I want to reinstall my blender application because the ffmpeg file output is not showing. I am trying to uninstall it but I think its not removing totally.
Is there some folder I need to delete like
~/.local for this to install fresh?
The blender configuration is located at
~/.config/blender/. So you could just remove that and test first.
rm -fr ~/.config/blender
Or back it up, so that there’s something to restore if you wish:
mv ~/.config/blender ~/.config/blender.backup
Hope this helps!
FYI, blender has a rather slow release cycle, so dependencies may become “too up-to-date” for it here. You might want to use a (user) local version by downloading it from the official website, or its Snap/Flatpak package.
thank you for info sir. this became a problem mostly I’m in a production studio. can’t pass a WIP update of the scene because theres no ffmpeg output. for now, I try installing blender on steam. works well.
If you are running the updatedb service, you can use the locate comand (
locate blender). Or to check your $HOME directory use find (
find $HOME -iname 'blender'). To see what files an application touches when it starts/stops (within 1 minute) use find (
find $HOME -newermt "1 minute ago").
systemctl list-timers updatedb.timer # timer
systemctl status updatedb.service # service
pacman -Qi mlocate # package
