hello ! so i'am gonna explain what i've done so far! even that this will be rough but would be
of some help maybe !
so it was on linuxmint 5 gnome version wich is based on ubuntu 8.04...and it's the best distro
i've found so far (installed and tried really much you know).
open the synaptic package manager
and check if you have the libraries needed by xsi are installed:http://www.softimage.com/support/xsi/s. ... linux.aspx
've made a search of them one by one
but 80% were already there
so get your spm licence installed first.
click and drag the spm setup from it's folder to the terminal!
after spm instalation chose your licencse and usual stuff as on windows!
and start your licence sever your LS should be runing know.
click and drag XSI setup from it's folder to the terminal
click typical install noramaly
then wait untill it finishs instalation
now got to xsi 7instalation folder /application /bin
and click and drag the XSi file into a terminal(not xsi.bin and not xsibatch)
and press enter
wait a moment (a long moment)
and it will start normally but will work really really slowly
then what you need and what i need and what i wasn't been able to do so far
is recompling libx11 without xcb support.
and normally a local copy of this in the application/lib xsi directory would let xsi work with that copy when all your s.ysteme will use xcb for other stuff
so if anyone could show us a step by step tutorial on how to recomplie libx11 without
xcb support to put it in the xsi lib folder
thx alot in advancehttp://www.xsibase.com/forum/index.php?board=30;action=display;threadid=37987
