Linux portable tar users: No install required, simply extract the archive and run it. You can drag the Shotcut folder to copy and move it wherever you want. If double-clicking the icon in your file manager does not launch Shotcut, open, and try double-clicking the shotcut shell script. Do not try to run bin/shotcut directly. You may need to install JACK from your distribution. Here is a page that lists some required packages for specific distributions.

Snap Users: On snap-enabled systems, install from the store with snap install shotcut --classic
Since this snap is using classic confinement based on the portable zip above, not all dependencies are bundled, and it has the same run-time requirements as the portable tar.


File checksums for downloads are available in md5sum or sha256sum format.
