Thread: cannot start blender 3.3 Linux

    There is not even the need to compile it from source as blender provides a downloadable archive (prominently on the download page) which you only have to unpack and run. And no, you didn't provide the link to source code. The source code is on git as described in your last link. You pointed to the archive that you only have to unpack and run (unfortunately you pointed to a unknown mirror without checksums as they are provided at the real blender site).

    That is true, but not everyone does that or follows directions.

    Don't ask "if" something can be done, for it can always be done. Rather instead ask "How" can it be done.

    Just wondering why sudo or su is needed really.
    I am using the tar.xz file from blender site and just untar it in one of my drive accessible to the user with no problem for a long time.
    If want to be run directly, be sure it is in the path.
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    It seems to do with the directories in which it's installed. On one hand you can install it to the home directory or to the /usr directory. It's when it's installed to the /usr directory that you would need sudo or su.

    I could be wrong but depends on where in usr you install it then you don't need the root permission to run it just like any other application we install using zypper or yast.
    Nice to see you around, been a while I haven't seen that gentoo avatar.

    "Installing on Linux
    Check the Downloading Blender page to find the minimum requirements and where to get Blender (if you have not done so yet).
    Install from blender.org

    Download the Linux version for your architecture and uncompress the file to the desired location (e.g. ~/software or /usr/local)."

    Thank you. It has been a while. I've been thinking that a security overview should be updated. Especially with the coming of Web 3.0, where Web 3.0 is the newest version and based on blockchain and a decentralized web. But that's another subject. It's good to see my old friends again. I do think the best way to install blender is via Steam or Zypper and YaST.

    I hope you stay around

    Back to the subject, I extracted the tar.xz blender 3.3 file in /usr/local and I can run it by my user without needing the root permission.
    Edit:
    And it found & uses my blender config in /home/conram/.config/blender

    So what would happen if you delete your blender config, or at least make a backup of it?
