1. I downloaded the KhronosGroup addon from https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glTF-Blender-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?

  • $\begingroup$ 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? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ Mar 31 '18 at 19:02

    $\begingroup$ 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 $\endgroup$

Thank you gandalf3. My mistake was the path. I tried ~/.blender folder when in fact I had to copy the addon under ~/.config/blender/..

Works now, thank you again!
