Hi. i have installed Blender numerous times. I love how easy it works. Today i got my first 64bit ubuntu Pc up and running. SO naturaly I want to install Blender. I downloaded 64 bit version…extraction was a hassel. The new ubuntu is different to say the least. I can’t find a solution to the simplest install issue I have. Please let me ask here and make sure it is explained to everyone by the time its solved. I found many other similar linux install threads but not one had my answer.
I am at the download folder. tar.bz2 file is extracted there for convenience. I tried permissions change through file man. No go.
How do I get the tar.bz2 file extracted to the place that will allow the executable to run as I intended? It just won’t install as it used to for my new 12.10 64bit setup.
