    Question How to get Davinci Resolve installed?

    I have used DR on many systems and I just switched to the latest Ubuntu.

    My system has the Ryzen 9 7950X and the Radeon 7900XTX.

    I downloaded the zip file and ran it, but it says I am missing files.

    Please install the following missing packages:
    libapr1 libaprutil1 libasound2 libglib2.0-0
    So I went to install the files through the terminal and I got this message

    sudo apt install libapr1 libaprutil1 libasound2 libglib2.0-0
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting 'libapr1t64' instead of 'libapr1'
    Note, selecting 'libaprutil1t64' instead of 'libaprutil1'
    Note, selecting 'libglib2.0-0t64' instead of 'libglib2.0-0'
    Package libasound2 is a virtual package provided by:
    liboss4-salsa-asound2 4.2-build2020-1ubuntu3
    libasound2t64 1.2.11-1build2 (= 1.2.11-1build2)
    You should explicitly select one to install.


    E: Package 'libasound2' has no installation candidate
    Can anyone help me in getting DR to install, please.

    Thanks

    Those are already installed, but I still get the errors

    Then either it really wants the corresponding -dev packages or something is wrong with the installer.
    Code:
    sudo apt install libapr1-dev libaprutil1-dev libasound2-dev libglib2.0-dev
    If it still doesn't work, then you should probably ask on the DR forum, or give a link to the specific .zip you are talking about (assuming it's free) so we can investigate more.

    Re: How to get Davinci Resolve installed?

    I'm going to move from Mint to Ubuntu 22.04.4 HWE which is what my AMD GPU Drivers will be looking for.

    Saw a YouTube video showing a massive amount of work through the terminal to get DR working on Ubuntu 24.04 but mentioned DR runs on 22.04.

    I see this in the post:

    sudo apt install libapr1-dev libaprutil1-dev libasound2-dev libglib2.0-dev


    Is this a list of dependencies that need to be loaded via the terminal prior to installing DR via the .run file?

    I'm running DR 19.3 Studio

    In Mint I had 4 or 5 dependencies like that.

    Mint (21) is based on Ubuntu 22.04, uses the same kernel, etc. So I don't see a point to that.

    Re: How to get Davinci Resolve installed?

    Okay so you triggered me to research some more and it looks like I will stay with Mint!

    Sounds like Mint 22 is on the way with some nice updates.

    From what I saw Ubuntu has undesirable tendencies coming from management. Didn't read too much into it.

    My main thing was having a system that my new GPU, entire new machine build, will be compatible with.

    Then my only hurdle is keeping Davinci Resolve running which I do fairly well with right here on Mint.

    Still struggling?

    Are you running 24.04?

    Here's the AMD Driver specs: Radeon™ Software for Linux® version 24.10.3 for Ubuntu 20.04.6 HWE

    I did see a video showing all the hoops to jump through to get Davinci running on 24.04 but then heard 1 short sentence saying DR will work with 22.04.

    That was all I needed to hear.

    I also got enlightened when saying I was going to Ubuntu 22.04 from Mint and was told Mint runs on the same 22.04 so I can just stay with Mint.

    These are the dependencies I installed to get DR19.3 Studio running on Mint Cinnamon 21.3:

    sudo apt install libapr1 libaprutil1 libxcb-composite0 libxcb-cursor0 libxcb-damage0

    PS: I did have GPU issues updating to DR 19.4 so had to go back to 19.3
