Hmmm.

I did a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

and It opens the editor, but when I try to render, it just sends output to the
terminal:

PATHS
  HOME        = /home/oem
  SYSCONF     = /etc/qtpovray/3.8/povray.conf
  USERCONF    = /home/oem/.qtpovray/3.8/povray.conf
  SYSINI      = /etc/qtpovray/3.8/povray.ini
  SYSINI_OLD  = /etc/povray.ini
  USERINI     = /home/oem/.povray/3.8/povray.ini
  USERINI_OLD = /home/oem/.povrayrc

So, no idea what's going on there...  I guess one of the ini files got
overwritten...


(Good to see you here and updating qtpovray.   Hope you're doing lots better.
Congrats on the new box   :) )

Nope - disregard, it's all good.

I just got home after loading 14 cords of firewood, and had someone talking to
me...   "multitasking with a new file while exhausted...."


Works fine.  :)

Yes, Now when I see "Mr" I get the earworm for Maurice Ravel's "Bolero" 
going in my head.

14 cords!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't even imagine, ... unless there was lots of heavy machinery involved.

The first time I ever processed 10 cords of firewood was over a whole weekend
with 5 other people - chainsaws, log splitter, beer, smoke, on the side of a
mountain - at night.  :|      (they were insane)

This firewood comes split and packaged in 18 lb bags - 90 per pallet, but they
have to be broken up and re-stacked onto pallets according to truck load and
order number.   So, I have an electric ride-on Crown pallet jack to move the
pallets around - but I still have to lift and stack it all by hand.

Got it done with a bit of help in 5 hours.  B)

Good times.    Strong body, strong mind.   ;)


But lemme tell ya- between the lifting and the steering, I can really feel it in
my trapezius...

HAHAHA!  I'm not THAT spectacular X-D... qtpovray works nice for me now since I
sometimes have to switch unexpectedly between Windows, Linux, etc, it's good to
have more tools as alternatives. Especially the image preview looks very nice
docked with QT. I don't know yet how to use the breakpoints but this makes me
curious.

I am a first time qtpovray user.

Does the program not use an INI file for settings?

How do I set up multiple include paths?

Thanks.


Mike

Under Windows, any current version.

In povray.imi, you need something like this :
Library_Path="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

You can have any number of «Library_Path», and they'll be explored in order.

And, in pvengine.ini, lines like this :
[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=%PROFILEDIR%
3=%FONTDIR%
4="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

The first 3 lines shoupd already be present. Don't change them.
The paths here must match those added in povray.ini.

The paths in povray.ini tell where to look.
The paths in pvengine.ini tell where you are allowed to look.



Alain
