I'm trying to install an addon called Panorama-Tracker, here's the link to it: https://github.com/dfelinto/Panorama-Tracker
The author mentioned that commands should be pasted in a terminal before installing the addon, I copied the commands, run Text Editor in Blender, pasted the commands and hit Run Script, I got an error of check Console, checking the console I saw nothing. I'm sure I'm doing it the wrong way, is there a possibility someone can show me how to do it right?

  • $\begingroup$ That is the text editor (lhs of image). You want to open a terminal of your operating system . Which OS are you on? This is the console to check for errors too, ie the system console blender.stackexchange.com/questions/6173/… not the python console (on rhs of image) $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jun 4 '16 at 16:34
  • $\begingroup$ no need to use git to clone the repo , You can simply download those 6 .py files with your browser , zip them and install that zip as an addon. $\endgroup$ – user2816 Jun 4 '16 at 16:40

Blender expects addons to be a zipped directory of python scripts.
if somehow installing an addon gives the error failed to get addon path , investigate the addon and make sure it has the following structure.

addon.zip
   |
   |--directory_name/
          |
          |--__init__.py
          |--script.py
          |--script2.py
          |--etc...
