If you want to run a video editor on Ubuntu you have a lot of good  
choices to pick from - all of them free.

For cuts only there is avidemux, kdenlive and Projectx, all work well.

If you want to get fancy there is Cinelerra, a really full-blown pro- 
quality editor that can do just about anything you want as far as  
special effects etc. Only real problem is that the learning curve is  
pretty steep.
