I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 (Kubuntu, actually) on a Lenovo ThinkPad L540.
I installed the latest Blender from the PPA repository like so:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender sudo apt install blender
(The version string is
94552-4c0cca78eb4-0thomas~bionic0 and the description includes
This is version 2.8 obtained by pulling the last version in the master branch of the blender git repository. According to the Blender website, that should be 2.82a.)
Attempting to run this new blender gives the error:
/usr/lib/blender/blender: error while loading shared libraries: libLLVM-6.0.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I then discovered that my scrollback history wasn't set up right, so I don't have the list of packages installed when I ran the earlier commands.
I'd earlier (a year ago) installed Blender 2.80 manually (not from a
.deb but from a tarball); that installation still opens without complaining about libraries.
I've searched the error and
libLLVM online and found a suggestion to use
sudo /sbin/ldconfig -v, which (after checking the man page) I tried, but it had no effect; the error on trying to run the new blender is exactly the same, including in a new Konsole window.
- How can I get the dependencies installed correctly so the program will open, and
- Is there somewhere I should report this as a bug?
