Your browser (Firefox is the default in Pop!_OS) will ask whether you want to open or save the file.

Install the DEB file

In Pop!_OS, the default application for opening .deb files is Eddy. Choose the "Open" option, and Eddy will launch automatically when the download is complete. (If you are using a different web browser and you saved the .deb file, locate the .deb file in the Files app and open it.)

Click the green "Install" button in the top-right corner of Eddy to install the package. When the process is finished, a red "Uninstall" button will appear in its place.

Now, the Lightworks launcher will appear in the Application menu or the Launcher when you search for it.
