Command Line Installation
If you are not using the .rpm method above, the software can also be installed via command line using a terminal window. You must obtain the .pkg files using your forum login.

Setting Up the User's Environment
There are several environment variables that users should set. These can be added to your .cshrc, .tcshrc (or other startup) file, like so:

or, if you are using bash:
The following environment variables are recommended:
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.
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.
If you plan to take advantage of the Python binding you will need to download Python installer from www.python.org. RenderMan Pro Server 21 binding is compatible with 2.7, 3.4, or 3.5.
