For those who are interested in being able to install this video editor in their system, they should follow the following instructions.

The first method to obtain this video editor in the system ( only valid until Ubuntu 18.04 lts ), is adding the repository of the application to our system. For this, we must open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T and in it, we will execute the following.

First we are going to add the repository with:

onesudo add-apt-repository ppa:haraldhv/shotcut

Then we update the list of packages and repositories with this command:

onesudo apt-get update

Finally we proceed to install the application with:

onesudo apt-get install shotcut

And ready with it will have been installed in the system.

Another method that we have to obtain this editor, is downloading the application in its AppImage format, which gives us the ease of being able to use this application without installing or adding things to the system.

To do this, just open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T and in it execute the following command:

onewget https://github.com/mltframework/shotcut/releases/download/v19.04.30/Shotcut-190430.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage -O shotcut.appimage

Done this now we must give execution permissions to the file downloaded with:

onesudo chmod +x shotcut.appimage

And finally we can run the application with the following command:


Or we can double click on the file downloaded from a file manager.

When you start the file for the first time, you will be asked if you want to integrate the program with the system. You must click on “Yes” if you want to integrate it or click “No” if you do not want to.

And now you can start using this editor in your system, just look for the launcher in the applications menu.
