    Thanks – I had a problem in version 2.62 (the compositing node image + object did not work as expected in Ubuntu/Blender 2.62 while working fine in Windows). I couldn’t find anything about the error (other than unresolved dump from render farms).
    In sum, your step by step outline worked. The repository I had was stuck on 2.62 and frankly, I was afraid that the manual install would be less than perfect. In any case, I ran your every step and I thank you. I found that ppa:cheleb/blender-svn (which I tried last night) was not working as of 08/27/2013 at least. ANd your suggestion to add ppa:irie/blender instead was a success. Thanks a bunch.

    I installed Ubuntu 13.10 yesterday – did what you stated and added blender 2.89. Went to start Blender and … nothing.

    Are you supposed to be connected to the web for Ubuntu to do something for installed apps to work? Is that what every single site that tells how to install Blender might be leaving out?

    I know nothing about Linux or Ubuntu – but I would think if that is the case – that is a pretty important factor for installing apps that shouldn’t be left out.
