Ubuntu bionic (18.04)

Post by webstoney »

The ppa doesn't seem to have 1.3.0 for bionic, although the docs say there is support for it.

Any special reason why there is no ppa for 18.04?

Bionic's libraries are too old at this point. If you want to run the latest versions of HandBrake on bionic, you'll have to use our flatpak releases.

download handbrake flatpak installer from https://handbrake.fr/rotation.php?file= ... 64.flatpak
from same directory, run-

Code: Select all

sudo flatpak install HandBrake-1.3.0-x86_64.flatpak
pretty easy

Another question to the bionic HandBrake release:

As far as I understand the version listing at launchpad.net, version 1.2.1 should be available for bionic via ppa (1:1.2.1-zhb-1ppa1~bionic1). My entry in the sources on my machine seems also to be correct: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ses/ubuntu bionic main

But I am stuck on version 1.1.1 on my machine (fully patched Mint 19.3). The only thing I couldn't figure out so far is the meaning of the "1:" in the ppa version entry. Does this somehow prevent the version 1.2.1 update?

Btw thanks for this cool piece of software called HandBrake!!!
