If you need Maya to work seamlessly on Linux, you should use the distro recommended by Autodesk (e.g RHEL/CentOS/Rocky for Maya 2023). However, it's possible to install Maya on other distros by applying various hacks which we discuss here.

Maya 2023 on Fedora 36

Install dependencies:

sudo dnf install libnsl
sudo dnf search libpng15
sudo dnf install libGLU
sudo dnf install libffi3.1

Install CUDA (if using proprietary NVIDIA drivers):

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda

Run with:

Disable splash screen, then run normally.
