility (Other Software tab), and remove Avidemux 2.7 either via Synaptic package manage or by running command:
sudo apt-get remove --autoremove avidemux2.6-qt
getdeb.net seems not to work anymore
This worked for me w/ Linux Mint 18.3 MATE, however the get.deb repository is not signed and is warned as such when running in synaptic
This does not work for 17.10
This worked for me Kubuntu 16.04. Thank you!
i love you:*
