Hello my friends. I’m entusiastic about linux and blender. I finally arrived installing debian and everething is up and running concerning hardware. But the most important program for me as a design isn’t running and I don’t know why. Blender, after install with apt-get, or dowloading from blender.org, don’t starts. When clicked the icon it seems to run something but nothing shows on the screen.
I installed testing and unstable for deb packages to try. No results.
Please, your help is really usefull. Hope I could help others on the future.
Thanks a lot,
it’s better to start Blender from the console or a X-term
type “blender” (or maybe “blender -w” to get a windowed screen) on a
console window and you’ll get some useful messages.
you can only type “blender” if the blender executable is on “your
path”, usually /usr/bin/XXXX (blender here).
Probably don’t, so search it and make a simbolic link, ex:
/“something”/something"/blender-glibc…/blender —> /usr/bin/blender
Another usual problem is the missing libstdc++ library
Just install it ( from internet or debian CD’s)
It’s all this clear to you.
Thanks OTO, great your advices. Ok, I reinstalled Blender from .deb, the 2.35. Before I installed the library you told. When I launch it from the terminal the output messages are:
Xlib: extension “GLX” missing on display “:0.0”.
ERROR: Unable to open Blender window
I searched trough Xlib and GLX on debian package but don’t know exactally what install. Please help me with it too my fellow, I don’t know how to proceed.
Thanks very mutch for your help OTO.
Hello, I searched over the net and find out that GLX is a module that wasn’t loaded when X started. I uncomented the line on /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to make it load correctly. And now I can launch Blender, Great!!!
Thanks to OTO, and you from the forum for your presence and help.
And thank you for your words, very kind!
Bye and keep blending
