[SOLVED] How to open .BLEND file from CONSOLE? connect faile

Post#1 by testsforknowledge » 14 Mar 2013, 08:26

i wish to open .BLEND file (blender) from console window.
It gives me error "connect failed: no such file or directory". I type "blender -h test.blend" when i am in folder with that .blend file (checked with LS command)

What's wrong here? thnx

Please try with "dbus-launch blender -h test.blend".

Can you upload somewhere a blend sample file?

it can be any .blend file, and cannot be opened. But i think problem is with me not knowing how to...
i use Porteus 1.2, Blender 2.64a.


you can open .blend file from console just by typing "blender name_of_blender_file.blend"??? i just get errors ... maybe i need to set some path for loading somewhere?
