Im installing panda3d to Sparky linux 5.0


#1

I use a debian based Sparky Linux.

Is there a preferred python version for Panda3d? Or are there any other little things I need to know to improve my usability of Panda3d?


#2

Now the installation can be done in python using the pip command example python3: python3 -m pip install --extra-index-url https://archive.panda3d.org/ panda3d

And you will get the necessary version for your python. Of course the choice of python is yours.


#3

The 1.10.0 version is already up on PyPI as of yesterday, so you can shorten that to this:

python3 -m pip install panda3d

You can run that with any Python version you’d like to use. Of course, if you can, I’d recommend the latest, or whatever version of Python 3 is shipped with your distribution.


#4

does that include all the samples?


#5

Nope, but you can download them separately from here:

And the samples for Bullet Physics here:

Or by checking them out from the GitHub reposiotry:

Thanks! They will be helpful to me.


#7

All the samples seem to run flawlessly!

Now I am going to start working thru the tutorials again.
