Unable to start Openshot

Postby satimis » Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:20 pm

Hi all,

Ubuntu 16.04 desktop as VM of VirtualBox

On Terminal starting Openshot following warning popup
Code: Select all
OpenShot has failed to import some of the Python files or libraries
required for our application to run.  Here are some trouble shooting

Tip 1) Check if MLT can be successfully imported in Python.  Run the
 following commands, and see if any errors are displayed.  If you get
 an error, you need to investigate the correct way to install MLT.
 NOTE:  Do not type the $ or >> characters in the examples below.

       $ python
       >> import mlt
       >> mlt.Factory().init()

Tip 2) If MLT is working from the first example, then the next tip is
 to look at the above error messages very closely, and google for more
 help.  It's likely the problem is already reported, and maybe there is
 a simple work-around.  Also, you can search for bugs or report a new
 bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/openshot.  Good luck!

Please help. Thanks
