Flatpak Request for LightWorks

Project information: LightWorks is a video editing software. It has a Free plan, Create Plan and a Pro Plan. LightWorks is available on Linux, but it is only in DEB and RPM packages.

Name: LightWorks

Homepage: https://lwks.com/


Upstream has been contacted:


I started working on a Flatpak package for Lightworks based on the .deb package.

LWKS Forum discussion here.

LWKS made a change to the way Lightworks works such that it can run inside of Flatpak now. It seems to work well from my brief testing.

If anyone wants to try it out and let me know if there are any bugs (with the Lightworks Console, for example!), here’s what you need to do:

  1. Backup your Lightworks Projects. The Flatpak will use the same ~/Lightworks data directory as the upstream package.
  2. Download the lightworks.flatpak file from the Releases page in my repository.
  3. Install it (flatpak install lightworks.flatpak).
  4. Run it and test it. From the CLI, flatpak run com.lwks.Lightworks.

If you find any bugs, let me know here: Issues · kekkoudesu/lightworks-flatpak · GitHub

(patches also welcome)

Amazing, that’s great to hear.
