I just installed kdenlive on ubuntu 18.04 and tried to launch it but I get this error

kdenlive: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Svg.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libqt5svg5 is already the newest version (5.9.5-0ubuntu1).

If someone could give me some suggestion on it.

  • Unfortunately users of Debian stable are still stuck with 0.9.10 which is unsupported. maybe this is the reason why i cant launch it Commented Jan 3, 2020 at 20:39
  • Are you running Debian or Ubuntu? I never tried to install kdenlive on my Debian stable, you can try to install it with flatpaks or use an AppImage.

Alternatively, you can use snapd, flatpak, or appimage (portable).
