I have just installed Avidemux 2.5.4 which is the current version in the repository .Whilst looking in tutorials I read that it had been updated to deal with a problem I have . Searching the Web there is a newer version that  has been out for over 12 months

Not familiar with this, A quick Google seems to imply it's straight forward:

Avidemux Install:
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/04/install-the-latest-avidemux-2-6-8-in-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

BUT The following seems to imply on Ubuntu 14.04, which is what LL2 is based on,
That you need to change a Config/List file.
I don't know enough on what the implications are then for LL2.?

Avidemux on Ubuntu 14.04, Variation.?

Thanks
 Used the
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/04/install-the-latest-avidemux-2-6-8-in-ubuntu-14-04-lts/

Link which has worked OK except for an Error on installation. I totally removed it and  to get rid of the glitch and it installed OK .

Other than a Picture size problem probably because of my small net-book screen size it is working OK to remove unwanted parts ,
I cannot resize the Window  to view the the Menu Bar and the Video controls together . At present I use "Alt" +"Left Click" + "Touchpad" to move the window to the part I need to set a clip and execute it . Anyone Know how to resize a window below Minimum or an easier way to get all the Window in view .

Hello!

The issue you ran into makes a good case to go elsewhere besides the repositories (i.e. PPA) to get the newest updates.

I guess the repositories don't want to have to deal with the whole 'bleeding edge' issue, where something works until it's updated, then requires more action to 'fix' the updates...
