Although RPM packages are typically installed via command line, some Linux distributions have GUI-based package managers, like gnomerpm. Some distributions will also allow for double-clicking the RPM file in a directory browser, which will invoke RPM with default arguments.

- RMANTREE - establishes the location of your PRMan distribution.
- RMANFB - establishes your framebuffer display program.
- path - establishes the searchpath for the execution of programs, this probably already exists, so it is just a matter of adding $RMANTREE/bin to your path.
- RDIR - specifies a directory where additional configuration files can be found, e.g. a site-specific rendermn.ini file.
RenderMan for Maya users should consult the RenderMan for Maya (RfM) documentation for more information about RfM-specific environment variables.
RenderMan for Katana users should consult the RenderMan for Katana (RfK) documentation for more information about RfK-specific environment variables.
Systems administrators may also choose to use the PIXAR_LICENSE_FILE variable to point to their software license, in lieu of using the defaults, or may point to an arbitrary location for their license via the /licenseserver preference in their own custom, site-specific .inifiles, and absolutely should not add that preference to a factory-shipped .ini.RenderMan for Maya users should consult the RenderMan for Maya (RfM) documentation for more information about RfM-specific environment variables.
If you wish to use a location other than the default for your pixar.license file, you can optionally set a PIXAR_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to an arbitrary location.
