I just ran a python script in blender.

However it gave me an errror:

Python script failed, check the message in the system console.

enter image description here

I've searched online but i can't find the system console. I have two terminals open to the blender file already but it did not show any error message.

I am using Ubuntu 19, with Blender 2,80

  • $\begingroup$ Please clarify the platform you are on (Linux, Mac, Windows) and the version of blender (I'm assuming 2.8). $\endgroup$ – avatar Jul 20 '19 at 12:04
  • $\begingroup$ @avatar It's Linux, you can see that by looking at the path and the console ("Red Hat") $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Jul 20 '19 at 12:16
  • $\begingroup$ The error is displayed above the line marked in red on the terminal/console (second screenshot right hand side). It can't find the key called "Cube", likely because there is no object called "Cube" in the scene. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Jul 20 '19 at 12:18

Here, Window, Toggle System Console enter image description here

But if you run on linux / mac perhaps you need to see if you run Blender from terminal usually from that you going to find the error

    $\begingroup$ ah,, then you should check your terminal, based on your screenshot I can see the key error is right there, the error message that said you should see the system console probably not important in terminal because you already get the information in it compare to blender console. oh ya I remember linux and mac didn't have option to Toggle System Console, it just on windows $\endgroup$ – Bintang Senja Jul 20 '19 at 12:43
