Davinci resolve not starting

Some people might have problems running davinci resolve.
This is because Blackmagic ships dr with an outdated Glib.

To fix this issue type the following script into the terminal (Courtesy of u/Familiar_Ad_8919)

sudo cp /usr/lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0 /opt/resolve/libs/

what this does is replace the outdated file with the system installed one.

sudo cp /usr/lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0 /opt/resolve/libs/

Now you can run dr, but you will still get a white box on your screen. the code for the welcome screen is broken and you will need to close it.
after you do, run dr again and you will be greeted by the loading fairlight page.

after it has loaded you can start a new project.
now you can start editing video’s on dr without needing to switch to a new editing software.

The reason on why dr breaks can be found by going to ~/opt/resolve/bin/ and running ./resolve via terminal. the issue here is this “undefined symbol: g_string_free_and_steal” this is what causes the program to not actually work, and the only fix i’ve found was the script that that i mentioned before.

also here’s a link to the reddit thread on where i found the script.


And I was about to test this today for an upcoming video montaz for EUC’s…

Thank you for your time.
I’ll report back if I stumble upon anything worth noting
