    How do we upgrade to Openshot 1.4 with knoppix ?

    It is really neat that Openshot 1.3.1 comes pre-installed with the knoppix 6.7.1 DVD that I used to create a boot USB. However, I'm not sure how to upgrade to Openshot 1.4.0 and the directions page don't make much sense to me:
    http://www.openshot.org/download/

    Suggestions? Thanks

    Hi, Denver Dave!

    You can upgrade OpenShot Video Editor to version 1.4.0 if you issue
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -t testing install openshot openshot-doc
    in a terminal.

    If you cannot start OpenShot Video Editor you should read the web page Seg fault on certain language & locale combinations (non UTF-8 ) where you can find a new file Language_Init.py that should replace /usr/share/pyshared/openshot/language/Language_Init.py

    Upgraded to OpenShot 1.4.0

    Thank you for the OpenShot and other help that you have given me in the knoppix forums.

    The two sudo commands that you suggested did upgrade my openshot to 1.4.0.

    I tried the first command before, but how are we supposed to know the 2nd command for those of us without supernatural powers? I reviewed the openshot website again and I don't see where I missed this information.

    It seems like with ubuntu and knoppix, the applications are already included or someone eventually gives a few sudo commands that work or I don't get the application installed or upgraded. I haven't tried the .tar route yet - maybe I'll try for another application.

    Openshot is somewhat unique in that I'm not trying to duplicate a program that runs under Windows - I don't believe that Openshot is available for windows. While openshot may be limited in some ways, I've found it much much easier to use than other video editors - windows or linux.

    Thank you - I'm off editing with openshot 1.4.0

    I think I'm running knoppix 7.0.2 and I'm running openshot 1.4.2 The openshot website says that version 1.4.3 was available in October, but when I run sudo apt-get install openshot openshot-doc I get latest version is already installed.

    Actually, I'm on knoppix version 7.0.3. Isn't there a command to display the knoppix version rather than trying to catch it as the computer boots up? The desktop screen says 7.0 in the bottom right, but it doesn't give the minor knoppix version.

    Greetings, Denver Dave.

    'Knoppix 7.0.4' shows for a few seconds at boot at lower left in text.
    Type any single character to stop the time-out to see it.

    Hi, Denver Dave!

    If you issue the commands
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    apt-cache policy openshot
    apt-cache policy openshot-doc
    you will see that the two packages openshot version 1.4.3 and openshot-doc version 1.4.3 are already available in the unstable distribution. It is possible to install them if you have a fresh install of Knoppix 7.0.3 CD. It depends on the requirements of the already configured packages whether openshot version 1.4.3 can also be installed on your system.
    I would try the following commands
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install openshot/unstable openshot-doc/unstable
    You will get an error message if there are irresolvable dependencies.

    I hope that helps.

    It's the message from
    '/mnt-system/boot/syslinux/boot.msg'

    Thank you klaus2008 and werner for not only giving the answer, but how you knew what the answer was. I'm now on openshot 1.4.3 Note to self: to print out the knoppix version file to the screen: cat /mnt-system/boot/syslinux/boot.msg Thanks !
