weird python thing


(woiak) #1

about three months ago I Installed linux on my computer (its great)
however i just got around to installing blender the other day. I’ve been playing with python in linux, and thats when i remembered it was suported in blender.so i got the blender2.0 manual off the shelf and started reading the python section.

to make a long story short I couldn’t get the example code to work:

import Blender

if(Blender.bylink):
obj=Blender.link
if(obj.LocZ <0.0): obj.LocZ = 0.0

I followed the other directions step by step to link the script to my object. however it didn’t work. I checked the capitalization etc. I thought maybe there was a problem with python however i tride several scripts that i downloaded (head creater, torus suit) and the both worked perfictly.

I’m currently using blender2.23 and python2.21

What do you mean by it didn’t work? Do you get any errors? You have changed the scriptlink to ‘Redraw’ for that object?

no there were no errors returned and yes i set it to redraw

simply nothing happened

although i did notice an error on launching of blender it tells me
no such derectory: /dev/

however blender runs fine

ps
thanks for the quik response
