- Install a repository using this link. After you download the package make sure you install it with the GDebi package installer.
- Open a terminal and type this command: sudo apt-get update
- Now decide which package you need; cinelerra (x86 and x86_64 without opengl 2.0 video card) cinelerra-generic (x86 and x86_64 with opengl 2.0 video card). You can see the other versions on the page I mentioned earlier under the installation instructions for Hardy
- Install your package using apt-get: sudo apt-get install cinelerra-generic
- Once installation completes you should be able to find Cinelerra under Applications>Sound & Video.

Recently I have needed to do some video editing and wanted to check out some of the best video editors for Linux. It looked like Cinelerra had the best options but it was not clear how to install it easily. I did not want to install from source so after some careful searching around I found the easy way. You can also view these instructions here (I made some additions as they did not work for me as they were written).
