    Hello,

    new user here. I’ve been trying to come to grips with Blender 2.8 (and .9) and thought perhaps BforArtists might be the right choice for me.

    I’ve downloaded the .deb package for Linux but the executable won’t launch. I’m on Elementary OS vs. 5.1.7 (an off shoot of Ubuntu). I keep getting a terminal error-

    /opt/bforartists/bforartists: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.28′ not found (required by /opt/bforartists/bforartists)
    /opt/bforartists/bforartists: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.29′ not found (required by /opt/bforartists/bforartists)

    which seems to be about a missing file for 64 bit linux. Any hints to install the missing pieces?

    Thanks,

    -Kurt

    Hi Kurt,

    Sorry for your troble. Our linux specialist is currently having a look at it. But the short story from what i was told is, your kernel is too old. And you cannot easily update LibC, which is part of the kernel ( i hope i have understood this part right ^^) . So i would suggest to update your Elementary OS.

    Kind regards

    Understood. Too bad about the kernel.

    Elementary is based on Ubuntu 18.04 Long Term Stable Release, which is of course older than the most recent, cutting edge Ubuntu. I understand the next version of Elementary will be based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

    I should be able to check BforArtists then.

    Thanks.

    Ubuntu 18.04 is indeed already outdated. That’s unfortunately the way it is with Linux, sorry :)
