[ubuntu] Downloaded software not fully accessible

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I downloaded software from the provider's website - Blender 2.63 3d graphics. Works fine.. But software-center and open-with functions don't know it is available on my system. I downloaded from Blender because software-center still has the old 2.49. How can I clue my system in to new software? (Hardware)
