How to launch Loki from the command line?

Usage: java -jar LokiRender-<ver>.jar [<BlenderExe>] [<MasterIP>]
Examples:
java -jar LokiRender-071.jar
java -jar LokiRender-071.jar /path/to/blender
java -jar LokiRender-071.jar 192.168.17.45
java -jar LokiRender-071.jar /path/to/blender 192.168.17.45

Loki will start in grunt command line mode (no GUI) if a blender executable is provided as an argument.

Mac users: How can I select the Blender executable?

You have two options:

1. Under 'Preferences' > 'Local Grunt', type the blender path directly into the path field, including the portion of the path that extends into the blender.app file. Don't click 'Browse'. For example:

/path/to/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/blender

OR

2. Create a symbolic link pointing to the Blender executable that's inside the blender.app file.

For example, if your user name is 'jerry' and the blender.app is sitting in your home directory, you could do this:

ln -s /Applications/Blender/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/blender /home/jerry/blenderLnk

Then, when Loki asks for the Blender executable, just point to the newly created symbolic link:

/home/jerry/blenderLnk
