A list of required Maya 2009 dependancy packages in Linux

Many people out there, are doing great after following my tutorial, but those that does not run Ubuntu, often run into problems.

Before you post questions to this blog (post anywhere else if you want 😉 ) Make sure you install these packages either in .deb, .rpm or compile the shit from source. The names may differ slightly between distributions, so, search for something similar. The package manager and Google are good friends:

Maya 2009 64bit Font install / missing fonts in Fedora et. al

Missing fonts in Maya on Fedora, and other Linux distros

A problem with missing font files in Fedora, prevents some text and labels from displaying
properly in the program windows. For example, texture names may
not appear as expected below the texture icons in the Hypershade window.
Also some other packages needs to be installed on some distributions, not on Ubuntu, as I know of, but I’ll writ it down anyway.
Download and install the following rpm or .deb files (names vary slightly so make a search for something similar:

1. xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi
2. xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi
3. Xinet.d
4. tcsh
5. libXp (for both .i386 .x86_64)
6. libXp-devel (for both .i386 .x86_64
7. mesa-libGLw mesa-libGLw-devel )
8. gamin-devel (for libfam.so)
9. Autofs

Problems with Nokia N Series Phones?

I’ve always been a fan of Nokia’s N series line of mobile phones.
Ever since my first Nokia N72, I’ve used N series, except for a short period where I recently tried the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music phone.
Now it’s back to N series. Anyway, I recently had a problem that I googled about and tried different approaches for solving for days, with no success. The phone would not install software, no matter what. No new Maps, no new apps, no new nothing! I was completely stuck. All the phone said was “Unable to Install”. Not very informative… 😦

This may bee common knowledge for the techno/gadget geeks out there, but I found that by using the command:
*#7370#

I was able to completely format the phone, and it worked again! This command removes EVERYTHING on your phone. Contacts, messages, the works, so be sure to do a backup first…

Just as a tip for those that experience strange problems on Nokia N-Series phones.
I don’t know if this works on other models…
