I installed most recent blender from ppa:thomas-schiex/blender to get the most recent blender version. Starting blender now results in crash. Running blender inside terminal from directory /usr/lib/blender leaves me with
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: Unable to get the locale encoding ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'encodings'
So far I found out that I need to install python sources. To find them I installed Synaptic Package manager and searched for them and couldnt find them. Therefor I also ran
apt-get source python
I still get that error when I start blender from Terminal. Perhaps anyone knows how to resolve that?
