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

@oljik: Just upload the pkgbuild to pastebin and I'll have a look at it. If it's good (and working), I can replace it and give you co-maintainer rights.

@oljik Hey, i would really love to get your PKGBUILD for Maya. Would be nice if you could upload it here on AUR.

I have built my own PKGBUILD 2 years ago, by reading houdini and many PKGBUILDs.
However, I didn't have time to upload it. Then I went to windows. Now I am back and will upload them soon. You can delete this package. I have better packaged one. It can be used for all maya version to install seperately and Adlmapps, FlexnetServer/Client have seperate pkgbuild with systemd service files for selective install.
I didn't add maya-setup like you. Does someone need it? I think adlmapps is working fine for registration.

yup, @z3ntu, i put in my licence and it still gives me maya: Autodesk Maya 2017Licensing ErrorA licensing error occurred that Autodesk systems were not able to handle for you. Please contact Autodesk Customer Support for help in resolving this error.GetFeatureAuthorizationStatus 1 (Failure)

z3ntu commented on 2017-09-22 08:58

@Shadowlabs: So you ran the installer first (sudo /opt/maya-setup/setup) and entered your license there? I can't really help you with the issue as I have problems with the software myself but I took over maintainer status as I updated the application to a newer version.

Shadowlabs commented on 2017-09-21 20:42

@z3ntu it still isnt verified despite me putting my licence in the installer... what does it say when it works for you? because if i launch it from terminal i get [lotus@Lotus-Hackintosh ~]$ maya2017

@Shadowlabs: The /opt/maya-setup/setup application will show you "installation failed" but this error is expected (as the setup application activates maya so you can use it normally)

i Cant seem to install the package, I'm stuck at the "Can not launch RPM Executable" error, im pretty new to this, how can i fix it?

naelstrof commented on 2017-08-17 21:20

The PKGBUILD needs QT4 added as a dependency, also for those of you who get an error like this while running the setup:
X Error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) 10
Extension: 130 (MIT-SHM)
Minor opcode: 1 (X_ShmAttach)
Resource id: 0x145

You can run the setup like this to fix it:
sudo QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 /opt/maya-setup/setup
