[TUTORIAL] installing blender 2.49b on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
« on: June 14, 2012, 12:04:48 am »
new Ubuntu 12.04 supports only python 2.7 or newer and from repositories you can install only blender 2.62, but this version doersn't work with m2mod and m2i import/export plugin

to use old 2.49b blender we need to install old python2.5
we will use an external repo
open a terminal and type this line to add this new repo:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fkrull/deadsnakes

now we need to update apt list, type:

$ sudo apt-get update

now we can install old python

$ sudo apt-get install python2.5 python2.5-dev

now python2.5 is installed
download blender2.49b and extract it in a folder
32 bit ... 86.tar.bz2
64 bit ... 64.tar.bz2

run blender from extracted folder (double click on "blender" in the folder)

now you can add python scripts in .blender folder (dot folders are hidden, type Ctrl+h to show it)
