Cross-posting to or at least tagging with kdenlive


Very big celebration: Lift/gamma/ gain is fixed. Now I don’t miss anything, Kdenlive is perfect for me now.
I am very happy and thank the Kdenlive makers very much.

On Windows 10, the Switch Monitor Fullscreen, when leaving full screen, by keyboard shortcut, is still not returning to the editor/application.

Hello everyone,

Am I reallly the first one to report that “kdenlive-23.08.2-x86_64.AppImage”, even after setting “Properties - Access rights - Execution rights” from “None” to “Owner only” (as I did for all previous versions of Kdenlive that I have on my HDD, starting with kdenlive-22.08.0-x86_x64.AppImage) doesn’t start ?
Hoping for a solution…

Did you make it executable?

23.08.2 starts and works without problems here: both openSUSE Tumbleweed and Debian 12, permissions 744.

Perhaps your AppImage got corrupted during download?

That’s why something like an MD5 sum check or any (““basic””) similar trust check system could be useful…

I downloaded the appimage twice.
VirusTotal didn’t object anything to the files.

One factor is, I’m still using Debian 11…

Any compulsory sandboxing environment to execute the latest appimage?
(in conjunction with Debian 12 - I’d be surprised, but never know) (I mean the appimage size has quite increased - but it’s not the first time between releases… and then cleaning up reduces it again later)

However, I see I’m not the only one who can’t get this appimage to start (see Barry’s initial post here : 23.08.2 issues starting up. No older 23 releases in Archives)

I’m having the same issue on Ubuntu MATE 20.04.6. I’ve been using the AppImage since the Kdenlive PPA ended support for Focal – without issue – until this release.

I filed a bug report, but since 23.08.3 is scheduled for early November, I suspect it may not get any attention.


Hmm, I am using the 23.08.2 appimage on Pop!_OS 22.04 (which is based on Ubunto LTS 22.04) without any issues. Assuming you chmod is to 777 what is happening when you start it from a terminal?

I posted the terminal launch response with the bug report at the posted link.

If I’m interpreting the terminal response correctly, it appears the AppImage is missing files.

Edit: OR my system is missing files that were not a requirement with previous AppImage releases.

All Greek to me, unfortunately :-/

Can you try one of the nightly builds?

I could try, but a nightly build isn’t an actual release, like 23.08.2. It’s just a snapshot of the current state of development of the program, could be unstable, etc. I’d rather stay with actual releases.

I was curious, so I tried starting kdenlive 23.08.2 appimage from Terminal and see similar `GLIBCXX_3.4.29’ not found errors as you, for what it’s worth.

Please add to the bug reported by @CapedMadMan (see above). That shows the devs that it is not an isolated issue. Please share your OS, DE and other useful info.


I looked at CapedMadman’s bug report.
I get exactly the same 16 lines (except for the /tmp/.mount_kdenli … ending) as a return when I launch the appimage from the command line.

I updated the bug report and linked to this thread so the devs can see it is not an isolated incident.

Still, I would encourage you to add to the bug report with info about your OS etc. It helps the devs in troubleshooting this, and you want a fix fast, right?

I tried on Win10 with F11 → monitor changed to full screen on my second monitor. Hit F11 again, it went back into Kdenlive.

Do you have updated the graphic card driver?
How many monitors do you have?

I’m still on an old Intel HD Graphics card (nudge H264-qsv) and I use two monitors.

You gave me an idea when you said two monitors. I just tried changing my Monitor For Fullscreen Output, but no…

Strangely, when I hit the hotkey twice then the windows key twice I’m back in Kdenlive :thinking:
