I know that people say that you just have to extract the archive and you can execute blender, however, when I try to start it, two different things happen, depending on the situation:
If I try to execute it from my GUI (which is KDE), the screen flickers for a second but nothing happens.
If I try to ececute it from the command line, i get this error message:
X error of failed request: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 55 (X_CreateGC)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 68
current serial number in output stream: 76
And then it sends me back to the shell.
I am new to linux, so perhaps this is just a naive error, but if anyone knows linux at all, could you help me out?
BTW, I am running Red Hat 7.2 with kernel 2.4.7, I think. Thanks in advance.
P.S. If any of you know any other place which might have ltutorials on the subject, you can’t go wrong in sending them my way
