Autodesk Maya 2012 Installation on Linux Mint 13 or Ubuntu

Postby vfxpandit on Tue Oct 02, 2012 1:56 pm

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!

To fix your problem you have to change the Key to move the windows (by default it’s ALT so it interfere with Maya).If you are on Gnome go to systems>preferences>windows and change the key to SUPER.

Finally figured out how to install mudbox and maya. Fixed all my control problems. Now I just need to figure out how to install FBX plugin. Can't use alien. Can't make apparently either. Any ideas?

You need to install alien before you can convert the .rpm files to .deb files.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alien

WoWoW - what an awesome post!! I am so impressed!

GOSH- I made it to set 14 before I became "stumped"

Please help me finish this amazing install..

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


THIS IS WHERE> I'm totally lost. I have the mayaInstall .c file created and saved in the proper directory - how do I: compile mayaInstall.c with that command??

I am a complete total rookie to linux and the terminal, but it was truly fascinating to watch the terminal in action! Whew - that was amazing (for me)!!!

Hats off to the "genius" that posted these instructions!!

Excellent post, thank you for taking the time to write this. I am having some issues at the end when linking libssl.so.0.9.8 and libssl.so.6. I ran through the steps as you had them laid down and when I try to open maya I get the error below. When I try to run those commands it says those file already exist, however when I manually navigate and open those folders those files are nowhere to be found. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Code: Select all
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$ maya
/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/bin/maya.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
kapacs@LINUX:~$ cd /usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib/
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$ ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4.3.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/libtiff.so.3': File exists
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$ ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libssl.so.6
ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/libssl.so.6': File exists
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$ maya
/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/bin/maya.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$ ^C
kapacs@LINUX:/usr/autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib$



UPDATE: I have copied a libssl.so.6 file present in /usr/lib to the lib folder of autodesk maya and it still gives me the same error.

UPDATE2: I have linked the libssl, I also linked libcrypto.so.6 to libcrypto.so.0.9.8 in the /usr/lib folder and then copied them to the /autodesk/maya2013-x64/lib folder. Once I bypassed the libssl.so.6 problem it went to libcrypto, after I got figured out I type maya in console and the console doesn't do anything. It just freezes and I just have to force quit the terminal.

UPDATE3: I have copied libcrypto.so.0.9.8 from /usr/lib to maya2013-x64/lib folder and linked it to libcrypto.so.6 present also in that exact same folder, successfully fixing the broken link. Typed maya in terminal and got the following error:

Code: Select all
kapacs@LINUX:~$ maya
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


UPDATE4. I have deleted the libcrypto and libssl files from the /autodesk directories then redid the connection for both libssl and libtiff files in the x64_64linux folder as written in the tutorial. The connection was successful however now when I type maya in the terminal it freezes and fails to launch once again.
