# Blender 2.79, how to install Khronos Group gltf exporter?

2. I read install instructions, but those were for Windows.
3. I tried copying the addon under ~/.blender/2.79/scripts/addons/io_scene_gltf2 but Blender shows nothing
4. I tried to install via "install from file" and selecting the exporter .py file directly but nothing happens.
5. I checked version, I am sitting in 2.79 Blender and the script is for 2.78. I tried to fool Blender by changing the scripts version in to 2.79 but no luck.

Any way to get this thing to work on Linux and on this Blender version?

• Copying io_scene_gltf2 into scripts/addons as per the readme worked fine for me in 2.79b under Archlinux. Have you tried refreshing Blender? – gandalf3 Mar 31 '18 at 19:00
• To which exact path did you copy the file into if I may ask? Also, what do you mean by refreshing? Restarted many times if that's it. – Mikko-Pentti Einari Eronen Mar 31 '18 at 19:02
• I copied glTF-Blender-Exporter/scripts/addons/io_scene_gltf2 to ~/.config/blender/2.79/scripts/addons/io_scene_gltf2. Restarting Blender would certainly do it; there's also a refresh button in the bottom right corner of the addon list – gandalf3 Mar 31 '18 at 19:04
