[Linux] Environment variables and installing nuke plugins

Recommended Posts

Having a heck of a time simply trying to install PG Bokeh for Nuke 11 NC on my Ubuntu setup.

My understanding is you need to alter the environment variables for Nuke?

 

Feedback direct from peregrine said I should edit my .bashrc file

 

So, I added the following line to my bash.bashrc file in /etc/

Quote

export NUKE_PATH=/home/jim/Nuke11.0v2

 

And copied the downloaded PG Boken blugin folder to the plugins folder inside the above Nuke directory

What is the difference between bash.bashrc and the hidden .bashrc in my home directory?

If I try and edit the latter I get an error 'editing files in a writable directory is not permitted'

Still no luck

Can anyone help?  Wouldn't it be easier to make the plugin an actual installer?

Probably because NC doesn't work with compiled plugins IIRC. You'd better also get used to Unix style installations as an installers are not really every going to happen for high-end customised software.

yes - it's super slow as it's single threaded but is very good quality. So you should use ZDefocus when setting up and copy those settings/look to render in PgBokeh. Use ZDefocus if you can as it's GPU accelerated and does everything except deep defocusing.
