Any chance on getting a package for ubuntu 16.04?
« on: August 19, 2016, 11:15:14 PM »
The 14.04 package was greatly appreciated, but that operating system is 2 years old and the ubuntu upgrade path has finally made 16.04.1 available to those of us on 14.04LTS.  The bottom line is that people who are using 14.04 will be upgrading, or have already upgraded, to 16.04.  And when they do, meshmixer will go away.

Hello

You could try 2.9 and the solution i did reply in http://meshmixer.com/forum/index.php?topic=2013.0

If you have all needed libraries, why not.

Hy,

I'm under the 16.04.1 LTS version (xenial). I have the problem with libboost.1.54. The xenial version is on libboost.1.58 !
A solution is to run it with wine. It crashes at startup many times, but once launched, it works well.

If someone find a solution...

Best,
Christophe

Hi,

I add my voice to this pledge for an update of the linux version of meshmixer to 3.0, that would run on ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I don't have admin rights on my Windows machines, but i do have them on my linux HPC servers.
Meshmixer would definitely help my Computational Fluid Dynamics projects. It would make it easier for me to work with the rest of the engineering team, who use Autodesk products (AutoCAD, Revit, etc.)

Thanks a lot, to all the development team.
Olivier

Thank you for your feedback and your interest in the Linux version of Meshmixer. At the moment, Meshmixer team is very small and doesn't have a dedicated Linux developer. If the team grows in the future we can consider adding it to the roadmap. Meshmixer is a free software and we're working with a limited budget. Thank you for understanding!
