[ubuntu] ./blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.6.so.1.0

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I am having some trouble getting an old version of blender to run. I installed blender 2.49b-linux-glibc236-py26-i386. This one needs python 2.6 (hence the 'py26' in the name of the blender file). So I installed Python 2.6 (alnd also 2.5, 2.5.6, 2.6.7, 2.7 & 3.2) using pythonbrew. I run python 2.6 temporarily in the terminal before trying to execute the blender binary. However when I run the executable I get: './blender: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.6.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.' I also tried changing the pythonpath variable us (Hardware)
