If anyone wants to take over this package (or become co-maintainer) I'll gladly give it to you.

These bugs can be easily fixed:

echo "MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1" >> ~/maya/2017/Maya.env # w/o it maya segfaults
echo "LC_ALL=C" >> ~/maya/2017/Maya.env # w/o it maya gives singular matrix error

Also you need this to prevent constant Helvetica package errors:
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/100dpi/
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/75dpi/
xset fp rehash

After that, Bifrost will be telling about missing lib:
// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : /usr/autodesk/maya2017/plug-ins/bifrost/plug-ins/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory //
// Error: line 1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (bifrostshellnode) //

To fix that, install aur/libtinfo (symlink package to ncurses) and after that:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/autodesk/maya2017/lib/

@sid350 what i know is Maya only support Fedora and RHEL/CentOS with rpm. But days ago i tried to install it on my Fedora 31, via official installer and it says like yours "OS is not supported". I dunno how to install it on Fedora anymore. There is no new article about how to do it. I still hope i can install Maya 2020 in my EndeavourOS via this AUR :( still waiting

What about Maya 2020? When I try to install it via official installer it says OS is not supported :(

Can you give me access as co-maintainer? I would gladly accept it :)

Maya 2019 is now supported for Linux.

Time to update the installer...

aquarius commented on 2018-09-29 22:38


post your update, i update script

joksim commented on 2018-09-29 20:10

You can obtain Maya 2018 for Linux using the student method as described here:

The script needs to be updated accordingly (hashes, filenames, etc.) and can be run as a local package build (using makepkg....) I can post my adapted script if needed...

@luciferHasa It seems that Maya 2018 isn't available for "normal users" on Linux anymore.

Requires a multi-user license, not supported with single-user license.
