Install DaVinci Resolve 16 On Debian 10 (NVIDIA)

In this quick-and-dirty how-to we’re installing DaVinci Resolve 16 on Debian 10. This guide is intended for Nvidia (CUDA) based systems and will not work with Intel or AMD.

DaVinci Resolve 16

1. Open /etc/apt/sources.list with a text editor, and append “contrib non-free” to each source.

deb buster main contrib non-free
deb-src buster main contrib non-free

deb buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src buster/updates main contrib non-free

# buster-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb buster-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src buster-updates main contrib non-free

2. Update the repositories.

sudo apt update

3. Install the required dependencies.

sudo apt install libcuda1 nvidia-driver xorriso nvidia-opencl-icd fakeroot

4. Create a symlink so Resolve can find CUDA.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib64/

5. Reboot!

6. Create the *.deb package.

./ lite

7. Install the *.deb package.

sudo dpkg -i davinci-resolve_16.0-1_amd64.deb
