Previous Maintainer finally gave up the package. I am now the new Maintainer. I am a daily user of this program for my YouTube channel and plan to keep it updated. Hope you all enjoy this well overdue update. I know I will :)

FYI package can be found here

portaudio-19_20140130-3 works for me

@anthrit, there is confirmation that putting older's into /usr/lib/lightworks solves the issue without downgrading system-wide library. Could you make a patch, please?

Ligthworks is not compatible with the newest PortAudio library ((190600_20161030-1). Here is more info:

I think that embedding older libportaudio*.so's directly in /usr/lib/lightworks/ may be a decent workaround (this must be verified) until EditShare release an official patch.

I'm getting an Internal Error whilst trying to login on a 64bit install.

Any ideas?

I have amd graphics card and propietary drivers. After the release of linux 4.7 I won't be able anymore to update fglrx and I'll use amdgpu opensource drivers. To use lwks I had to install fglrx. Does anyone know if lightworks will work after the upgrade?

***Noob alert***
Lightworks seams to install just fine no errors but when it is launched it hangs on "Loading plugin modules.."
If I click on the loading window the program terminates.

Has anyone seen this issue? How was it solved?

In response to my own comment on 2016-02-22, it seems I had some custom version of libssl and libcrypto installed to try and mitigate the problem. After removing the outdated version, it is now working as expected (with the exception of the broken download link in the pkgbuild)

@anthrit - package download location is broken. Correct link I found is

Hmm, I still seem to be having problems related to openssl/curl.

Upon trying to "log in", the process exits "normally", but this is in my StdErr.log:

/usr/lib/lightworks/ntcardvt: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/ undefined symbol: SSL_CTX_set_alpn_protos

I have curl Version 7.47.1-1 and openssl Version 1.0.2.f-1.

Anyone else having this problem?
