I got the 14.5 linux installer from LWKS support.

sudo dpkg -i lightworks-14.5.0-amd64.deb

It didn't instyall directly from the first attempt, complaining about a dependency.

Since first install attempt was incomplete, I removed the partially deployed package using the generic command below and following the instructions.

sudo apt-get -f install

The dependency itself was libc++1 version >= 1.0

sudo apt-get install libc++1

Then retrying LWKS install still doesn't work because it complains libc++1 is not the proper version. I got 1.0~svnXXXXXXXX.
So step 2 again, then:

sudo dpkg -i lightworks-14.5.0-amd64.deb --ignore-depends=libc++1

After that I started LWKS just fine and it worked nicely.
Tested with existing project.
Tested with a new project, import files, make sequence, make an export.
No hitches. I hope there won't be any at a later time either.

Thank you.

This kinda leaves the system in an intermediate state. apt-get will still complain that lightworks is incompletely installed and would want to remove it. For me this is not an issue because my system is stable and I am not interested in other updates for it. If however some updates would be required, do read apt-get docs on how to retain lightworks while applying updates, or just reinstall it using the above workaround.

As I mentioned, distro version upgrade is not a viable option for me because of problems with video drivers in newer distro versions, which I was unable to solve (ATI drivers work best on 14.04, regular X11 drivers only show 800x600, was unable to deploy ATI drivers on later distro)
