How to install * on Ubuntu and derivatives

Audio | Video



The team recommends the AppImage version (temporarily) . You can download it HERE.

Once downloaded, make sure it has execution rights by tight-clicking on it → properties then look for security | authorizations tab and check “Allow executing file as a program” or something very similar.

or (replace [X] with your version or just press TAB for auto-completion) :

chmod +x kdenlive[X].AppImage

Now you can double-click it.

You can use the flatpak too (for flatpak on Ubuntu, please take a look at “Add flatpak to Ubuntu” at top of this page)

Command Line :

flatpak --user install flathub org.kde.kdenlive

or open Ubuntu Software and search for Kdenlive. The flatpak version will have “source :” under it’s name.


Go HERE, click Download → Linux

The installer comes into an archive. just unpack it then double-click the extracted file to open a very simple installer and install Natron in a folder in your /home/[you].

You can also use the “portable” version. It’s a mere compressed version. Just uncompress  it wherever you want and double-click Natron.

If you can’t double-click it, check inside nautilus preferences (top of your screen “Files” → Preferences. Look for Executable   text files or something similar. Choose “ask”.

OBS (Open Broadcasting Software)

ATM, the snap version in Ubuntu Software doesn’t allow you to allow it (ok weir sentence lol) to use file-systems outside your Home.

I prefer the PPA version (with NVENC support to encode using Nvidia graphics card) :

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:obsproject/obs-studio && sudo apt install -y ffmpeg obs-studio


No problem : Snap is perfect.

If you really want a deb package :

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 931FF8E79F0876134EDDBDCCA87FF9DF48BF1C90 && echo deb stable non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list && sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y spotify-client

MKV Extractor


sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hizo/mkv-extractor-gui && sudo apt install mkv-extractor-qt5

of course, before Ubuntu 18.04 :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hizo/mkv-extractor-gui && sudo apt update && sudo apt install mkv-extractor-qt5
