As the title sais; I'd like to use my system's Python with Blender, instead of the internal one, but after searching for ~30 minutes I still couldn't find a way how, or at least not in words I understood.

    $\begingroup$ that one is about using modules from your system python, and though the most upvoted answer does have a method for using system Python, it doesn't work - it just makes it so Blender won't start. $\endgroup$ – Treehee Jul 28 '17 at 14:16
  • $\begingroup$ oh I think I migth have a different version of Python. Lemme check. $\endgroup$ – Treehee Jul 28 '17 at 14:18
  • $\begingroup$ As mentioned there, for it to work you must use the same Python version (which changes depending on Blender's version, and the correct bit version - 32 / 64) as that one used by Blender. Most likely that's why it doesn't work in your case. $\endgroup$ – TLousky Jul 28 '17 at 14:18
  • $\begingroup$ I just checked - I seem to have a slightly newer version of Python. $\endgroup$ – Treehee Jul 28 '17 at 14:20

$ blender --python-use-system-env Allow Python to use system environment variables such as 'PYTHONPATH' and the user site-packages directory.
