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/bifrostshellnode.so
libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory //
// Error: line 1: libtinfo.so.5: 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/libtinfo.so.6 /usr/autodesk/maya2017/lib/libtinfo.so.5

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.

QuartzDragon commented on 2016-11-22 04:59

@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).

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Autodesk Maya 2017
GenericName=Maya

Exec=/usr/autodesk/maya2017/bin/maya

Terminal=false
Type=Application

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!

For those of you waiting for an update to this package, and want a working and extensively tested PKGBUILD for Maya 2017 Update 1 that just works out of the box without much configuration, in the meanwhile, use these:

PKGBUILD: https://paste.kde.org/peeik3fxd
maya.install: https://paste.kde.org/pbro1vkcc

Please tell me if anything needs fixing. :)

@th3od0re If I comment out those lines, it builds fine. But I can't figure out how you activated Maya. There's no /opt/Autodesk/MayaSetup without those lines of code. I don't know another way to activate besides running ./MayaSetup. So how did you manage to start Maya without "Segmentation Fault (core dumped)"?
