blender on Linux (xubuntu)

Post by xsinick »

how to properly install blender on linux (or any other application) is that i can click an icon to get it to run?


I unzipped the linux version of blender(mined you it has link 5-6 versions)
and send it to my desktop becuase it would give me permission to install elsewhere. I click the gear like blender icon and nothing ( the icon should be the blender icon). HELP!


I use Ubuntu's Xubuntu linux.

Hello
as franzrogar pointed above, the "correct" way to install is with Apt-get ( or synaptic)
But to install fresh versions, uncompress them
Enter the new Blender directory and open a xterm or terminal in there
Now type ./blender -w
Blender opens? good
If not check the messages in the console
Some missing libs probably
Bye

Well, Debian it's always a great classic choice, rock solid

Just choose a light weight desktop like ICE WM or FVWM

Or maybe this one:
