So I have the linux version of cycles and I can’t get light into the scene. It’s in the render setting and I set a square to emission, I can’t tell If I am just missing something or if it’s a bigger bug than I think it is.
Make sure you have the following libraries installed:
From Graphicall: “you need to install
libboost-filesystem1.42.0 libboost-regex1.42.0 libboost-system1.42.0 libboost-serialization1.42.0 libboost-thread1.42.0
either via synaptic or a terminal”
Your scene may not be exporting at all, but I’m not sure since you description is pretty short. When you start a render with f12 or whatever, there should be a message about building BVHs or something to that fact. If you don’t, it isn’t even starting. Make sure you have the above libraries installed and try again.
