Using Debian testing

When I try to start Openshot it crashes. I have tried three ways to install it: Regular packages, Flatpak and AppImage, but I get the same result from all of them.

Error message:

What should I do to make it work? Or should I file a bug report?

Since the error message is "'openshot::InvalidFile' what(): File could not be opened", you might check if a file you had been editing was moved, removed or damaged. Clear the MRU list.

Specifically: @Broman has found: "I removed ~/.openshot_qt/backup/backup.osp and it worked.

Another possibility is that the package was improperly installed and that an essential file is missing.

  • I removed ~/.openshot_qt/backup/backup.osp and it worked. You can edit your answer to target this specific file.
