When i downloaded the latest version of blender, this option show up in splash screen "Copy settings from previous".

So how to do it in command line? because I have 50 pc and I want to simplify the process using ssh and run blender from command line.

Thanks for your help.

Look at the tooltips, Mas Aditia, and you'll see that it's wm.copy_prev_settings. For remote deployment, it might also be necessary to quit_blender right after executing the script. So the simplest script would be:

import bpy


Save it as to a script file with any name, and execute Blender while running the script:

blender -P <script_name>.py

As the operator copies the config folder right away, nothing else needs to be done.

  • $\begingroup$ Uh, yeah, I forgot about -b switch. Great then, 'cause I think its usage makes quit_blender unnecessary :) $\endgroup$
