Tried to read .pov in Blender without success.

First, I tried on Ubuntu studio, latest version. I was not able to activate the
add-on because of some inexistant file or directory.

Then I downloaded the latest binary blender version on the blender server. I
checked that the fileI was rendered correctly using povray directly. But it was
not correctly rendered in Blender Only a grey plane appeared, whereas it was
supposed to show a person on a bike.
