All right! Progress…
Otto and Yorik; “find / | grep blender” gave me a huge list of files, cool but useless to me at this moment.
However, “blender -w” opened the window with Blender in it. (I always seam to expect things to be really complicated when they’re not. *Lol a little at self), this is what came out of that when I pressed “p” in my .blend project;
Using Python version 2.4
Unable to load: libtiff.
Try setting the BF_TIFF_LIB environment variable if you want this support.
Example: setenv BF_TIFF_LIB /usr/lib/libtiff.so
/usr/bin/blender: line 46: 14514 Segmentation fault blender-bin [email protected]
Do I just need to install “libtiff” or is there something else that this is saying to me? (I have no idea how to set “…the BF_TIFF_LIB environment variable” either).
Fireside; I found the “libsdl1.2-dev” thing just as you said and am about to install it. (I wanted to see the error messages and post them first). I’ll let you all know if that makes a difference in a moment…
doing that now on a different desktop (I love this Ubuntu!)
… It Worked! I have the game playing umm… “P” function, Thanks!
(Ubuntu should realy put that library in the Blender package automaticly).
Now, did this include “libtiff” or do I still need that?
Thanks for your patience with this, all of you.
