Blender will not open when clicked

Postby matthewc954 on Sat Apr 14, 2012 7:14 pm

I am new to linux and love it so far. I appreciate the community and the support it seems to get and it makes microsoft seem so dull. Anyway, I have a problem that I need answered.

I have just recently installed Linux Mint LXDE on an older computer (32 bit) with an ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card and ran into a problem. When I click on Blender nothing happens. I talked to a friend who told me to pull up lspci and this is what I have. Can anybody tell me what is wrong?

If I missed something I will gladly post what info is needed. Just tell me how to get it and I will post it as I am very inexperienced with this operating system and have much to learn. Thank you for the support!

Check your video driver with ( copy and paste command in terminal ) :

Code: Select all
inxi -Gx


try reinstall blender:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall blender
sudo apt-get install -f


If not work, try install the latest blender, tutorial is in : http://www.unixmen.com/201202-blender-2 ... linuxmint/

I have tried everything that you suggested and when I click on blender it still doesn't open. It just doesn't respond at all.

Here is the info for the video driver

matt@linux ~ $ inxi -Gx

X.Org 1.10.4 drivers ati,radeon unloaded: fbdev,vesa Resolution 1440x900@59.9hz
GLX Renderer Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV350 GLX Version 2.1 Mesa 7.11 Direct Rendering Yes



This is what it says in Terminal when i type
Code: Select all
blender


matt@linux ~ $ blender
ndof: unknown Logitech product c51b
Illegal instruction

I read from this site , you need to install :
ibavformat53; libavdevice53; libswscale2
maybe you can check in synaptic package manager if the packages installed

I did have to install libavformat53 but unfortunately it still does not turn on. I read the webpage that you attached and got the same error that the other person got telling me that libavformat52, libavdevice52, and libswscale0 were not found. I even looked for those just to try it but they were not there.
