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

After commenting out
# install "$pkgdir"/opt/Autodesk/MayaSetup
# rsync -av --exclude='*.rpm' ./ "$pkgdir"/opt/Autodesk/MayaSetup

i changed(line 31):
mv "$pkgdir"/usr/local/bin/maya "$pkgdir"/usr/local/bin/oriMaya
to:
mv "$pkgdir"/usr/autodesk/maya2016/bin/maya2016 "$pkgdir"/usr/autodesk/maya2016/bin/oriMaya

and(line 33)
cp "$srcdir"/maya_start.sh "$pkgdir"/usr/local/bin/maya
to:
cp "$srcdir"/maya_start.sh "$pkgdir"/usr/autodesk/maya2016/bin/maya

and it worked

I was able to make it work by commenting the following line in PKGBUILD
install "$pkgdir"/opt/Autodesk/MayaSetup
rsync -av --exclude='*.rpm' ./ "$pkgdir"/opt/Autodesk/MayaSetup

And using the instruction here for activating.

I also had to set MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1 to prevent a crash on loading.

Can't install it.

Try 'install —help' for more information.

Any advices?
