» Blender 2.60.3 + Cycles(cuda) + maya color theme + rounded buttons

Cycles now has shader support in opencl (cuda is still faster though if it works on your card)!


Interface with rounded (shake like) buttons

blender screenshot

This build was compiled on kubuntu 11.04 64bit with cmake and includes my dark theme, renderman addons (http://www.blendertorenderman.org/p/blender-25x-development.html) and stereoscopic tools (http://www.noeol.de/s3d/). I hope you enjoy!

I finally got everything that was giving me a headache before to compile.  So, this build now includes cycles (with cuda and cpu), ffmpeg and opencollada!  If anyone else is having trouble getting these to compile, let me know.  I did a ton of looking around and found some good information and a bunch of bad information.  Here are some useful links:





I made some very minor modifications to the ui code to round the buttons more. I hope you like it!

Happy Holiday - Merry Christmas!

I love your interface and I want to keep it as a defaut on new versions. I have one computer that it is already default no matter what I do, but I didn't know how I did it. How to make it default for all computers I have? Any idea?

This interface is really beautiful and more sofistcated than the original one. If you have any suggestion I'll appreciate.
Thank You!

i get this error: "CUDA binary kernel for this graphics card not found." i am using linux mint debian testing version, have 280.13-1 nvidia and cuda drivers. cuda toolkit 3.2.16-2. the video card is 9600m gt. also, i could run cuda mode cycles in older builds from graphicall. any ideas?

That's me again, it seems that I could have wrong drivers from NVIDIA, however, they are at the latest possible version. I found this in dmesg:

Libcuda is the library installed by NVIDIA driver and with xorg in the latest version there can be some incompatibility. Maybe I'll try the 275 or even 270 version line of the drivers... we'll see.

@arenyart : thanks for the link, I was indeed following these instructions, everything seems to work until the very end of the compilation -> some error related to OpenImageIO and jpeg2000. By the way, I saw today that the Boost and OpenImageIO libs where commited for linux. Do you know if we still need to compile them prior to blender ? Well, I don't want to flood your thread, I guess I'll ask some support in blenderartists.

This page resolved it for me: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:2.6/Source/Render/Cycles/Building

The installer asks for default path, accept with an Enter

Depending on your GCC version you might get into an error compiling Blender (unsupported GNU version! gcc 4.5 and up are not supported!)

if so delete or comment the following lines in /usr/local/cuda/include/host_config.h

#if __GNUC__ > 4 || (__GNUC__ == 4 && __GNUC_MINOR__ > 4)
#error -- unsupported GNU version! gcc 4.5 and up are not supported!
#endif /* __GNUC__> 4 || (__GNUC__ == 4 && __GNUC_MINOR__ > 4) */"

Ooops, I was a bit short with the error description : the message appears with cycles + GPU + CUDA rendering.
Everything else is fine.

Tried your build on ubuntu 11.10, unfortunately it doesn't work : unsupported GNU version! gcc 4.5 and up are not supported!
By the way, now that cycles is merged I fail to compile blender after hours trying. I've read the wiki up and down, searched blenderartists with no luck. It would be very nice if you could provide a quick guide on how you managed to compile.

Unfortunately, Linux Mint 11 is TOO OLD for this build. I has libraries in version 52 (53 required, I've tested libavformat, libavcodec, libavutil, libavdevice) and some another are too a bit older , (libswscale was v0 instead of v2) than required. Symbolic linking trick with ln -s is no longer working because of internal versioning. So, this is TESTING Linux Mint, and it is too old. I rather would not risk to switch the whole fresh installed machine into unstable, however, maybe is there some other way to run this blender? Please advice, your help is much appreciated.

On fresh Linux Mint 11 install (x64) there is an error: ./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.2mu.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I have to figure out what to install (there's a list of libs needed somewhere) and we'll see.

Thank you man for this great build. I'm downloading and will give a feedback how this is working on Linux Mint x64 with both Tesla2070 and Tesla1060.
Feeling talkative?
