Getting output, command prompt on linux when running script

Is there some way to get a command prompt, or feedback from a script in Linux.

The only way I can do it, is to type the ‘blender’ command at a prompt but that gives me an older version of blender. Can I enable this for any current build, I’m on 2.78 now.

How did you install 2.78. I assume you simply downloaded and extracted to it’s own directory, whilst the older version was installed by your package manager.

If so, in the terminal, simply navigate to the 2.78 directory and type ./blender

This will launch 2.78, and give you the output you seek.

Thanks, that worked, I can’t believe I didn’t try that.

Sometimes, the obvious answer is the most elusive. Glad to be of service :slight_smile:
