Install with flatpak
We release every few months, meaning you most likely want to install the latest release from Flathub.
To try out the latest development branch, get the development snapshot from our own flatpak repository. The repository contains only 64-bit builds.
Please file an issue if you have exact steps to reproduce the bug. Feel free to contact us if you see any problems.
See the flatpak website for how to install flatpak for your distribution.
You need to log out/in again after installing flatpak for apps to show up in menus. Until you log out/in, the flatpak data directories aren't part of your desktop environment's search path. This needs to be done only one time.
Run the commands below as normal user, no root/sudo needed.
Suited for production work.
$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo $ flatpak install flathub org.pitivi.Pitivi
Built daily out of the development branch.
$ flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo $ flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Platform//43 $ flatpak install http://flatpak.pitivi.org/pitivi-master.flatpakref
You can now launch Pitivi from your applications menu as any other installed application.
You can also re run the installer which launches Pitivi after updating to the latest version.
To see if warning or error messages are printed in the console, run:
$ flatpak run org.pitivi.Pitivi//stable
If for some reason you need to use an older Pitivi version, run:
$ flatpak install org.pitivi.Pitivi//0.96 $ flatpak run org.pitivi.Pitivi//0.96
If your software manager doesn't allow this yet, update manually by running:
$ flatpak update org.pitivi.Pitivi
If a new version is fetched, it will be made current.
If your software manager doesn't allow this yet, run the command below:
$ flatpak uninstall org.pitivi.Pitivi
Install GStreamer vaapi support
In the sandbox gstreamer-vaapi is installed but it requires the
org.freedesktop.Platform.VAAPI.Intel extension to be installed.
