Learn how to install Aegisub, the video subtitle editor for Ubuntu and its derivatives.
If you need to subtitle a video and don't know which program to use on your Linux, Aegisub can help you with this task. In this article we will show how to install it on Ubuntu and derivatives.
Since Ubuntu no longer makes binary available in its universal repositories, we will have to add the official developer ppa, which is quite simple to do.
The PPA that we are going to add this one ppa: alex-p / aegisub and we can do it in two ways.
The first via graphical interface, so much so that we made a tutorial on how to do that, you can access this article to see.
The other way to install it via terminal, but the procedure is quite simple, just press the key combination Ctrl + Alt + T and type the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa: alex-p / aegisub -y
sudo apt update
sudo apt install aegisub -y
Just wait for the installation to finish and access Aegisub through your district's menu.
Aegisub has 3 ways you can use to subtitle videos, as we can see in the images below.
The first image shows that you can configure subtitles by changing its color, style using the method through html configuration. And you have a preview of how the subtitle is going.
The second way you can use it is to use audio timing built into it along with the first option so you can make the necessary adjustments to the audio.
The third way is using audio timing with the advanced subtitle editor settings.
For more application functions and tricks, you can access their manual through this site. And if you were curious to see more alternatives on how to subtitle videos, check out this other article from the site. =)
Until next time and a big hug.
