I installed Blender through the Software Center a while ago. Version 2.69 was installed and I want to upgrade to the newer v 2.76. I downloaded the program from blender.org, but now I'm stuck. I am fairly new to linux and Ubuntu and I don't know where to go from here.
I tried to find where the copy of Blender I already have installed is located but couldn't find it. I think I just need to copy the contexts of the new tar file to the old location, but can't find the old location.
Switching from windows to linux has been the most fun/frustration adventure I've had on the computer in 30 year.
