How to Install PiTiVi 0.91 On Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Elementary OS And Pear OS

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, PiTiVi is an open-source movie editor for the Linux system. The latest version available is PiTiVi 0.91, which has been released a few days ago. Among other changes, it comes with support for GTK+3 and Gstreamer 1.x.

In this article I will show you how to install PiTiVi 0.91 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Elementary OS and Pear OS.

There is no repository available for PiTiVi 0.91, so we have to install it from sources. Follow the instructions exactly, in order to get a successful installation.

Install the needed dependencies:

$ apt-get build-dep pitivi

Download and extract the PiTiVi archive:

$ wget -c http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pitivi/0.91/pitivi-0.91.tar.xz
$ tar -xJvf pitivi-0.91.tar.xz
$ cd pitivi-0.91

Make the propper configurations:

$ ./configure && make

Install PiTiVi 0.91 systemwide:

$ sudo make install

    Thanks for the tip, but this will leave a mess of binaries in /usr/bin, where you already have pitivi installed and managed by the deb package manager, no? Doesn’t ‘configure’ take an install target so that you can install in a self contained place, perhaps /opt ?

    Thanks again,
    Leo

      I’m trying to use your directions as a tool to install .92 (having the same issue with .91 and your exact directions):
      $ wget -c http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pitivi/0.90/pitivi-0.92.tar.xz

      $ tar -xJvf pitivi-0.92.tar.xz

      $ cd pitivi-0.92
      $ ./configure && make
      $ sudo sudo make install
      but in linux mint 15 I get this warning at this point: “checking for cairo… configure: error: Package requirements (cairo) were not met:

      No package ‘cairo’ found

      Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
      installed software in a non-standard prefix.

      Alternatively, you may set the environment variables cairo_CFLAGS
      and cairo_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
      See the pkg-config man page for more details.”

      How can I make this work?

      I’ve tried
      $ sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev
      $ sudo apt-get install itstool
