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.

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.
