Thread: Maya 3D on Opensuse

    Default Maya 3D on Opensuse

    hi everyone

    I decided to give Opensuse Linux a try, but I don't know wether it runs Maya 3D for Linux since it runs RPM packages like Fedora, or it has a problem doing that ?!

    Doesn't anybody have a clue about that ?

    Thanks in advance

    I have never run Maya myself but I found this one post here that might help.

    and this for Fedora:

    If you get it to work, you could add onto the openSUSE post with anything else you want to add.

    Thanks very much . I know it works on Fedora because the company calls the version Maya for Fedora Linux. But I was wondering wether it works on Opensuse like Fedora since Opensuse is also RPM based too. The problem is that Opensuse is different, so I hope the command I found in the thread you posted helps and fixes the whole stuff.

    But hey, could you kindly explain what this command does exactly ?! I am not professional and I am still not familiar with lib commands
    Thanks in advance

    When I search on http://software.opensuse.org/search I get two entries saying
    python-Mayavi

    I guess you did the same and that it is not what you are after. But you didn't say you did any search, thus in case ....

    In the past I have installed the rpm packages for Fedora, and they worked fine on openSUSE. But I'm not on track where it concerns differences between Fedora and openSUSE.
    Helped out a user in this thread http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ya-2012-a.html maybe it's helpful for you too.
