Install Blender on Ubuntu Linux

First of all, I want to leave here a link to the website DioLinux, as he did a tutorial how to install Blender on Linux, alias it has excellent content on the Linux platform, I highly recommend visiting!

Anyway, in this tutorial I will follow the standard installation for Ubuntu Snap Store to try to maintain a simplified form of installation.

O Blender is available on the Snap Store, so it makes our life a lot easier,

You can either go to the link, or open the Ubuntu Software on your computer via the icon: Ubuntu Software - Icon

The second step is to go to the search that is in the upper right corner of this screen that we opened, it is a magnifying glass, there you type "Blender" and press Enter.
