[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 http://download.blender.org/release/Ble ... 86.tar.bz2
64 bit http://download.blender.org/release/Ble ... 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)
