Ok. I decided to start over. I uninstalled 2.5.4, and all other avidemux files.
I re downloaded the 161120_88.
I fixed the permission to allow.
I double click on the downloaded app.
And again, nothing happens. Avidemux does not even open now.

Nope.

So, I've deleted avidemux again, and I'm ready to start over.
Now what? Should I download a different app? Go back to my software manager? (that's how I ended up with 2.5 in the first place).

Can you upload such a jpeg?

I tried, but it was too big for the forum.
QuoteYou can save the jpeg in Gimp as .png, is the png opening in avidemux (installed or app?)

I will try that once I have it installed again with the proper version. Right now I have nothing.

Due to a 32 bit version the only option you have is to build Avidemux from source.

edit: I've already mentioned that this is very easy, though some features might be not available because of your very outdated distribution.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/mean00/avidemux2.git
cd avidemux2
bash createDebFromSourceUbuntu.bash


and have some coffee. Once the .deb packages are ready, the script will ask again for your user password to perform the installation.

It asked for my password before anything, then downloaded a bunch of files, then stopped. It says "Reading package lists... Done".

edit: nevermind...

The first line updates the local package database. Now please run the second.

3d420

I don't understand.  What should I do next?

eumagga0x2a

You've apparently run only the first command out of five:

sudo apt-get update

This command requests the user passwort to update the package database. Once the command has exited, you get the prompt (usually it looks like

[your_username@hostname ~]$

pay attention to the "$" sign!) back. The second command

sudo apt-get install git

installs a tool which will download Avidemux source. The third command

git clone https://github.com/mean00/avidemux2.git

downloads the source into folder "avidemux2", the forth

cd avidemux2

changes directory into the folder "avidemux2" and the last one runs a script which installs build dependencies, compiles Avidemux and installs it.

The run the last command in the list, please:

bash createDebFromSourceUbuntu.bash
