My work PC has an Intel HD Graphics 5500, it is a Lenovo t450.

DaVinci Resolve 16 doesn't work on it. I'm using Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS. I've tried to install makeresolvedeb, but it still doesn't work and shows me this message:

DaVinci Resolve could not find any OpenCL capable GPUs. Would you like to review and update your DaVinci Resolve Hardware Configuration?

Any help?

  • Update Now DaVinci Resolve 17 works onUbuntu Studio 20.04 LTS, but medias wont import. Any solution to this? I already tried all codec and format of video. BTW thanks for the help.

Now I would like to post this as a comment but I can't yet... Here are some steps that you can start with:

  • Do you have libOpenCL.so installed and available to the app? see if there's anything missing in ldd /opt/resolve/bin/resolve | grep OpenCL
  • If it is not installed, you might want to try installing ocl-icd-opencl-dev, as described here: How to install libOpenCL.so on ubuntu, since this package is also listed as a prerequisite for installing davinci resolve in this article: https://www.fosslinux.com/24381/how-to-install-davinci-resolve-on-ubuntu.htm
  • Make sure libOpenCL.so is in your ldconfig cache: ldconfig -p | grep OpenCL, if not, update it with ldconfig, then run sudo dpkg-reconfigure davinci-resolve

If that doesn't help, this article (where I also found most of the other information) lists some more things you can try: https://bashbaug.github.io/opencl/2019/07/06/OpenCL-On-Linux.html (see section "Troubleshooting OpenCL on Linux")

  • Both the first and third command output something. I tried the install from the second point but all it did was uninstall nvidia-opencl-dev and install ocl-icd-opencl-dev which didn't make DaVinci work
