Install VidCutter on Linux Mint 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install VidCutter on Linux Mint 21. For those of you who didn’t know, VidCutter is a free and open-source video editing software that lets you trim and edit various video files in different formats. VidCutter is available for Linux, Windows, and macOS systems. It’s built using Python and Qt5 and uses FFmpeg as its decoding and encoding backend.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of VidCutter video editing software on Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).

  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
