Linux distributions have OpenSource graphics card drivers installed by default. This means Lightworks will not run correctly (images of the incorrect size during playback and possible performance problems). It is strongly recommended for users to install the proprietary graphics card drivers before installing Lightworks.

Below are guidelines for installing the proprietary graphics drivers for your system. These may be different depending on your distro and EditShare accept no responsibility for any problems caused.
