I recently switched to ubuntu (mmh dual boot in fact) and wanted to share some info with this tutorial, essentially since I spent some hours to figure out how to install 2.49b next to 2.60a.
this is about installing blender 2.49b and 2.60 or graphicalls built, about python versions and about desktop integration
almost no console used during the setup, almost all made in a mouse-clic-clic way. you’ll have time to discover console, bash and apt great benefits later and softly.
also I hope to convince poor windows users we are to switch to this marvellous and predictible os.
thanks for c&c
