Blender 2.64a x86_64 not start in ubuntu 12.10 AMD64 Linux.

If run Blender in terminal, can got the following error :
error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All is ok in ubuntu 12.04. Why error in 12.10 ?
Someone meet this problem too:

You need to install the dev package for libSDL-1.2. That message means Blender could not find the shared library.

Thanks! It works!

(1) download SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz here: (3.7M)
http://www.libsdl.org/release/

(2) Run command in terminal:
tar -xzvf SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz
cd SDL-1.2.15
./configure
make
sudo make install

(3) So you can find libSDL-1.2.so.0 at /usr/lib/
And then Blender 2.64a can start in Ubuntu 12.10 now!

errr..... can I have a dumbed-down version of that for less techie people?

This is what I tried:

Code: Select all

yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$ tar -xzvf SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz
tar (child): SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$ tar -xzvf yogyog/Home/Downloads/SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz
tar (child): yogyog/Home/Downloads/SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now

yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$ cd SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz

yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$ cd yogyog/Home/Downloads/SDL-1.2.15.tar.gzbash: cd: yogyog/Home/Downloads/SDL-1.2.15.tar.gz: No such file or directory
yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$ ^C
yogyog@yogyog-305V4A-305V5A:~$

Did you forget the "download the file" step?

Yes... I did.

I was pointing the terminal at the wrong folder.

I sorted that - but to no avail - getting help from someone who knows far more about this sort of thing.

And it still didn't work!

I'm thinking of going back to the penultimate Ubuntu, or waiting and seeing if somebody solves this problem for me, meanwhile using Blender on the Windows half of my machine.

OK - I've just discovered a whole new level of weirdness... good weirdness! :D

If I click Blender in the dock, or type blender in the terminal, nothing happens*.... but if I click a .blend file it works fine!

well - I'm happy now anyway.

*the error message I get is

Code: Select all

connect failed: No such file or directory
FRS_set_context: context 0x0x4f940d8 scene 0x0x5566e08
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The connect failed: No such file or directory message is just a warning that no Space Navigator was found. Not to worry!

This is more serious:

FRS_set_context: context 0x0x4f940d8 scene 0x0x5566e08
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


The fact you can click on .blend and it loads fine suggests your default .blend is trashed somehow. After starting Blender, you might try resetting the defaults:

File->Load Factory Settings
File->Save User Defaults

Must confess when I was creating headless 12.04 vmimage I only had to just run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libXi6


to clear up any weird not wanting to play when rendering cmdline renders.
