    Are you having trouble installing programs for ubuntu? All you need to do is go to the "ubuntu software center" app and search for the programs you want. You can even download the tarballs of the packages that you want.

    You should should upgrade to 10.04 LTS to have better support for all packages available.

    There are no license charges in Linux, unless you specifically pay for a custom program. Why are you having problems installing programs like Cinerella? What happens when you try to install them?

    Have you tried with the instructions on there page?

    http://cinelerra.org/getting_cinelerra.php#ubuntu

    You have to add that PPA to your sources list.

    Okay so before anything, you should really try to upgrade to a more recent Ubuntu. 10.04 Long Term Support would be a good choice. It could very well be possible that the Ubuntu you are running doesn't support any of the programs you're trying to use. Hope this helps :)

    During installation, just tell the installer to use the Ubuntu 11.04 partitions and it will replace 11.04 with Ubuntu Studio.

    Edit: it should detect and set up the dual boot for windows 7 automatically, just as it did when you installed 11.04.
  • thanks on and all for your help i am successfully on ubuntu studio as of yesterday

    @woboyle i do not have cinelerra installed by default
    any advice

    although i have followed instructions on conelerra website already
