Blender console in mac OS?

Post by aws357 » Mon Feb 27, 2006 8:26 pm

Usually, when launching blender, there should be a console window appearing underneath.

Strangely, when I launch blender 2.40 in MacOSX(10.4.5) I don't have any console.

:D How can I have it? Do I have to download blender 2.41?

Run the "Console" application in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.

if you want to run blender in the background, navigate to your blender folder, say in Applications, and then:

Code: Select all

iMac:~ antimatter$ /Applications/blender/ <switches if desired>

i'm on a Powerbook G4 / System Mac osx 10.4.5 and work with blender 2.41

I'm having trouble importing 3ds files found on the internet / each time i get the same error message :
- Python Script Error : check console

i don't know what console and how to find the answer / i'm not comfortable with the mac console and would appreciate some help if somebody on a Mac got the same problem. Thank you in advance.
