HowTo: cinelerra videoeditor

Wonder that a creativ lab don't serves cinelerra in the repositorys. It's exential for professional videoediting.
You get that stuff for 64 bit machines here:

sources are to download here

The website with that links and a documentation you find here:

Open a terminal (normaly you can push the keys alt + Strg + T but not in Sparky - why ?????)
sudo  apt-get install libpng12-0
Make this first.

If you have downloaded  cinelerra 7, unzip this package, (right click and choose unzip) in a folder of your choice. So you get a new folder called bin, and in there are all files cinelerra need to work fine.  Open a terminal in this folder called bin (right click and choose ...terminal) and do:

I tried to build it, but failed.
