Install Lightworks 15 on Ubuntu 17.10

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Hi, the Lightworks video editing program on the official website has two versions: 14 and 15,
now on ubuntu 17.10 for the 14 there are tricks to do to make it work and find various guides googolando, while instead the version 15 is designed for ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10.
Trying alone I found this solution that I share with you:
1) go to the official website https://www.lwks.com login or register

2) download the beta version
3) open a terminal (ctrl + t) and write to us
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
give and send the password even if you can not see it and send it again
4) assuming that you have downloaded Lightworks-145RC4-105935-14.5.0.0.deb in the download folder we give in the terminal
cd Download

dpkg-deb –extract Lightworks-145RC4-105935-14.5.0.0.deb estrazione-deb
dpkg-deb -e Lightworks-145RC4-105935-14.5.0.0.deb estrazione-deb/DEBIAN
5) DO NOT CLOSE THE TERMINAL; now let’s go with the file manager in the Downloads / extraction-deb / DEBIAN folder and open the file controll,
now let’s replace libcurl4 with libcurl4-openssl-dev
save the file and close
6) we return to the already opened terminal and we give
dpkg-deb -b estrazione-deb
sudo dpkg -i estrazione-deb.deb

7) now in the main ubuntu menu we search and start Lightworks
here we enter our login data as in the site! #END

Good video editing
