Linux-Cannot Access Drives

PostThu Jan 17, 2019 1:12 am

Although I can run Resolve 15 in a Ubuntu environment, I have found it impossible to access any drives beyond the boot drive and its associated folders. Although these other drives are visible within the system, there appears to be no drop-down that allows one to open files of any kind from within Resolve. It is interesting to note that drag and drop into the Media pool works just fine.

Is there a setup task which I need to complete? Or is this a limitation of the Linux version of Resolve 15?

Image linked is what I encounter when I attempt to access these drives as noted above.

Officially, BMD only specifies Centos and Red Hat Linux in their config specs for Resolve Linux.

Or use Manjaro (arch based).
Don't have any of the problems mentioned in this forum.

- Can access every drive
- Fusion works completely fine (rotoscoping, masks, greenscreen, text, 3D-tracking, 3D merges, tracking etc.)
- Every codec works (GH5 10 bit footage, 6K H265 footage, RED RAW, BRAW, CineDNG, ProRes etc.)
- Neat Video and other OFX plugins
- rendering is faster than on my Windows partition, playback is more consistent

Using a NVIDIA 1080 Ti

Actually that's a Resolve problem being pretty oldschool and not supporting any modern linux standards. It can't see any mounted devices.

You have to figure out where Ubuntu mounts devices and navigate to that folder (it's /run/media/USERNAME on mine)

Did you add those volumes as media storage locations in preferences?

Another idea if all fails, symlink those volumes to the volume that Resolve can see like:

Code: Select all
ln -s /path/to/SomeDrive ~/Somedrive


That will create a link to SomeDrive in the current user home directory. But actually, come think of it, this doesn't have a whole lot of practical value since the SomeDrive is already mounted where you can navigate to. It maybe under /media or /mnt.
