In this quick-and-dirty how-to we’re installing DaVinci Resolve 17 on Debian 10. This should also work with Ubuntu 20.04 and derivatives.
1. Install xorriso and fakeroot
sudo apt install fakeroot xorriso
2. Install NVIDIA proprietary drivers (optional)
sudo apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-opencl-icd libcuda1 libnvidia-encode1
3. Create the *.deb package.
4. Install DaVinci Resolve 17
sudo dpkg -i davinci-resolve-studio_17.0b1-mrd1.4.0_amd64.deb
After all that (and a reboot if you installed the NVIDIA drivers) you should have a fully operational DaVinci Resolve 17. Keep in mind that it’s currently in beta so don’t use it in production and expect bugs.
