64-bit Linux snap

On snap-enabled systems, install the 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 zip.

Linux Zip file 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 the following dependencies from their distribution (the exact names may vary): SDL, libexif, and JACK. A number of the audio filters such as Band Pass, Bass & Treble, Compressor, Delay, Expander, High Pass, Limiter, Low Pass, Notch, and Reverb requires that you install the SWH LADSPA plugins package, which is commonly available in all distributions. Here is a page that lists some required packages for specific distributions.
