In need of a little help to install python script


(Peter) #1

Hi guy’s,

This one is trivial but i would really like to be able to get rid of round corners in the UI and i found a patch a guy made to source code to disable it but i am having difficulty getting it to work.

I did my share of Googling on how to do this but it seriously lead to even more confusion.

Here the link : https://developer.blender.org/D2178

What i did was hitting the Download raw Diff button and copy paste the code then i open notepad++ and save it as .py then i went in addons and use install addons from file and nothing show up in the addons menu so maybe it is simply because i am missing something or the script is not compatible with 2.79?

Sorry i just realize that there was a python support section so if a mod can be cool enough to move it over there it would be great!

Thank in advance

this is source code. so unless you want learn compiling, then leave well enough alone. if you use windows, then seriously, get out while youre still sane… :scream:

OK i see but i thought there was a way to use the various .py in the page as addons.

there is some .py ui scripts that dont need compiling. the top file is one of those. the code change adds a button, but unless you recompile with the other changes, the button wont work.

OK at least now i know a little more about the developer Blender file structure so thank for the information.

The guy also mention it was a patch and i found a few treads and a video about patching Blender so i am not sure if they were referring to the same procedure.
