OpenShot is available in Ubuntu Software Center, but it’s a little out-dated. If you would like the latest version, choose one ppa to add to your system:

  • OpenShot Stable PPA contains the current stable version of OpenShot Video Editor. Hit Ctrl+Alt+T to launch terminal, and add this ppa by:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openshot.developers/ppa

  • If you would like the most bleeding-edge version of OpenShot, add OpenShot Experimental PPA which is mostly stable.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonoomph/openshot-edge

After added a ppa, update and install the latest OpenShot with 2 commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openshot openshot-doc
