Looks to me like a bug in Linux version. I'll do some fixes in the next version - please check the 17.9 beta after it gets released.
Regarding installer - I need the exact error message it gave you...
Thanks for your reply. Here is the error message from the installer as you requested:
cp: cannot stat ‘./autodesk/maya2020-x64/scripts/NETemplates/*.xml’: No such file or directory
./install_vre.sh: line 92: [: missing `]'
OctaneRender VR Enterprise for Maya was not installed. Try to use the extract switch and install it manually.
In regards to the new version 17.9, will that be for the 2020.1 RC1 or still for XB3?
