Bug Description

Binary package hint: blender

It's been a long time since a new stable build of Blender has been available in the Ubuntu repositories, and the new Blender 2.5 interface isn't even available yet without compiling source code or downloading unofficial packages. Because this is a new stable release, I believe it would be a good candidate for inclusion in Natty and/or Oneiric.

Hi guys

 I upgraded to Natty from Merekat (no problems with Blender 2.57) but when i started Blender the language is Chinese ( i think). I also tried the install in Voidcodes post above, but still get Chinese (i think) instead of English default.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Correction to above. Not a language problem. On closer inspection. The text seem to be scrambled

Note. Blender in above screenshot was installed via Ubuntu Software manager

I did install blender 2.5x and use it no problem.

The problem i do have is to keep the blender icon in the utility sidebar.

I think the manual installer does not correctly place the shortcuts, if anyone has a correct way to make the shortcut to the application and make it stick to unity if (keep in Launcher) is selected, Please let us know!

Thanks!
