Trunk Build of Blender 2.57a r36592 OpenMP for Linux 32bit. Built using Scons on and for Ubuntu 10.10

If you are interested in seeing the changes to the Trunk release, have a look at the commit log here

                                                                        MAKE SURE YOUR UBUNTU IS UP TO DATE


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

To make this version work, you'll need to install/replace a couple of libs. These come from Ubuntu 10.10. Have tested this end of 10.04 and all worked perfectly, but do this at your own risk!


right click and 'saves link as' for each link






Install them in the order above.. if you have ncurses dev installed remove before using Gdebi via synaptic.


Now includes Oscuart Tools, Import Sound to anim(allows u to drive scale of an object and bone rotaion et by sound.. wav), and various other Addons

New Contributed Addons 8th May.
Patches include::

Skin (Zspheres)                                        Multi Axis Grid
Dual Contour Remesh                             Straight
Dynamic Paint                                          Color Wireframe
Relaxation                                                Spring modifier
Snap to Curve                                          

Double Edge Matte compositor node

                                                                   YAFARAY 0.1.2 Alpha included.. Hope it works for all.. fingers crossed Wink


All Boost 1.43 libs, from my own build, are included with this for you to copy to your /usr/libs folder so SLG will run. Copy only the libs in the folder and not the folder itself. Have also included my pylux.so in the Luxrender Addons folder.. Do hope it works for all Nvidia GPU's.


Make sure you have the most current Nvidia drivers installed on your distro. If you are using Mint you may find you'll need to install Cuda toolkit and libfreeimage3 to make SLG and pylux.so work. I'd suggest installing these anway, even for Ubuntu.

 Cuda Toolkit Link ::


To install, open terminal and execute file as root user..

sudo sh ./cudatoolkit_3.2.16_linux_*.run

it will ask where to install the toolkit, just hit return and all should install without an issue

To install libfreeimage3 head to Synatic or what ever Package Manager your distro uses. Search and install.

Luxrender Engine Presets are also included



Big thanks should go out to all the harding working contributors.Without the likes of Bartek Skorupa, Bartius Crouch, chromoly, Dany Lebel, etoven, EOF-sensei, Fabio Russo, Filiciss, Fish, Jeroen Bakker, Keith Boshoff, khuuyj, LetterRip, Luca Bonavita, mato, Matt Ebb, Matthias Fauconneau, Miika Hämäläinen, Mike Pan, Nico, ousttrue, Raul Fernandez Hernandez, Seminumerical, stiv, Tobias Oelgarte, and Ze10, Blender would be just another opensource 3D program. Cheers guys


Just one lonely comment. Leave yours.

I'm looking for Blender 2.5 + Yafaray for Ubuntu 10. This is what I'm looking for, unfortunately the Yafaray can't run. On the UserPreferences > AddOns, I can see the Yafaray Exporter, but it can't be clicked. I also tried other builds even tried the instruction to create my own build, the results are same, the Yafaray Exporter appeared on Blender UserPreferences but can't be enabled. Can't you please check what go wrong?

I have followed your intruction to install libavutil50, libncurses5_5.7+20100626, gettext_0.18.1.1-1. Because I don't need SLG so I skipped the next procedure (Boost 1.43 libs and Cuda Toolkit). Here is my computer's specification:
- Intel QuadCore
- Ubuntu 10.10 32-Bit (recently upgraded from 10.04)
- NVidia GeForce 9500 GT with Driver 260.19.06 installed
- Python v2.6 and v3.1 installed
Feeling talkative?
