Arch Linux + Kdevelop + Irrlicht 3D + Blender

Filed under
Linux
Software

If you’re into any type of 3D development in Linux be sure to give Arch a try with your 3D tools. The i686 compiled binaries offered up by Arch Linux gave me a little more of an edge, especially when it came to developing models in Blender and running them in the Irrlicht 3D engine. The performance is actually fairly amazing when compared to Windows XP, Windows 7 and even Ubuntu.

The Irrlicht 3D Engine is a super fast, high performance open source 3D engine. The software was developed in C++ and comes with some .NET bindings (although unstable). What attracted me to Irrlicht was the fact that it compiled from source with out a hitch and it was fairly easy to get started. I played with Microsoft’s XNA (3D game development using DirectX) tools and I actually hard more difficulty understanding their API than Irrlicht’s. With just a few lines of code in Irrlicht you can display and even animate a 3D model.

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
