After discovering the the fairly ancient Debian package for PiTiVi is broken (segfaults when video is drug to the timeline) and that it had been fixed in a newer version a couple years ago, I decided that I should try installing from source.

Since I installed pitivi via apt-get and removed it afterwards, the dependencies were met

I tried compiling 0.13.3 and 0.13.4 both and while they compile just fine, neither one of them works.

$ pitivi
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/pitivi", line 118, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/bin/pitivi", line 111, in _run_pitivi
    import pitivi.application as ptv
  File "pitivi/", line 33, in <module>
    from pitivi.pitivigstutils import patch_gst_python
  File "pitivi/", line 30, in <module>
ImportError: No module named audio

For both versions.  I have seen a few threads regarding this problem with Debian machines, but nobody ever concluded on a solution.  Other users have said in the past that there appears to be a broken dependency, but nobody acknowledged even understanding where or why.

Has anybody found a solution for this problem?  I've had a hell of a time getting PiTiVi to work.
