I recently changed from openSUSE 11.0 to Ubunto 8.04 Hardy Heron as the xgl used by compiz was crashing the rendering.
Everything’s now cool, with my installation but since i changed and started using the same version of the program, v2.45, i have not been able to render any faces that have got images on them.
I have followed the procedure for creating UV images on faces. I create an object, switch to UV Face Select Mode, select a face i want to change, open the UV Editor, do ALT-O to open an image on my hard-disk, open the image, confirm it appears on the UV Editor, go back to the 3d view and change to Object Mode, go to the Materials and Links, hit NEW MATERIAL, then change to the Shading sub-button and select and the Materials tab hit the TexFace button, and it starts showing on the 3d view when i go into Textured display mode, but when press F12 to render i get a blank face on that side.
On another file i get a black face on that face.
I thought it might be something to do with files, i changed the permissions just in case but that made no difference. I just can’t get images to shows on by Ubuntu 8.04 using Blender 2.45 software.
The only thing i haven’t tried but seems a bit silly is to try changing the Blender default renderer.
Help me, i’m really screwed, i really don’t want to go back to openSUSE 11.0 with plain no-frills KDE interface which is the only option at the monent.
