Install DaVinci Resolve 17 On Debian & Ubuntu

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.

Software:
DaVinci Resolve 17
MakeResolveDeb

 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.

./makeresolvedeb_1.4.0_multi.sh DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_17.0b1_Linux.run

4. Install DaVinci Resolve 17

sudo dpkg -i davinci-resolve-studio_17.0b1-mrd1.4.0_amd64.deb

Final bits:
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.
