@aquarius

Perhaps so, however, Maya 2017 can also be acquired for free via a student licence, which, as far as I know, as no limits.

Hello everybody! We need an explanation.

1) maya developers(Autodesk) provide free educational license (full functional) only for 2016.

2) Not everything can be done in the PKGBUILD. Because user need to obtain a personal license key to register. Then put it into console license installer.

3) Register any licenses (for 2016 or 2017) also required to run GUI applications that can not be done from the PKGBUILD

I was looking for ways how to simplify (real arch way) the installation of an educational (one-seat) license in 2016, but did not really find it.

QuartzDragon, yeah, the rpm is inside the tgz in this case. You need to extract it manually, but you can do that with bsdtar instead of pulling in a useless makedep on rpmextract.

@Scimmia

Good to know! I'll fix it up. :)

Edit:
Without rpmextract, the RPMs never get extracted, though... :/

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-22 03:07

QuartzDragon, also, all of the copying and linking you're doing in the install script should be done in the PKGBUILD. These files need to be tracked by pacman.

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-22 03:05

QuartzDragon, your PKGBUILD looks much better, but please get rid of rpmextract. makepkg already uses bsdtar, and it will extract rpms just fine without the useless wrapper script (rpmextact.sh just calls bsdtar anyway).

Thanks @QuartzDragon and @csaez, it's working with the 2017 version.

I had to add this to work:

LC_ALL=C // Fixes the "Singular matrix, no inverse" Error
MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1

Updated .desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Autodesk Maya 2017
GenericName=Maya
Comment=3D modeling, animation, rendering and post-production
Keywords=3d;cg;modeling;animation;painting;sculpting;texturing;rendering;render engine;python;
Exec=/usr/bin/env LC_ALL=C /usr/bin/maya # Setting LC_ALL=C
Icon=/usr/autodesk/maya2017/icons/mayaico.png
Terminal=true # Terminal=false was causing my maya to crash on splash
Type=Application
Categories=Graphics;3DGraphics;

@QuartzDragon
MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1 disables the Customer Involvement Program (aka telemetry), I've no idea why it crashes on me but I saw a comment warning about it a few messages back and it totally fixed it.

My desktop file looks like this, it refers to maya 2017 but you can adjust the paths to whatever makes sense (/usr/share/applications/maya.desktop).

Name=Autodesk Maya 2017

Cheers!

@csaes

Odd, I don't have to set the variable for Maya to run. What does it do?

Also, can share the .desktop file you created?

csaez commented on 2016-11-18 02:29

Thanks QuartzDragon!
It worked great, I had to install a few extra things in order to run it, but your package handled most of the installation.

Missing system dependencies:
- gamin
- audiofile
- e2fsprogs-libs
More on this here: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/maya/troubleshooting/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2016/ENU/Installation-Maya/files/GUID-D2B5433C-E0D2-421B-9BD8-24FED217FD7F-htm.html

Fonts (msfonts alternatives)
- xorg-fonts-75dpi
- xorg-fonts-100dpi
- xorg-fonts-misc

I also had to set MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1 in order to run it (otherwise it segfaults on the splash screen) and I added a .desktop file for convenience.

I hope this helps someone else trying to get Maya working on arch,
Cheers!
