I've use the Ubuntu 14.04. Know anyone how can I install the latest version of blender from terminal? And after that how can I make cycle render work?

    $\begingroup$ Could you clarify what you mean by the "last version"? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 12 '15 at 23:40
  • $\begingroup$ The last version of blender... 2.75a $\endgroup$ – Vildnex Aug 13 '15 at 0:05
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you want.. If you uninstall blender, how do you plan on running cycles? (unless perhaps you want to use the standalone version of cycles, without blender?) $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 13 '15 at 0:09

    $\begingroup$ Oh, I see.. Sorry about that (idk what my eyes were thinking). What exactly do you mean by "install from terminal"? You can "install" it multiple ways (install from PPA, or extract the zip) via the CLI, what exactly do you want to achieve (why from the terminal specifically)? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 13 '15 at 0:12

It sounds to me like you're asking for the package management command to revert to an older package. apt caches versions of packages and repositories often keep legacy packages around after an upgrade.

sudo apt-get install <package-name>=<package-version-number>

OR

sudo apt-get -t=<target release> install <package-name>

will install a specific version of the package in question (downgrade, upgrade, different architecture, etc).

To see all available versions of the package, run apt-cache showpkg <package-name>

If you wish to freeze a package at that specific version, run apt-mark hold <package-name>

I don't have any experience the terminal, but you might be able to achieve the same effect by using Steam. Blender can be downloaded for linux on Steam, which should setup a desktop icon as well. enter image description here I hope this helps, my experience with linux is rather limited (:
