Fusion with Linux mint 18.2 (Linux newb install)

PostWed Nov 15, 2017 5:58 pm

Im new to Linux and having trouble running Fusion on the Mint distro. ( Does it only work for centOS? )

I extracted the download and ran the installer .
When i loaded Fusion up it would crash the moment i created a loader or tried to drop an image sequence in .
It also crashed when i went into preferences and tried to select the opencl section .
I then installed opencl after reading an earlier post about linux with version 8.2 . I was then able to view my gtx 970 in the opencl preferences . Im still crashing when trying to drop a image sequence, loader, merge and other nodes .
The 3d merge didnt crash it though.

Have you set ffmpeg up? viewtopic.php?f=22&t=62308&p=367661#p367587

I'm using Mint 18.x, xfce, and once I had ffmpeg set up it has generally been working smoothly. I have gtx 1070, but haven't touched the OpenCL preferences (They are "auto", "full" and "auto"; I've not actually been paying attention to if it is using gpu or cpu.)

I think i have ffmpeg up . I do not usually load codecs in Fusion . Only image sequences . If i try and drop one jpeg in it will crash . Also if i drop a merge , fast noise , loader it will crash .
When i load it from the terminal and drop a node i know will crash it i get this .

I have just about the same messages as you (except for the last three, of course). I have ffmpeg 57.107.100 (from https://launchpad.net/~jonathonf/+archi ... u/ffmpeg-3 )
Kernel is 4.10.0-21, and I have the nvidia proprietary packages installed.

My Kernel is 4.8.0-53, and I have the nvidia proprietary packages installed aswell . Maybe i installed it wrong ?
I installed from the terminal using sudo . But i still crash instantly when adding a loader , fast noise or a merge node .
I installed the Cuda kit aswell
