I'm trying to install Blender 2.48a. It's not available from synaptics or add/remove(only 2.46 is). So I downloaded the tar.bz2 from Blender.org and extracted the file.
I then double click the Blender executable file and nothing happens. No error no attempt by Ubuntu to do anything??? I've read somewhere that Ubuntu does not have the dependencies for Blender installed???
What does that mean?? How do I install it?
Keep in mind I am an Uber Noob, this is my first day on Ubuntu. Looking forward to blending!
