I can't start this build. It report me that it can't find libgettext library but it is installed on my ubuntu linux. Any solutions?

you probably have a different (newer) version of that library

In my case (ubuntu breezy) creating a symbolic link did help:
(please note that I'm not really certain if this is a 'safe' solution - it's just a way of working around libary dependency issues)

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
If you don't want to mess with your setup you'll probably have to compile blender yourself.
