Easy installation of the latest Blender 2.43 in Linux

Filed under: linux — tuxicity @ 11:43 am

“Blender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.”

*Blender Requires glibc 2.3.2, includes FFMPG, Suits most recent Linux distributions.*

First download Blender 2.43, in my case the Linux1386 Package.

In Terminal :

wget http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.43/blender-2.43-linux-glibc232-py24-i386.tar.bz2

tar -jxvf blender-2.43-linux-glibc232-py24-i386.tar.bz2

now continue as root (sudo)

mv blender-2.43-linux-glibc232-py24-i386 /usr/local/

ln -s /usr/local/blender-2.43-linux-glibc232-py24-i386/blender /usr/local/bin/blender

Now blender can be run with the command “blender”

Blender can be added to your menu with “alacarte” (rightclick menubar > edit menus) in Gnome. and I’m sure there is a similar tool in KDE too 🙂

Name = Blender
Command = blender
Icon = Unknown
