I slightly modified an ebuild from this Git:

updated lwks-12.0 ebuild

+1 ... I've been using this for over a year from non-official ebuilds.

This updated 12.0 ebuild is modified from the layman r3pek media-gfx/lwks-11.1f ebuild. Added some deps. Verified working with a freshly downloaded .deb from
Comment 6 Martin Samek 2014-10-18 20:35:19 UTC
ebuild 12.0 fails for me, there is a block:

[blocks B      ] media-libs/libjpeg-turbo:0 ("media-libs/libjpeg-turbo:0" is blocking media-libs/jpeg-8d-r1)
[blocks B      ] media-libs/jpeg:0 ("media-libs/jpeg:0" is blocking media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.3.1)
Comment 7 Walter 2014-11-27 23:42:19 UTC
OK, so the 12.0 ebuild didn't work entirely.

Martin, your issue is the same I had .. to fix it, upgrade to media-libs/libjpeg-turbo. The old ebuilds had another jpeg RDEP in them which is no longer current.

I am uploading a new lwks-12.0.1 ebuild now which I would appreciate anyone who can testing out.

Comment 9 Ron 2015-02-19 10:00:22 UTC
Is it just me or does someone else still getting this:

lightworks: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Comment 10 Walter 2015-02-19 18:42:15 UTC
The error you are experiencing is, in my experience, if I remember correctly, caused by not upgrading to libjpeg-turbo from older libjpeg.

Now, I am no ebuild expert, and probably someone else needs to look at this and give it the once over, but I would have thought the dependency 'media-libs/libjpeg-turbo' should have solved the issue for you if you are using the latest version of the ebuild file?

If that does not work then all I can suggest is, for the moment, to try the non ebuild based install process detailed at which seems to work for myself and others.
