Can't get it working... I followed all of the instructions.

For now I'll use Windows, but I would like to do it on Linux. For some reason, Blender doesn't recgonize the script.

There are some linking errors even when I launch Indigo out of the console.

I think that's it.
Thanks,

Maybe a small screenshot or pasted text of what errors you get? So I can understand what the problem is.....
Thanks

I tried switching to ubuntu and it's still not working.

I copied the conf and py files into the appropiate directories, and it's just not showing up. That's all I can say.

py = .blender/plugins/
conf = .blender/plugins/bpydata/

That's the problem, read the tut again

py = .blender/plugins/ is not the path
py= .blender/scripts would be the right one

:wink:

I'm sorry, that was a typo. It is in scripts.

ok, just for kicks, make sure:

1) you did install blender by downloading it from the website and not the ubuntu repos

2) If you did as citated before could you please check if you have a .blende folder (hidden folder) besides the blender folder in your home. If you do can you delete it or raname it if you wish, and then rename your blender folder in your home to .blender so it becomes hidden and then test again?

This will help me confirm something that I will have to update in the tutorial.

Thanks

I've already installed blender from the website, but I don't understand the second instruction. Can you please repeat that?

Ok, in your home dir, look for hidden folders and files, you have to enable ubuntu to show you hidden folders and files. To do it, go to View and activate Show hidden files and folders.

When you do that, check if there's a folder already named .blender (dot files are hidden files)

If there is, rename it temporarily to something else, then the zipped file you downloaded from blender website, unpack it to your home directory and name it .blender (with the dot to make it hidden), copy the blendigo files into that new folder and test it please. This is the way I have it running in my account, and I need to check if maybe it should be done somehow like this or not.

Keep me posted, Thanks!

I'll need to do this tomorrow, it's almost midnight in my time zone and I have things to do early in the morning. Thanks for your help.

I just found that none of the scripts in blender will work on my system. Nothing happens. I'll try to find a solution.

EDIT: Whoops, sorry for double-posting.

Yes, I have fixed the problem. It was a problem in how I installed Blender.

Thank you for helping a complete Linux Newbie.

The tutorial just didn't state how to install Blender into the home directory, I've got it. Being a Linux newbie and all that, I really am having fun switching from Windows and getting all of the complications on the way. Thanks.
