Problem:
/usr/lib/lightworks/ntcardvt: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution:
Download and install the latest Lightworks 14.6 (2020.1 or newer). Note: since revision 117868 Lightworks has got support for Ubuntu 19.04:
  1. sudo dpkg -i Lightworks-14.6.0.0-Beta-117868.deb
  2. sudo apt-get -f install
  3. OK, let's start it:
  4. cd /tmp
  5. wget archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libj/libjpeg-turbo/libjpeg-turbo8_2.0.1-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb
  6. mkdir libjpeg
  7. dpkg --extract libjpeg-turbo8_2.0.1-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb libjpeg
  8. ls libjpeg/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.8.2.2
  9. The last command you should get in response:
    libjpeg/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.8.2.2
    Ok, let's continue:
  10. sudo cp libjpeg/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.8.2.2 /usr/lib/lightworks/
  11. sudo ln -s /usr/lib/lightworks/libjpeg.so.8.2.2 /usr/lib/lightworks/libjpeg.so.8
  12. lightworks

Profit!

Excellent in-depth instructions. Worked like a charm. Saved a lot of head scratching.

Many thanks for posting.

Of course, you're aware that 14.6 betas are no longer available, aren't you? They have been superseded by 2020.1

Hello,

Issues when installing beta release is one thing, it should work with tvword's instructions on Debian 10, issues when running beta releases another one.

There are known issues, even with current 2020, and there might be some unknown as well. Watch out for new releases and install and run always the most recent.

If you should encounter issues, please report in the Linux beta forums.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...
