I am attempting to install the video editor Lightworks using dpkg. When I try, it says Errors occured when installing. I used the graphical package installer instead, and it said that the dependency libc6 (>= 2.17) could not be resolved. I am using ubuntu 12.04.

Is there any way to get this package in 12.04, or am I stuck?

as you can see libc6 2.15 is used in ubuntu 12.04, so you have to find and add a external repository, "sideload"/install it manually or compile it yourself if you need a newer version...

as ubuntu 12.04 is supported for just another year, i would suggest you to upgrade anyway to a newer (lts-)release! - if it is possible wait 2 months and get 16.04 lts (supported until 2021).
