Install Shotcut on Pop!_OS 22.04
Oct 3, 2022
In this post I detail my install process for Shotcut , a video editor, on Pop!_OS 22.04. This OS is based on Ubuntu 22.04, but has chosen to use flatpak instead of snap.
Flatpak is installed by default on Pop!_OS 22.04, my OS of choice at the moment. System 76 has a basic overview of using flatpak on the terminal available here: Using Flatpak from the command line (Pop!_OS) . I can see that flatpak is available on my machine and Flathub is already setup as the place to look for packages by running the following commands at the terminal:
$ flatpak --version
$ flatpak remotes
Following Shotcut install instructions at flathub , installation is a simple:
$ flatpak install flathub org.shotcut.Shotcut
You can run Shotcut from the terminal using
$ flatpak run org.shotcut.Shotcut
but is simple to hit the super key at this point to
bring up the Pop!_OS application launcher and start typing
shotcut. You should see the Shotcut
application come up as an option before you finish typing. I have done
some very basic testing of Shotcut at this point and everything seems to
be working- yay!
