Mudbox 2012 x64 on Ubuntu 11.04

If you have installed Maya 2012 on Ubuntu 11.04, you can install Mudbox 2012 only, otherwise you'll need to install all stuff (flexnetclient, flexnetserver...) and check out if you have all required packages.

Let's enter Mudbox folder and create the deb packages:

 stefano@SERVER:~$ for i in *.rpm; do sudo alien -cv $i; done

Now we can install Mudbox (we need the force-overwrite option because, in most cases, Maya and Mudbox will install same files) . If you have Maya 2012 installed, run this command:

 stefano@SERVER:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite mudbox2012-0-64_2012.0-36_amd64.deb


 stefano@SERVER:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite *.deb

Now we have to create an empty file called install.env. Let's copy it to /var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/Mudbox2012:

 stefano@SERVER:~$ sudo cp ./install.env /var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/Mudbox2012

Run the following command to set a stand-alone license:

 stefano@SERVER:~$ sudo /usr/autodesk/mudbox2012/bin/licensechooser/usr/autodesk/mudbox2012/ standalone

Let's set our shared libraries for this session:

 stefano@SERVER:~$ sudo -i

 root@SERVER:~$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/R4/lib64/

Let's register Mudbox with the Autodesk licensing software:

 root@SERVER:~$ /usr/autodesk/mudbox2012/bin/adlmreg -i S 498D1 498D1 2012.0.0.F your_serial_number /var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/Mudbox2012/MudboxConfig.pit

done! We can run Mudbox now.

Best regards.
