Hmm, works on 13.04 (alpha or beta or whatever) At least it opens. There
is quite a lot of output to the terminal when I start it from there. SO
open a terminal and start openshot from there (type openshot and enter)
and see what gets output. That may tell you something... core dump may not
be so helpful :( Anyway, after that if it has not started, ubuntu-bug
openshot will gather info and file a bug report.

The only other thing I can think of is to open the setting manager and
from Window Manager Tweaks try disabling the display compositing.

Are you using the stock (open) video drivers, or a proprietary driver?
That may make a difference too.
