Script Installation 2.57b

Hi,

I have downloaded the following script:

https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-extensions/contrib/py/scripts/addons/io_import_LRO_Lola_MGS_Mola_img.py

I have read the following pages:

http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:Manual/Extensions/Python/Scripts_guidelines
http://sites.google.com/site/bartiuscrouch02/install

I cannot find instructions that enumerate the actual steps to installing and running a Python script for Blender 2.57b on Linux.

Where can I find documentation that indicates where to install and load the given Python source?

http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.5/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/NASA_IMG_Importer

I have installed Blender into:

/opt/blender-2.57b-linux-glibc27-x86_64/

The following directories exist:

/home/username/.blender/
/home/username/.blender/2.57/

Thank you!

For blender 2.57 http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.5/Manual/Extensions/Python/Add-Ons

Much appreciated.

In a Blender Python console you could use:


bpy.utils.script_paths()

or do it as a script in a Blender text editor:


import bpy
bpy.utils.script_paths()

and press ‘Alt+P’ to run the script.

I don’t use an installed version, I just download the latest build from Blender.org, so addons go in ‘2.57b/scripts/addons/’ relative to the executable.

You can also point to any folder where you want to keep your external scripts from the User Preferences / Files panel.
See herefor an example. You can then have multiple versions of blender that can all see your addon scripts.
