I am trying to run blender 2.8 headless on raspberry pi 3b+ running raspbian. I have downloaded the Linux version from the blender website. But whenever I open the executable called “blender” in terminal, a window appears for a split second and the disappears. Also, after executing, a new empty text file appears in the folder with a crazy name (shown below). I am wondering what I am doing wrong and if it is possible.
I have tried installing blender in the following way:
sudo apt-get install blender
But this just gives me the 2.79 version. I have heard that pi doesn’t support the version of OpenGL used in blender 2.8, but I also heard that if you use 2.8 headless, it doesn’t require OpenGL.
Thanks in advance!
