Maya is kind of a pain to get running in Ubuntu because it's designed for a .rpm Redhat style distro. You have to do a lot of symlinking. But it looks like someone wrote a shell script to do it for 12 LTS and Maya 2013:

That will probably work on Ubuntu 12.10 as well, though I'd suggest using 12.04 LTS if this is for a workstation and production since it will have support for far longer (2017 versus 2014).

Hi
I tried to use that script but it doesn't really anything. Do I have to apply all the script at once or piece by piece???
Thanks

You need to use alien to convert the .rpms to .deb.

This is for 2012, but It should almost be the same.

Its theoreticly better to run Maya on a distro like RedHat or Fedora, or another .rpm based distro like OpenSUSE or CentOS.

How much experience do you have with Linux?

Hello AJ1,
I have tried to use this tutorial, and I also coverted the .rpm in to .deb using alien...but I get nowhere as well.

I am new to Linux so my experience it is very poor.
Any help ???

Could you maybe detail your problem a bit more?

Did you get the .deb package installed using dpkg?
