Well, trying to use the manual version of the exporter, and after place all where the install.txt says, I get an error and I am unable to load the luxplugin on Maya. The truth is that in the install.txt says:
3. Copy the contents of "src/attrPresets" to:
~\Documents and Settings\*username*\My Documents\maya\*version*\presets\attrPresets\
This in Linux would be /Home/"user"/maya/"version"/presets.
But in this folder doesn't exist any "attrPresets".
Then (after the error), I've find the real "attrPresets", that, at least on linux ubuntu its in:
/usr/autodesk/maya/presets/attrPresets (In the main Maya path, not the "My Documents", <</home/user/maya on linux>> one).
So, I placed it the files of this folder and the message I can read in Script Editor after try load lux is:
# Traceback (most recent call last):
# File "/usr/autodesk/maya/bin/plug-ins/luxPlugin.py", line 31, in <module>
# from Lux.LuxNodes.luxshader import luxshader
# ImportError: No module named Lux.LuxNodes.luxshader //
// Warning: Failed to run file: /usr/autodesk/maya/bin/plug-ins/luxPlugin.py //
// Error: (luxPlugin) //
I'm using luxrender package that comes with Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope package manager. I can't install Maya Exporter neither with installer nor with manual exporter.
Today is not my day, or LuxRender Jaunty package is only oriented to Blender?.
