Ubuntu – Is there an updated solution for avidemux on Ubuntu 16.04

16.04avidemuxsoftware installation

I saw this answer – Guide me to a dependable subtitling software that also hard-codes subtitles, but the getdeb links seem to be broken or gone.

I also tried the appImage file for Linux here – Download Avidemux latest release, but it would not execute at all. (I did set the file properties to "executable".)

Also no results on Ubuntu package search.

So is there any currently available solution to run this on 16.04?

Best Answer

You can install Avidemux on Ubuntu 16.04 as a flatpak package. Flatpak is a next-generation technology for building and distributing desktop applications on Linux that is supported in Ubuntu 18.04 and later. For earlier versions of Ubuntu flatpak support can be added from ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak.

To install Avidemux in Ubuntu 16.04, open the terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak # required in 16.04 only, not in later releases
sudo apt update 
sudo apt install flatpak
sudo flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak install flathub org.avidemux.Avidemux
flatpak run org.avidemux.Avidemux  

The last command is the command to start Avidemux from the terminal. Avidemux can also be launched by clicking on its icon in the Dash.
