About a month ago I wiped my workstation and started fresh with a CentOS 7 minimal install. In the process of getting up and running, I needed to reinstall Autodesk Maya and all of the dependencies that go along with it. In order to expedite this process for myself in the future and for others, I whipped up a quick shell script that takes care of all of Maya’s dependencies.
Over the past few months I’ve been seeing a bunch of posts in the Autodesk AREA forums and other sites asking about the Linux version of Maya for students and installing Ext 1. I’m hoping that through this post you will begin to understand what is required to accomplish these things and why you should wait for Maya 2017. I should emphasize that this post is geared towards students and not subscription members.
