System: Ubuntu 15.10 (so I can use GPU in Cycles since my GPU isn't supported for anything newer)
Installation: Installed with my Steam account since it makes keeping updated versions of Blender easier.
Hi, I installed an add on and it didn't work the first time. I installed by going to properties and addons and then install by file, next I selected the zip file and it didn't show my addon was installed and nothing changed after I clicked on save.
So I restarted Blender, and it still didn't show so then I clicked install by file and selected the .py files in the folder after I extracted them.
Then Blender complained that multiple addons installed with the same name. Rather than trying to figure out which one installed to what location I just deleted the entire /scripts folder. Now when I start Blender it crashes immediately.
I tried to re-verify the files within Steam. That didn't work, then I tried downloading a Blender from it's website. It will launch from its' own installation.
I replaced the entirety of the Steam Blender folder with the new one I downloaded. It will not launch from within Steam, but if I launch it from the file browser it launches.
I clicked on reload default startup file. That should tell Blender to not install any mods that aren't default ones (pretty sure that's what I needed). I clicked save startup and then removed Blender from Steam and then re-downloaded.
After re-installation within Steam I checked the addons folder. It contains all the addons I previously had selected. After trying to launch it, it still will not launch from within Steam. I'm out of ideas.
Does anybody else have any?
