Multimedia, AV I followed the hype: Reddit, Slashdot's front page, months of thumbs up on my blog and various video forums by Linux users for OpenShot. Given that I'm longing for a usable Linux video editor since 2003, and given that OpenShot version 1.0 had just been released, I naturally gave it a go, by also downloading its provided dependencies on my Ubuntu Linux 9.10.

The main developer may not have the man power to test his software on every single distro out there. Especially Ubuntu, with its "break everything every 6 months" policy. Ubuntu is a very fast moving target. They've broken Xorg and gtk no less than 2 times last year. It's not a one man job to test the software on every machine on every distros. I suggest you spend some time testing every little bit of that software on Ubuntu 9.10, isolate the bugs and write bug reports as detailed as possible. This may help a lot.
