I just installed Debian 10. I've downloaded Blender 2.80 64-bit from the official site. When I double click the "blender" executable nothing happens. When I open a terminal in the same folder and run ./blender, I get the following error ./blender: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error. I've got a 64-bit installation.

How can I fix this error? Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ Have you downloaded Blender for Linux 64-Bit? Perhaps you accidentally downloaded the Windows version. The file should be blender.org/download/Blender2.80/… $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, yes, I have verified that I've downloaded for Linux, and the 64-bit version. $\endgroup$

$\begingroup$

linux do not use .EXE extensions to run applications, and do not use binaries very often if they are not necessary, you wrong to download blender because I do not download it from LINUX, blender org identifies your system and your generals from your pc, it is quite intrusive, and gives you the right version for your pc and system

and this would be the manual way to get blender for debian 64 bits

NOTE: DEBIAN & UBUNTU they have blender maintainers check both distributions pages and you can install the DEB file for your system

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, yeah I've downloaded the correct one for Linux on blender.org/download. It automatically took me to the download option for Linux. When I extracted it, I ran the blender - the gear icon file. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Also, I don't see a deb file. When I right click and go to properties it says application/x-executable $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I had been using Ubuntu for about 5 years. But it's been about 3 years since I've used it. However, I'm now on Debian with KDE. The Ubuntu ppa and Software Centre made stuff really easy but I felt it was too bloated so I switched. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ well ... I need to review many things what I ask is almost implicit and the solution is in the same question, if I use debian! Where do I have to go find my application? to debian of course! debian has in its official list a list of application maintainers that are available for debian $\endgroup$
