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

You can obtain Maya 2018 for Linux using the student method as described here:

https://knowledge.autodesk.com/customer-service/account-management/education-program/create-education-account/create-account-students-educators

The script needs to be updated accordingly (hashes, filenames, etc.) and can be run as a local package build (using makepkg....) I can post my adapted script if needed...

@luciferHasa It seems that Maya 2018 isn't available for "normal users" on Linux anymore.

Requires a multi-user license, not supported with single-user license.

hello will this be upgraded to maya version 2018.1 soon? :)

@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.

oljik commented on 2017-11-08 19:12

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
