Blender SFS fixed for usr-merge

November 15, 2023 — BarryK

SFSget, via the the "pkg" desktop icon, was able to download and install Blender. However, awhile back I removed it, as it was incompatible with the usr-merge folder hierarchy. That is now fixed and the Blender SFS is again available.

Bender is a very powerful 3D design tool. See the homepage:

I have only tested it installed to the main desktop, not in a container. On the main desktop, it runs as user "blender", with home folder /home/blender and of course write access into /files.

There was one thing that didn't work; when I clicked on the menu entry to open the online User Manual in the default web browser, nothing happened. Investigated why, and fixed it. That will be the next blog post.
