To Install Blender on Linux is fairly easy. My friend just need to download blender here, and extract, go into the folder, then double click the executable file Blender.
Or if you prefer to use the terminal:
$ Cd && wget-c-O http://goo.gl/WD3ad blender-2.65a-linux-glibc211-i686.tar.bz2
$ Tar jxvf blender-2.65a-linux-glibc211-i686.tar.bz2
Mv $ blender blender **
$ Rm blender *. Tar.bz2
Run the blender with the command:
$ ~ / Blender / blender
Or install Blender in Ubuntu / LinuxMint with an easier way, you can just install via PPA by using this command in the terminal:
$ Sudo add-apt-repository ppa: irie / blender
$ Sudo apt-get update
$ Sudo apt-get install blender
Good luck ..
