The steam environment sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH with a libtbb.so.2 that is incompatible with our own. This wrapper scripts gives our own library priority. There is a more modern "Steam Linux Runtime" that can be used instead of the "LD_LIBRARY_PATH Steam Runtime" and which launches Blender, but it fails to detect GPU compute libraries. So that was not an option. Ref #107385 Pull Request: #109169
Blender Dev Tools
This repository is intended for miscellaneous tools, utilities, configurations and anything that helps with Blender development, but aren’t directly related to building Blender.
Some of the tools included may be used stand-alone, others expect Blenders source code to be available.
While this is a stand-alone repository,
some of the scripts which access Blenders source code assume this repository will be located at
tools within Blenders source code repository. At some point this may be included as a submodule.
Some tools also rely on the
blender binary, this is assumed to be located at:
The root directory of Blender’s git repository
Any tools for scanning source files to report issues with code, style, conventions, deprecated features etc.
Configuration for 3rd party applications (IDE’s, code-analysis, debugging tools… etc).
Scripts and utilities for working with git.
Programs (scripts) to help with development (currently for converting formats, creating mouse cursor, updating themes).
