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 :)

***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 After removing the outdated version, it is now working as expected (with the exception of the broken download link in the pkgbuild)

dabbill commented on 2016-04-11 17:07

@anthrit - package download location is broken. Correct link I found is http://downloads.lwks.com/lwks-12.6.0-amd64.deb

sshow commented on 2016-04-09 00:15

@anthrit thanks! <3

techwiz24 commented on 2016-02-22 23:37

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/libcurl.so: 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?

LWKS 12.6.0 is available since 4 feb 2016. Can you update package, please?

marcinn commented on 2015-10-18 10:45

Anthrit, I think that unnecessary shouting will not help ;)

I've made a package, based on `lwks` PKBUILD, but with v12.5 and OpenSSL/CURL workarounds to simplify install on ARCH-based systems until LWKS-devs resolve http://dev.lwks.com/issues/397.
It uses CURL 7.38 and OpenSSL 1.0.1-l, so may include some security vulnerabilities, but currently there is no other way to run LWKS on systems with OpenSSL >=1.0.2 installed.

Please check `lwks-openssl` package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lwks-openssl/).

anthrit commented on 2015-10-18 01:20

Please update. We need it NOW!!!!!!

marcinn commented on 2015-10-11 11:57

LWKS 12.5.0 (stable) is out. Can you update package?

marcinn commented on 2015-09-18 12:08

Audio continued... I've noticed some collision with other apps using audio (like chrome` video player). This is strange. It seems that lwks locks audio exclusively (???). Also I've tried `pulse` device instead of `sysdefault` - it works until other app is playing...

Has anyone got any solution?

marcinn commented on 2015-09-18 09:38

I can confirm missing audio with beta 12.5. But after a little investigation I've got sound working. To do that check `~/Lightworks/Logs/error.log`, find audio ports listed by PortAudio, remember # for device named `sysdefault`, and create `~/Lightworks/GlobalSettings.txt` file:

[PortAudio]
OutputDeviceIndex=<sysdefault device #>

derivator commented on 2015-07-12 11:57

Can confirm the workaround mentioned by CharlesAtum works on 12.0.2, using curl 7.41.0-1 (!) and openssl 1.0.1.l-1.

CharlesAtum commented on 2015-07-05 16:40

For anyone having problems due to the openssl and curl lib versions and who doesn't want to downgrade system packages there's the workaround mentioned on http://dev.lwks.com/issues/397#note-2 of copying the needed lib versions from old packages into /usr/lib/lightworks.
If you don't have the packages on your cache then download from the Arch Rollback Machine. Copy the libssl.so* and libcurl.so* from the respectives /usr/lib directories of the .pkg.tar.xz.
I used curl 4.41.0-1 and openssl 1.0.1.l-1 and it worked for me on the beta version, it might work on the stable version as well.

CharlesAtum commented on 2015-07-02 12:53

Uploaded to AUR4 and updated with .SRCINFO for AUR3.

satriani commented on 2015-05-31 16:43

No sound with v.12.5.A/B/C

Cooldezz commented on 2015-03-08 23:08

Lightworks breaks due to the updated openssl. The error has been reported and forwarded to the dev team: http://dev.lwks.com/issues/397

A workaround is downgrading to an earlier version of openssl, with the lastest working release being 1.0.1.l.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Keith_EE commented on 2015-03-04 17:03

I just tried what worked for MTB-BJJ but it did not work for me:

http://pastebin.com/HsFHR5nP

Keith_EE commented on 2015-03-04 16:14

I have the free version and it always worked for me. Last time I used it was 12-23-2014.

When I tried it today, it ran as expected and I had to enter my username and password. But after I hit enter, the sign-in dialogue disappeared and the program never ran.

The link below is the error.log file if it helps, for anyone that has the same symptom as me. But I don't know how to fix it.

Arbite commented on 2015-02-16 21:54

Got It working now.

When lightworks is started on tv-out it forces the nvidia card to be enabled.

optirun lightworks doesn't work.

Now I just have to force nvidia on laptop display without tv-out

Also. Doesn't start without sudo

Arbite commented on 2015-02-16 19:35

i installed

gtk
libstdc++5
libtiff4
libgsf

Still not working,

Messed around with the bumblee nvidia settings, and i got it working but then my xfce4-display-settings didnt work anymore instead so i reinstalled my OS

now its not working again, i have no clue what actually did the trick.

hataketsu commented on 2015-02-02 18:13

I also have same problem with you guys then I try to run it in sudo and it works like a charm. I think maybe there is a error with our folder permission.

MTB-BJJ commented on 2015-01-31 11:39

I had to install the following packages to make it work:
gtk
libstdc++5
libtiff4
libgsf
I had an similar error like described by xione, komitaltrade, nipsky and YAOMTC.
This page helped me to figure it out: https://github.com/bhush9/lightworks-arch

xione commented on 2015-01-02 20:30

As far as I can tell this no longer supports older intel chipsets. The programme runs/starts but there is no graphical response, having to force quit with ALT+F4. Is there a link to an older version or is this now incompatible with arch linux?

komitaltrade commented on 2014-12-29 08:27

Is it possible to expect working version (everything is frozen on startup, entire DE should to be killed).

nipsky commented on 2014-12-23 17:34

Same here, get blank screen (opening in the background, btw) when I open it. No console output and nothing special in ~/Lightworks/Logs/error.log

YAOMTC commented on 2014-12-21 05:46

I installed this, and the screen just goes blank when I run it. I actually have to hit Alt-F4 to exit it, the standard Windows shortcut...? Weird.

I tried running from the terminal to see if I could get any error output, but nothing prints there. Instead of a black screen, I get a frozen image of the desktop with the terminal I tried to run it from, until I hit Alt-F4.

There's some kind of error log for lightworks right?

PieterDeBruijn commented on 2014-10-31 07:08

12.0.1 is final:

orschiro commented on 2014-10-13 21:54

@CharlesAtum

Very nice, thanks!

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-10-11 12:59

For anyone interested in following the betas: you can install the lwks-beta package and I will try my best to maintain it up-to-date.
Also, an interesting fix for the latest beta is: "Fixed memory handling on Linux kernels 3.14 and higher. This resolves the issue with very poor performance".

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-10-01 16:13

I simplified the PKGBUILD a bit. Feel free to point any errors.
I added a conflicts with 'lightworks' because I am almost sure we can't have the stable and beta versions installed at the same time. Also, because other packages with folders named "lightworks" would surely have a file conflict with this one.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-09-30 14:07

The problems I see:
1) provides should be an array, it should be like this: provides = ('lightworks').
2) libtiff4 isn't a dependency anymore. They now support running the newest libtiff.
3) Consider removing that libcurl symlink workaround, that x86_64-linux-gnu folder is surely not the best way of fixing any problem. And the bug it workarounded probably is fixed by now.
4) That command for creating folder never worked. The folders already exist, so it just creates a folder named "{Preferences, Audio Mixes}". Consider using chmod a+rw for giving write-read permissions to them, like the postinst file does.
5) Move the udev folder inside /lib to /usr/lib/, this will make namcap stop complaining.
6) Namcap says that ffmpeg and libgsf aren't needed and the control file also doesn't list them as dependencies, so consider removing them.

PieterDeBruijn commented on 2014-09-30 13:01

Updated to 12.0. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know!

stjhimy commented on 2014-09-30 12:34

Guys, sorry the delay, I'm having to travel a lot because of my work.
I will disown the package right now, hope you guys can take a better care of it.
Thanks.

scriptwarlock commented on 2014-09-26 04:23

any plans for an update? stable release is 12.0

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-08-30 17:27

"The way he proposed the PKGBUILD didn't look nice because he was proposing to replace someelse's work with no further explanation, disvaluing CYB3R's effort."

Sorry also for that, I thought that looking at the PKGBUILD would be enough to see the changes and didn't bother in actually writing them down.
I will remember to actually do that whenever I propose a PKGBUILD change/replacement again.

orschiro commented on 2014-08-30 11:30

> "The way he proposed the PKGBUILD didn't look nice because he was proposing to replace someelse's work with no further explanation, disvaluing CYB3R's effort

Now I understand what you mean. Thanks for explaining.

francescortiz commented on 2014-08-30 07:52

orschiro, compare the difference between saying:

"Why don't you shut up?"

against saying:

"The way he proposed the PKGBUILD didn't look nice because he was proposing to replace someelse's work with no further explanation, disvaluing CYB3R's effort. Now that CharlesAtum made clear what improvements were added it looks nice again. I hope I made myself clear. If not, this shouldn't be discused here."

After all, I proposed to take this conversation somewhere else in both cases.

orschiro commented on 2014-08-30 07:25

@francescortiz

I don't understand why this is interrogating. He proposed a concrete PKGBUILD update.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-08-30 00:52

Sorry for this, I usually ask things when I try to be polite.
Anyway, The PKGBUILD I posted fix some namcap warnings, removes the x86_64-linux-gnu, changes tibtiff4 to libtiff, along with some other things. Feel free to use it as you think it fits.
Also I remember reading somewhere on lwks website about the need of a "number" for each machine on the same license. I wanted to know if it really is still needed on the install file.
Sorry again for saying things in questions.

francescortiz commented on 2014-08-29 22:55

CharlesAtum, this is not your interrogation room. Make proposals if you have any.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-08-29 15:13

@stjhimy Could you replace your PKGBUILD with this one: https://gist.github.com/CharlesAtum/ff75efddc2ddec383127 ?
Also, could you check if creating that random number after install is really needed and explain why?

stjhimy commented on 2014-08-28 19:57

Updated. Sorry the delay.

Lightworks Release 11.5.2 Now Available:

jmeng commented on 2014-07-07 20:16

I'm experiencing the same problem as Nomeji below. Lightworks only runs as root, with the same trap message in system log. I'm thankful for any hints on how to get lwks to work. The system is a laptop, by the way, and it's an optimus system. (Running with optirun/primusrun doesn't help, though.)

orschiro commented on 2014-05-28 18:14

@hippieben

Alright. Thanks for your quick feedback!

hippieben commented on 2014-05-28 17:58

Yes. The app will not launch without it.

orschiro commented on 2014-05-28 16:57

Thanks for packaging!

A quicky question:

Is nvidia-cg-toolkit really needed even if I do not have an Nvidia card?

Thanks!

zorro8k commented on 2014-04-14 15:11

Great thanks for this packaging job. As part time professionnal video editor, I only yet use LW for personnal hobby and a little bit video editing teaching. I'm found of the "software-only" version of LW developped for a few years by Editshare. (Despite the fact that I do need to stay under Avid MC & Adobe PP for the moment, I'd switch under LW with no regrets, if possible in a near future, for most of my work.) I waited so long for such a powerful tool to be available under Linux for advanced video editing.
LW v 11.5.1 (stable) appears fully functional under manjaro 0.8.9 - xfce. Just installed the distro for the first time about 3 hours ago. Then immediately had to get, via AUR : "mudita" (to manage an m-audio audiophile 2496 soundcard which Pulseaudio couldn't as standalone), & Lightworks.
Imported XDCAM-EX rushes into LW projects. And I'm still editing within 2 hours without any problem.

zorro8k commented on 2014-04-14 14:45

TaInstalled Manjaro (not directly Arch... sorry) 2 hours ago. As part-time professional video editor Had to use yaourt to install mudita (pulseaudio alone didn't manage to manage my old m-audio audiphile 2496)

stjhimy commented on 2014-03-08 13:40

beta package here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lwks-beta/

stjhimy commented on 2014-03-08 13:29

Nomeji thanks for notifying me about the beta package, I'm taking care of it right now.

About the issue running lightworks, it works flawless here, have you tried removing and installing again? Thanks.

Nomeji commented on 2014-03-08 12:09

Thanks.

I guess you should create another package for beta releases. Something like lightworks-beta.

I just have a little problem, I can't run lightworks until I use root privilege. If I run it as a normal user, I get this message:
/usr/bin/lightworks: line 35: 3170 Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped) /usr/lib/lightworks/spawn
Am I the only one to get this? Is there something to do like adding the user to a group or make a chmod on a file?

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-03-08 03:42

Looks like there's a new beta.
Will this package follow the beta releases or will we have another package for them?

stjhimy commented on 2014-02-10 12:41

I'm testing if it can be built with portaudio (que version you send the link). I will post results and maybe update the PKGBUILD today.

carstene1ns commented on 2014-02-10 12:32

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/portaudio/ provides and replaces portaudio_cpp.

karol_007 commented on 2014-02-10 08:00

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lightworks/ doesn't list portaudio_cpp dependency.

PieterDeBruijn commented on 2014-02-10 07:42

I'm getting a dep error:
Dependency `portaudio_cpp' of `lwks' does not exist.
Is that this package?
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lib32-portaudio_cpp/
Is this dependancy absolutely necessary?

stjhimy commented on 2014-02-03 21:58

CharlesAtum:

- dependencies are fixed now, also added libtiff4
- permissions and lib location I will be testing tonight and releasing soon

HalosGhost:

- Upstream download fixed, thanks to carstene1ns, overwriting DLAGENTS was brilliant.

11.5-2 released.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-02-03 14:05

Some small problems:
You are creating a /usr/share/lightworks/{Preferences,Audio Mixes} folder instead of fixing the permissions of the existing folders
You forgot to list libgsf and ffmpeg-compat as dependencies
If possible you should move the lib folder inside /usr too because of the udev rules
You shouldn't create the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu folder unless there's no other way for it to work

HalosGhost commented on 2014-02-03 14:03

Downloading source from upstream would be significantly preferable compared to a third-party location. This should be changed ASAP.

All the best,

HalosGhost commented on 2014-02-03 13:59

Downloading source from upstream would be significantly preferable than downloading from a third-party location. That really should be changed.

All the best,

carstene1ns commented on 2014-02-03 13:57

Btw. you can download from their homepage by sending the correct referer of their download page, just overwrite DLAGENTS in your PKGBUILD like this:

source=("http://www.lwks.com/dmpub/lwks-$pkgver-amd64.deb")
DLAGENTS="http::/usr/bin/curl --referer "http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_lwks&view=download&Itemid=206" -O %u"

stjhimy commented on 2014-02-03 07:41

Updated to 11.5.

a few notes:

- I did managed to automate the download process using a dropbox account to upload the .deb file.
- Ping me here of email if anything goes wrong.

Thanks.

hippieben commented on 2014-02-03 03:25

Excellent! Thank you both CYB3R and stjhimy!

stjhimy commented on 2014-02-02 19:18

Ok, I got the package maintainer responsibility. I will be releasing 11.5 tomorrow morning, around 10 AM (GMT -3). Thanks.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-01-31 01:29

@hippieben Well, you should send an e-mail first for the current maintainer asking him to orphan the package if he's not going to update it himself. If you don't get a reply then make an orphaning request on the mailing list.

Also, if you are going to maintain it you should take a look on the lwks.install file. Can someone confirm if this machine.num file is really needed?

For maintaining here are a few tips I can give you that I discovered after exploring inside .deb files:
Inside the .deb you will see three files: debian-binary, data.tar.gz and control.tar.gz.
The data.tar.gz will be extracted to the pkgdir.
Insde control.tar.gz you will find two important files:
- postinst: Saying what should be done after installing (use the post_install function on a .install file)
- control: Package info. Here are some of the dependencies, you should use ldd or namcap for more.

And another bug to fix: the /usr/share/lightworks/{Preferences,Audio Mixes} folder

Seeing as how lightworks is an application that I will be using indefinitely I would be willing to take it. I just have to read on what I'd have to do to responsibly maintain it.

Also 11.5 has been released.

CharlesAtum commented on 2014-01-30 22:46

Shouldn't we request the orphanage of this package on the mailing list so someone else can adopt it? The original maintainer didn't update it since a long time.

Glinx commented on 2014-01-23 10:05

@jevonearth Seems it dosnt like gnome3 based DE...
I'm using the latest version. I just used "I just updated the version number, and the deb file sha hash" ;-) Many thanks.

jevonearth commented on 2014-01-21 16:15

@Glinx yes, when I tried to use this last year, performance was very poor.

FYI, there was a new linux release just a few days ago: http://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=19&id=61043&Itemid=81



Glinx commented on 2014-01-21 16:12

Is anyone experiencing laggy/very slow performance with lightworks?

Updated PKGBUILD for 11.5.C also changed libtiff4 to libtiff. You will have to activate manually though via lwks.com/activations

Ok. I didn't know how Aura works. But is not hard to write on the terminal: makepkg -S.

jevonearth commented on 2013-05-30 23:15

@esevece No I have not. My focus was on using Aura. It seems that your approach in this PKGBUILD is not compatible with Aura, or, Aura is not compatible with your approach. :)

I have opened an issue over on the aura github page too: https://github.com/fosskers/aura/issues/107

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-30 22:54

@jevonearth
Sorry, I have not understood.

Have you tried putting the file in the same directory that the package?
I don't use Aura, but maybe Aura copies the file to the temporal directory mentioned (/var/cache/pacman/pkg/lwks*/lwks)

jevonearth commented on 2013-05-30 22:47

@esevece Yes, I registered, and I have the correct file downloaded.

As I said, ever time I run 'aura -A lwks', it tells me to put the lwks-11.1.H-amd64.deb in a different directory.

1st run: /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lwks31548/lwks
3rd run: /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lwks32069/lwks
2nd run: /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lwks32122/lwks


As you can see, the number portion appears to correlate with the process ID of aura.

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-30 22:40

Are you puting the file required? Because you have to apply for access to the beta version in lwks.com

jevonearth commented on 2013-05-30 22:36

Can't install this using aura. It tells me to drop the lwks-11.1.H-amd64.deb file into directory /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lwks28175/lwks where 28175 appears to be the PID of aura, so next time I run the command, it looks in a new directory. I can't predict what the pid will be.

Full output pasted below. I guess no one here is using aura to install lwks?

The package "nvidia-cg-toolkit" is not optional.

mrunion commented on 2013-05-12 02:37

It appears the data.tar.gz is damaged. I tried downloading it 24 hours apart and it still seems damaged for some reason.

mrunion commented on 2013-05-12 02:35

Is anyone now getting

Anonymous comment on 2013-05-12 01:24

libtiff4 hasn't to be a dependency. Because libtiff4 is not in the repositories.
Maybe the package can create a symbolic link to /usr/lib/libtiff.so.

francescortiz commented on 2013-05-10 11:05

I found what causes the error startup error: JACK sound server. By stopping jack portaudio does not raise an error and the program starts. I found that in ~/Lightworks/Logs/StdErr.log

francescortiz commented on 2013-05-10 08:55

I am stuck here:

usr/lib/lightworks/ntcardvt: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/lightworks/libOSPrivate.so)

Also, it would be nice that somewhere in the description it said the word lightworks to help people find the package. In example:

"Lightworks: a professional video editing software"

foolishgrunt commented on 2013-05-04 19:23

I second Rayjingstorm - nvidia-cg-toolkit should be moved from optdepends to depends. Program wouldn't start for me without the package. Installing it fixed the problem, and I'm not using an Nvidia card.

scott-linder commented on 2013-05-04 02:01

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to report this, but this package should also depend on 'nvidia-cg-toolkit' from community, because the `spawn` executable links to libCg.so and libCgGL.so

Thanks a million for the package, everything else is working great.

Wow, great fixes! You are a pkgbuild guru :)

I moved download message out of the package function (so it will be displayed) and removed makedepends as all belong to base or base-devel. Also included fixes from the comments below: https://gist.github.com/aldrik/5508587

Just got back and updated everything.
Any problems with this package now?

@Fri13 I suppose, you were reading the text of proprietary licence, so can I redistribute the beta package?

@mrunion Try reinstalling openssl, I guess this should help.

mrunion commented on 2013-05-03 01:10

I was using the Beta (11.1.H). I get this:

[code[
/usr/lib/lightworks/ntcardvt: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/lightworks/libOSPrivate.so)

I assume I am missing something?

Working solution posted on lwks forum by specialworld83:

I can't get past the first screen, I enter the username and password I set up at the lwks site but I only get this error:

ERROR 4 .../5 ... Cannot connect to licensing server.

Anyone else have this issue? I'm using Sarkasper's PKGBUILD and the public beta .deb

Scias commented on 2013-04-30 16:47

portaudio_cpp is needed too else it will crash on startup (about the newly released beta version)

"Maybe I should include deb file into the AUR package (it is almost 45Mb) because I can't locate any direct links to it."

You can not. The alpha version of lwks for Linux is under license what disallow distributing it to anyone else than alpha testing members (what is required to be joined trough application first).

So please, if we respect closed source licensing and they will need to respect open source licenses.
