You should have a good knowledge about how to install software on linux and how to install add on packages for Blender-2.49 on your special version of linux. Some users have reported issues with installation. But we never have heard of a problem directly related to the Primstar/jass scripts themself. So if your installation works in general then you should have no issues to install the scripts. Here is a brief step by step installation instruction:

  1. Install blender-2.49b
  2. Install python-2.6.5
  3. Download the file (depending on which script package you have):
    1. For Jass-Pub:
    2. For Jass-Pro:
    3. for Jass-Magic:
  4. merge the folder “scripts” into your blender-system-scripts directory. So everything that you find in the scripts folder of the just downloaded jass-script zip file shall be copied as it is to the blenders system scripts folder.
  5. Optional: Download the JASS-2 startup page
  6. Optional: Open blender-2.49b, then open the just downloaded JASS-2 startup page.
  7. navigate to “File -> Save default settings” to permanently store these settings into your blender installation
  8. Start sculpting…

If you do not like the customized default screen (as it is configured with the JASS-2 startup page) , then in Blender navigate to “File -> Load Factory Settings” and you are back to the blender defaults (all add-on scripts (primstar) will keep available)

If you want to try out the Jass-Theme in Blender, then follow these steps:

  1. Help -> Scripts help browser
  2. In the Themes section you will find the “Jass” and “Primstar” themes. Select one of them
  3. Click on the “run script” button at the bottom of the current screen.
  4. Take care to replace the “scripts” window by the 3D view again (or any other window type of your choice)
  5. Make the settings permanent by File -> Save Default settings. Otherwise you will revert to the default upon next blender restart.
