meshmixer for Linux
« on: February 13, 2015, 03:55:32 PM »
We've been putting it off for years, but Meshmixer for Linux has finally arrived!

We are not really Linux users, and definitely are not Linux software developers. So, this is still an experiment. We have Meshmixer running on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit, so that is what we are providing a package for. We are using the apt package system, and our understanding is that you probably can install our .deb on other Linux distros. But we've only tested it on Ubuntu 14.04. Also, the linux version is meshmixer 2.7 - we should have 2.8 working on linux soon.

Installation still requires a few steps, so we have instructions on the linux download page: http://www.meshmixer.com/linux.html.

Because we kind of expect there to be some problems, we have created a separate board for Linux support: http://meshmixer.com/forum/index.php?board=8.0. Please do not hesitate to post with comments or suggestions, and also we will really appreciate any help you can give to users who are having trouble.
