Install Blender 2.66 in Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin/11.10 Oneiric Ocelot/Linux Mint 14/13/12

Blender provides a broad spectrum of modeling, texturing, lighting, animation and video post-processing functionality in one package. Through its open architecture, Blender provides cross-platform interoperability, extensibility, an incredibly small footprint, and a tightly integrated workflow. Blender is one of the most popular Open Source 3D graphics applications in the world.
