LuxRender with blender

I am trying to get LuxRender running with blender. I have downloaded it. What next?

Enable it in the addons menu (under the “render” section), select it from the render engine dropdown, and get cracking. Here’s some documentation to get you started:

Jonathan Williamson from Blender Cookie has great tutorials. I think you should check them out:

Thanks! I will see what I can do.

Of course it didn’t work. It is not showing up in the addon’s menu. Where do I find the render engine dropdown?

Okay, so apparently the script for blender was messed up, and I got it working with 2.49. I was trying it with 2.56, but I’ll try again with a newer version.
