This worked well on 3.2.2 Ubuntu 20.10. Recommended.
First import video with:They don't have an
aegisubexecutable without the version number. Amazing.
If you already have a subtitle file that you want to edit, then just pass it on as well:
aegisub-3.2 ourbigbook-parent.mkv ourbigbook-parent.ass
Ctrl + P: play and pause video.
Ctrl + 3: set current substitle start time.
Ctrl + 4: set current substitle end time.
Enter: finish editing the current entry and start a new one.
