On my pc I have 2 versions of the same software (Blender 2.79 and 2.80) installed, and I need both of them. For debugging purposed I need to launch Blender 2.80 from terminal, so that I can see all the executed functions and the print() outputs, but when I type "blender" it opens the 2.79 version.
I probably need to add that I downloaded Blender 2.80 as a portable package (.zip file), because I didn't want to overwrite the 2.79 install.
How can I open Blender 2.80 from terminal?
As explained in the comments, it's possible to to run the 2.8 version by running the executable, but that would require typing the path every time, which is kind of a bummer.
A possible solution is a script, I guess, but is there a way to create a custom command in the terminal (like
blender2.80), or any other way to open it with a short line?
