I encountered an issue the licence becomes invalid and cannot be deactivated. Here's the reply from agisoft support:

Please note that during the license activation of node-locked license an additional so-called "rehostable" directory is created. It is used later to validate the available license and stores the system parameters, that why it is important to deactivate the license before applying any major changes to the system, such as OS upgrade/re-install or hardware components replacement. 
The default location of the "rehostable" directory differs depending on the OS used:
on Windows - C:/ProgramData/Reprise/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
on Linux  -  /var/tmp/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
on macOS - /Library/Application Support/Reprise/agisoft/photoscan-pro/
It is possible to alter the default location by setting up AGISOFT_REHOST_PATH environment variable prior to the license activation. Use only safe location that wouldn't be cleared by any background services, as any modification of the "rehostable" directory contents including its removal will lead to the license invalidation.
During the activation and application utilization, please make sure that current user has access rights to the rehostable directory and folder where from Metashape Pro is started (the license file will be written to that folder).

If you decide to customize the rehsotable id folder location, make sure to do that prior to the license activation (set up env. variable, reboot and then activate Metashape license).

Metashape is using a 3rd party activation system developed by Reprisesoftware ( As far as we are aware, the following changes in hardware configuration would likely affect the activated license: adding/removing hard drive (HDD, SSD), adding/removing RAM modules, adding/removing GPU, replacing network card. Additionally MAC-address changes would affect the license, as well as major OS upgrades.

Therefore we recommend to deactivate Metashape license before any of these operations are applied to the system.

So make sure to deactivate the licence before any major system upgrade and then reactivate it.

To deactivate the licence, use

sudo agisoft-metashape-pro --deactivate

Check the forum thread here:
There is a workaround for installing external python modules.

Run the following command to activate the product

sudo agisoft-metashape-pro --activate 11111-22222-33333-44444-55555

NOTE: the number after "--activate" is your node-locked license

Thanks. @JeppeX. It's fixed now.

JeppeX commented on 2023-08-25 09:44 (UTC)

@dobedobedo Line 167 of PKGBUILD creates a rehostable dir that is not used. I think it is supposed to be licensing now that the environment variable refers to that directory.

Thanks. @JeppeX. Updated. You need to reactivate the licence to make it take effect.

JeppeX commented on 2023-08-24 15:46 (UTC)

The environment variable that specifies the license dir has been changed to AGISOFT_LICENSING_DIR. This current PKGBUILD doesn't change the dir from /var/tmp. Please fix.

I got it to work. Just had to delete lib/

This happened with a fresh install on two computers.

@ harpium, also see if this thread help

dobedobedo commented on 2022-01-13 14:13 (UTC)

Hi @harpium, do you have a log of the error message? Maybe submit the problem to the official forum to see if someone can help.

harpium commented on 2022-01-12 17:44 (UTC)

Suddenly the interface is just black. I can still access the menus with binds such as ALT + T. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi all,

I update the executable scripts to change the licence rehostable directory. The original rehostable directory is in /var/tmp, which can sometimes be wiped out. This is suggested by Agisoft support.

This upgrade will deactivate the licence for you to avoid it becomes invalid.

You will need to reactivate the product again after the upgrade. I'll remove this pre-upgrade licence deactivation in the next release.

Thanks, @harpium. Added opencl-amd as an optional dependency.
