ISSUE: Unable to install on Ubuntu

Post by tushantin » Mon Mar 16, 2020 4:44 am

Hi, I'm new to Lux. I'm trying to install the latest Lux from the website onto the latest Blender 2.82a. It imports just fine, but I'm unable to enable the add-on. It gives the following error in the terminal.

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/cyan/Blender/2.82/scripts/modules/addon_utils.py", line 351, in enable
    mod = __import__(module_name)
  File "/home/cyan/.config/blender/2.82/scripts/addons/BlendLuxCore/__init__.py", line 23, in <module>
    raise Exception(msg + "\n\nImportError: %s" % error) from None
Exception: 

Could not import pyluxcore.

ImportError: libOpenCL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Any idea how I could fix this?

I use Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS, if that info is of any relevance.

You are missing an OpenCL driver for your GPU, install one or install the LuxCoreRender version without OpenCL support.
