I don't Know why but I've just installed Light works on ubuntu 15.10 and it refuses to play the time line - I've even installed the quick time codec (G-streamer codecs) but to no avail???

please help as I'm tearing my hair out and my head is about to explode!

my system is

Ubuntu 15.10
8GB ram
500GB HDD
Intel Pentium Duo Core @ 2.80Ghz
AMD Cedar Graphics

First, welcome to the forums. Unfortunately, though, I have bad news for you. The system requirements that you'll find under the products tab on this website will tell you why.

  • Intel i7 chipset or faster, fast AMD chipset
  • 3GB RAM or higher
  • PCI Express graphics card (NVIDIA or ATI) with 1GB or higher
  • Separate media and system drives (these can be internal or external as long as the interface is suitably fast
  • Compatible sound card
  • 200MB Disk space for Lightworks installation

As you can see a Pentium Duo Core processor doesn't meet the minimum system requirements, and it's doubtful whether the AMD card would either. The separate system and media drives are mandatory in my opinion, because otherwise you can get severe I/O bottlenecks. That in itself could cause your problem even if there were no other issues.

I don't know what to suggest to get you over your problem. If you borrow a fast external hard drive for your media - USB 3 or better - and try that it may help, but I can't guarantee that the other shortcomings of your system won't still limit you.
