Hi,

Maya 2017 does not run by default on Fedora because it needs libtiff version 3 but Autodesk does not bundle it and it’s not in fedora packages.

Did you copy / rename your system’s tiff library as libtiff3.so ?
In that case, can you try removing the libtiff you copied and replace it by the one included in the appleseed plugin lib folder?

Our libtiff in the package is built from sources and it’s the exact version needed by Maya.

Est.

On a somewhat related point, a symbolic link named $MAYA_LOCATION/lib/libtiff.so.3, pointing to /usr/lib64/libtiff.so.5 works fine with Maya in general, though the prebuilt appleseed-maya package might actually expect a libtiff 3.7.2.
