Blender - need to activate?

Post by new guy » Sun Oct 07, 2012 1:37 pm

Morning, today's my first day with Blender and my first post here.

I have 2 problems in getting Blender working.

1. I can't select an object with right or left mouse-click... I've tried changing the settings in "user preferences" and it still doesn't work. I'm using a Logitech Trackman Marble with Ubuntu 11.04 desktop if that helps any?

2. I can't import .py scripts so that Blender can see them. I've tried placing both the folder "addons-extern" and "addons-contrib" in blender2.64/2.64/scripts and then restarting Blender; and I've tried using the user preferences>add ons>install add ons. Neither work.

Do I need to register or somehow activate Blender for it to work?

Many thanks for your patience

.py scripts will only show as addons, if they got the required structures, like bl_info, register and unregister functions

make sure you enable "Testing" category in user prefs > addons to see contrib addons.
I'm sitting, waiting, wishing, building Blender in superstition...
