How does one install Blender plug-in on CentOS?

Question asked by lukedary on Jan 7, 2020

Just got amdgpu-pro with OpenCL support running on CentOS 8, and was hoping to try out the latest Blender 2.81a with the ProRender plug-in. Any help would be appreciated.

 

There is an OS check that specifically says the product is built for Ubuntu and that I may encounter errors...well, I did.

At the "Installing Dependencies" step I got this:

Error:
 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./install.py", line 129, in install_component
    yield
  File "./install.py", line 281, in <module>
    install_package('libfreeimage3')
  File "./install.py", line 269, in install_package
    if package_is_installed(package_name):
  File "./install.py", line 255, in package_is_installed
    text = subprocess.check_output(cmd).decode('utf8')

    **kwargs).stdout

Installing 'Dependencies' failed!
