This question already has an answer here:
my version of blender is 2.69, Ubuntu is 13.10, Processor i7 with Nvidia 640 Graphic card. i was running Windows,but changed my mind and want to use Linux, i just installed Ubuntu first time today morning, and whole day i had been searching net to install blender, i really don't know any thing about Linux , but i did install and followed as bellow found in the forum.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/blender sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install blender
second command gives some error, as you can see i pasted here, but third one went ok and run well, after getting DONE message, i try to go to Dash Home and run from there, but as soon as i click on blender icon, just dash Home disappears and nothing happens, same as before Please help.
