After trying the Arch User Install for Cinelerra where you modify the pacman.conf file, that failed with missing libraries. Then I tried git install using git clone. Failed to compile with errors.
Troubleshooting either of the above is above my pay grade at the moment.

So, on to the AUR (Arch User Repository)
I installed yay, then did yay -S cin-git, which should install Cinelerra-GG.

Let's see how that goes.

Hi,
for Arch there are dependencies that are not installed automatically. Their absence leads to installation errors. Check if you have all the dependencies on this file:
https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/download/README.arch

Yes, I read the instructions for Arch and those are all installed, also ran across python2 missing and possibly openexr missing. Compiling. Again 😉

For compilig from Git I use the follows steps:

$ git clone --depth 1 "git://git.cinelerra-gg.org/goodguy/cinelerra.git" cinelerra5
$ cd /home/USER/cinelerra5/cinelerra-5.1
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --without-oss --with-single-user --with-booby
$ make && make install 2>&1 | tee cin5.log

And starting from terminal:

$ /home/UDER/cinelerra5/cinelerra-5.1/bin/./cin

I still got errors compiling the AUR. I am going to create a new VM, install the dependencies from: 

https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/download/README.arch

and then try the git method you used, as I see you added some switches I did not know about.

Old Cinelerra-CV was taken out of Arch's repository:
https://lists.cinelerra-cv.org/pipermail/cinelerra/2018q4/010726.html
The same goes for Cinelerra-GG.
I do not recommend using cin-git from AUR, for the same reasons expressed in the email.
It's better to compile ourselves by git or use the binaries prepared every month by GG.
Note that not using Arch's repositories doesn't lead to problems; we don't even have to be root for the installation!

About my ./config:

--prefix=/usr
This is from GG. Actually, it works for me without it.

--without-oss
Never used the OSS sound server; I take it out, but leaving it is the same. --with-single-user
Recommended by GG (and manual)

--with-booby
Serves GG: in case of problems provides additional info in the log.

Note: instead of using my steps, after downloading and entering the CinGG folder, you can run the GG script:


$ bld.sh
