However it is done with a old version and I am not sure if it will work with a current version of blender.
I read recently about Problems with binary drivers in Linux due to UEFI. This does not allow the kernel to load any unsigned modules (like the Nvidia binary driver). Apparently there is a solution to this. Then one can try to use this guide to install the binary drivers.

I found under this link good information about running python scripts from blender. This is something that is not solved sufficiently in blender. There is no concept of a working directory, users are motivated to place all their scripts in a special directory.

filename = os.path.join(os.path.basename(bpy.data.filepath), "myscript.py")
exec(compile(open(filename).read(), filename, 'exec'))
