Hey guys… several years ago, it used to be necessary to set a bunch of environment variables including MAYA_LOCATION, PYTHONPATH, in order to get maya2egg to function. At the time, I didn’t like this: I wanted maya2egg to work out-of-the-box, so I wrote a little program called “mayawrapper” which would masquerade as maya2egg, would set the environment variables correctly, and would then launch the real maya2egg (aka “maya2egg-wrapped”).
I downloaded Panda3D 1.6.2 the other day and found that we’ve experienced a regression - it’s once again necessary to fiddle with the environment variables.
Does anybody know what happened? Is mayawrapper still part of the system? If so, does anyone know why it’s not working?
