I'm having trouble with my blender2crystal exporter. I am using ubuntu jaunty with blender 2.49. I have cel-1.9 and celstart-1.9 installed from packages. I'm just trying to get the exporter to work for the first time. I used .deb packages from the repositories at;
which allowed me to install a .deb package I found for blender2crystal from Angel Abad's repository for ubuntu jaunty.
When I installed the first packages, all dependencies were finally satisfied and I was able to install the blender2crystal .deb package. I also used the site;http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=124781
with the command;
sudo cp -vR /usr/lib/blender/* /usr/share/blender/
to copy files from the package default file folder to /usr/share/blender/ which worked and helped me avoid the no package with b2cs console error. I also use the command;
to export the variable so that blender2crystal can find the install directory. I checked the directory and it has files in it. However when I tried to use the exporter after doing all this, I still get an error at the console. The error message is;
Compiled with Python version 2.6.2.
Checking for installed Python... got it!

I checked the forums and it seems like there is another user that uses windows XP that has this same error so it doesn't seem to be just a linux related issue. I'm guessing that I have to make some other changes to make it work somehow. Does anyone know what the problem is? It doesn't seem platform specific since a windows user is having the same problem.
