If you install OpenShot on Ubuntu 22.04 or other newer Linux distributions you may note that it doesn’t run – which is an easy fix. Running the program from the terminal gave an error:
exceptions:ERROR Unhandled Exception Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/openshot-qt", line 33, in <module> sys.exit(load_entry_point('openshot-qt==2.5.1', 'gui_scripts', 'openshot-qt')()) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/openshot_qt/launch.py", line 97, in main app = OpenShotApp(argv) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/openshot_qt/classes/app.py", line 219, in __init__ self.window = MainWindow(mode) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/openshot_qt/windows/main_window.py", line 2521, in __init__ self.timeline = TimelineWebView(self) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/openshot_qt/windows/views/timeline_webview.py", line 3000, in __init__ self.cache_renderer.setInterval(0.5 * 1000) TypeError: setInterval(self, int): argument 1 has unexpected type 'float'
You will find the bug report here (issue with the current stable version with newer versions of Python 3.10), and it has been fixed in the nightly build. To fix this I have added this to the system using the instructions here:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openshot.developers/libopenshot-daily sudo apt update sudo apt install openshot-qt python3-openshot
After entering that in the terminal, entering your password, it will install the latest build and you will be able to open OpenShot and edit your video projects 🙂
