HOW TO INSTALL MAYA 2012 64bit Linux Mint 13 or Ubuntu

step 01
download Autodesk Maya 2012 Hotfix 4
from here:-
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps … ID=9242259

step 02
we have to install required packages for Linux Mint

Open Terminal and paste these codes:-
sudo apt-get install csh tcsh libglw1-mesa libglw1-mesa-dev mesa-utils libaudiofile-dev libaudiofile0 libaudiofile0-dbg elfutils gamin libxp6 libxpm4 libxt6 libxp6 libxmu6 libxau6 libxinerama1 libxprintapputil1 libxprintutil1 xfs xfstt ttf-liberation ttf-mscorefonts-installer xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi alien

step03
copy downloaded tar file (autodesk_maya_2012_english_linux_64bit_hf4.tgz) in /home/Username/Maya2012_setup

step04

go to terminal and tpye:
cd /home/username/maya2012_setup

step05
tar -zxvf utodesk_maya_2012_english_linux_64bit_hf4.tgz

step06
for i in *.rpm; do sudo alien -cv $i; done

step07
sudo dpkg -i adlmapps4_4.0.35-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i adlmflexnetserver_4.0.35-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i adlmflexnetclient_4.0.35-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i maya2012-0-64_2012.0-327_amd64.deb

step08
create a temporary folder for Maya:
sudo mkdir /usr/tmp
sudo chmod 777 /usr/tmp

step09
$ sudo sh -c “echo ‘setenv LC_ALL en_US.UTF-8′ >> /usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/bin/maya2012″

step10
$ /usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/bin/licensechooser /usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/ standalone unlimited

step11
export a couple of variables

sudo -i
export MAYA_LOCATION=/usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/R4/lib64/

step12
pass the serial number and the product key to Maya

/usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/bin/adlmreg -i S 657D1 657D1 2012.0.0.F serial_number /var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/Maya2012/MayaConfig.pit

step13
navigate to our Maya2012_setup folder

cd /home/Username/Maya2012_setup

step14
create a file named mayaInstall.c in Maya2012_setup

open it with your text editor and paste this line:

int main (void) {return 0;}

save and compile it with this command:
gcc mayainstall.c

now you should have a file called a.out. Backup your /usr/bin/rpm with this command:

sudo mv /usr/bin/rpm /usr/bin/rpm_backup

and replace rpm with a.out:
sudo cp a.out /usr/bin/rpm

step15
type following command:-
./setup

this will start setup …. deselect DMM, backburner and go next

use these serial :-
serial :666-42943644
product key :657D1

step 16
cd /usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4.3.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libssl.so.6

step 17
Open /usr/autodesk/maya2012-x64/bin/maya2012 with a text editor and add the command
setenv LC_ALL C

after this line

setenv LIBQUICKTIME_PLUGIN_DIR “$MAYA_LOCATION/lib”

step 18
go to terminal and type:-

maya

Enjoy Maya and make cool effects and Animations :)

Cheers!

    Hey Rajiv,, I like all your posts on VFX and I’ve started to use and love Linux mint Kde. It was love at first site. For me Maya was workin just fine in windows no issues but realflow had it.. I wanna use Houdini and realflow in Linux.. for now only realflow.. But here’s is the deal.. realflow won’t run on Linux. I’m a novice in Linux i know its something i dint do or did wrong.. I referred to a tutorial in realflow forum which used fedora… but at the end of it all it says “command realflow not found”.. I would really appreciate and grateful if u made a similar “How to install” on realflow.. for linux mint.. All my friends have same problem and we don’t have any guys around us using Linux… and Linux for VFX esp… Help me out..Plz..

    THIS IS SOMETHING I USED TO CREATE A BASH FILE

    #.bash_profile

    # Get the aliases and functions
    if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
    . ~/.bashrc
    fi

    # User specific environment and startup programs

    PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin/realflow/bin

    export PATH

  5. Panels can be moved about to suit one’s preferences. This graphic designing computer software can be backed for that operating systems
    Linux, Apple pc OS IN THIS HANDSET By in
    addition to ‘microsoft’ windows. By doing this an animator is able to make real-looking face expressions (smile or blink) or sophisticated movements
    to bring life into computer-generated lines, points and surfaces.
