With this new version, you no longer need to download the ZIP file from the Blackmagic Design website. The script does it automatically.

i had to install opencl for it to work. it did not install automaticaly. but even the official read me that comes with it does not mentions you need it. i had to check the debug files.

you might as well do us the favor of add opencl to the dependencies to install this here. it was the opencl for my nvidia drivers, and its dependencies

The way I see the StartupWMClass thing, it is defined within the specification ( and might be useful for some use cases, while not producing negative effects for other ones. I added it to the studio version, as when run from the provided .desktop application link it is working properly. Let's not forget that there are many window managers and desktop environments.

@deezid adding StartupWMClass=resolve does nothing in kde and gnome, it does not resolve a problem of wrong file pinning and icon duplication. To avoid duplication and pixilated icon, just drag a desktop file from /usr/share/applications (not from other place) to latte-dock. Do not pin an icon that appeared in latte-dock after starting application. See this:

@psifidotos: That's exactly what I meant. In Gnome I can't even add the starter to the dock until I add this line to the .desktop file.

I think that @deezid is referring to that issue/fix :

I am the Latte developer and I do not know if that is the case but based on your video I would guess that it is.

Ashark commented on 2019-02-01 04:02

@deezid I still do not got the reason what problem does adding of StartupWMClass=resolve to the desktop file solves. See:

@satriani Thanks for adding tested configurations to pinned comment. Also, lets check dependency list finally. They were made even for version 12, I suspect they could be not required for now. Can you help?

@jose1711 Did you report this issue in the BM forum? I think this looks like a driver problem. Try to uninstall the program completely and install it again.

jose1711 commented on 2019-01-27 15:35


thank you, it builds fine. the program however crashes on start: 'DaVinci Resolve quiet unexpectedly'. anyone has a hint what to check? thanks, j

satriani commented on 2019-01-26 23:38

@jose1711 I'm afraid I forgot in the last update. Now it is fixed.
