# Where are the Blender program files in Ubuntu 14.04?

Can anyone tell me where the .blender directory is in Ubuntu 14.04?

I cannot find the .blender directory in my Ubuntu 14.04 system.

I need to know this location so I can put the MakeHuman add on sub-directories there.

• Thanks folks! The Blender program is where you told me it would be. It turns out I totally needed to put the MakeHuman directories into the "scrpts/addons" directory (which had to be created) for Blender to properly install them, as per the instructions at the MakeHuman web site. – Luke May 6 '15 at 6:50

By default: see the doc about directory layout

# LOCAL
./2.74/

# USER
$HOME/.config/blender/2.74/ # SYSTEM /usr/share/blender/2.74/  It's usually in ~/.config/blender/$version.

Note that you can also click Install from file in the user preferences (⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltU) to have blender put the scripts where they need to be (It'll even unzip them if they are zipped):

It seems to be an hidden directory (cause by the dot). A lot of applications create hidden diretories in your home (/home/yourusername/.dontknow) Look for a directory like this.

I'm not quite sure, I gonna try this later and submut my answer when I'm right

Done with Kubuntu 14.04 Blender 2.77 the MHK2 folder downloaded from https://bitbucket.org/ThomasMakeHuman/mhx2-makehuman-exchange/downloads which is a dropbox location you can not get the file unless you make an account with dropbox.

Location for blender to drop the folder to for the addon youll need to use sudo in teminal open terminal and type sudo dolphin terminal will want your password after that dolphin with open go to
