I download the Linux version, from the site https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve   on to my Linux Only OS desktop.  It arrived as ZIP file, I unzipped it it created another folder titled Davinci_Resolve_12.5.5_Linux.   I realize I need to open my Terminal and type in Command, since I have been playing with Linux for only about 4 months and have bad memory, I cannot remember how to install something, and searching YouTube, there is No instructional video on installing this program to be found.


I do need help here, Thanks

Hi Palladini


You "showed us your desktop" a few months ago, it was a Linux Mint Cinnamon.


Can you tell us the version?


Best would be to provide the output of the following Terminal commands:

cat /etc/*release*

BTW - not saying (yet) that I can help here, but it helps to know what you are using.

Also be aware that

  1. The H.264 codec is available under the Windows version but not the Linux, and
  2. If you have an nVidia GPU but are using the generic Nouveau driver, you will need to change it to nVidia, as the Nouveau is not supported.

See how you go
