Many thanks to ttc0419 for getting this set up and for writing these instructions originally.

Autodesk has updated the EULA for the Autodesk Education version. See here for more info. Note that the checksums for this package use the paid version, which may or may not be the same as the educational versions.

Installation Instructions:

To download the latest version of Maya, go to your Autodesk account Products and Services and save the Linux tgz file to any location of your choice.

Extract the tgz file to any location of your choice.

Maya is now split into several packages as it is for the official rpm installation. You will need the following files from the extracted tgz file to build some other packages as well:

  1. (required) Packages/adlmapps*.rpm to build adlmapps
  2. (required) Packages/adsklicensing*.rpm to build adsklicensing
  3. (required) Packages/Maya*.rpm to build this package
  4. (optional) Packages/ to build maya-arnold
  5. (optional) Packages/Bifrost*.rpm to build maya-bifrost
  6. (optional) Packages/AdobeSubstance3DforMaya*.rpm to build maya-substance, if you don't want to download directly from Adobe
  7. (optional) Packages/MayaUSD*.rpm to build maya-usd-bin, if you don't want to download directly from GitHub
  8. (optional) Packages/LookdevX.rpm to build maya-lookdevx

Packages 1 and 2 are required to use Maya and 4 to 8 are plugins that can be installed when needed.

You will need to move the rpm files to the directory containing the corresponding package's PKGBUILD file. Please refer to the AUR wiki for further installation details.

After installation, you may wish to enable the Autodesk Licensing service with systemctl enable adsklicensing.service. This service is started automatically one time when installing and removing this package.

Note that the install file will automatically register and deregister Maya with the licensing service if you are using the adsklicensing package. You may need to restart the adsklicensing service and reinstall Maya if adsklicensing was upgraded and running at the same time.

Launch Maya and log into your Autodesk account or enter your product serial to check out a license.

Please note that the Maya executable is patched to launch with the --single-process flag to address launch issues with the Application Home. You may try to opt out of this patch if this does not present an issue for you.


If you are having the following font error, Failed trying to load font : -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal-*-11-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 //, first try the Autodesk recommended commands with your normal permissions.

xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/100dpi
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/75dpi
xset fp rehash


If you are still seeing font errors, you can try one or more of the following:

  1. Install xorg-mkfontscale and run mkfontscale in /usr/share/fonts. Then re-run the xset commands above.
  2. Try running the xset commands with superuser permissions.
  3. Try enabling and generating the following locales: en_GB ISO-8859-1 en_US ISO-8859-1

If you are having licensing errors, you can refer to this comment/forum post by mac666er recommending you to only use the en_US.UTF-8 locale or this comment by TheSunCat recommending you to disable Wayland.

If your launch process hangs at the OpenCL initialization, you may wish to check for OpenCL conflicts as mentioned in this comment by TheSunCat. You may also need to rename/delete the intel-openapi icd file in /etc/OpenCL/vendors as mentioned here.

Hi guys, i've installed the new maya 2024 version, but i'm getting the error: 13998 segmentation fault (core dumped). Running it with the --single-process flag doesn't work. Any help? thank you

Running gdb using the -prompt flag works.

@meepzh Cloud you confirm the issue in the last a few comments? If so, the package should depend on opencl-driver now.

adro commented on 2023-03-25 20:35 (UTC)

I got it! I uninstalled every package related to opencl, maybe there was some conflict with opencl-nvidia and the other packages (as usual)

TheSunCat commented on 2023-03-25 17:20 (UTC)

I ran into the same issue after upgrading my system a few days ago. I noticed clinfo also freezes, so that confirms it was an issue with OpenCL. I believe what fixed it was installing rocm-opencl-runtime (I have an AMD gpu), as both clinfo and Maya now run fine. Maybe there's an Nvidia equivalent?

adro commented on 2023-03-25 16:07 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not able to run Maya. I think this a OpenCL problem (nvidia) since this is the last line when trying to run: OpenCL evaluator is attempting to initialize OpenCL.

Is anyone having the same issue?

TheSunCat commented on 2023-02-10 15:06 (UTC) (edited on 2023-02-12 14:49 (UTC) by TheSunCat)

EDIT: Figured it out. I had to unset QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland;x11. So is it impossible to run Maya in Wayland?

@mac666er I'm running into the ADLSDK_STATUS_LICENSE_CHECKOUT_ERROR but only have a single locale uncommented in /etc/locale.gen. LC_ALL is also set to en_US.UTF-8. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Here's my logs:

$ /usr/autodesk/maya2023/bin/maya2023

Also, this is rather obscure, but in Arch-linux, if using different system locales, then the authorization tool will NOT run:

I had to set a single system locale for it to launch successfully for the first time.

mac666er commented on 2023-01-03 05:11 (UTC)

installed this today and this repo was also extremely helpful:

Hi @SolidCapo, I've sent you a reply to your email. Best of luck! Also, thank you for the update @ttc0419- I've removed the dependency here as well.
