Lightworks & Flowblade vs cmake

Parrot Security 4.1


I can’t install Lightworks or Flowblade w/o removing cmake, which depends on libcurl4. Lightworks & Flowblade depend on libcurl3. There are clearly several solutions. I’m not part of your dev team; so I don’t know which one(s) are the most elegant or attractive. You could offer LW & FB in a flatpak or an appimage, or you could do the same for cmake, etc. I code on the same box; and I need cmake. I can’t live w/o it.

I really really really want to install LW.

Thanks, Val XOXO

Amazingly, I managed to fix this one.


I added Flatpak support, gnome-software in synaptic, then I added Flowblade as a Flatpak.


The lovely gentleman at Lightworks Forum offered this advice.

The latest 14.5 release candidate has no libcurl dependency so you should be able to use it without any problem in future

Happy to say it installs lie a dream and works like a charm!
