If Maple is having trouble activating or if no activation window appears when running the activation script you may be missing some 32-bit compatibility libraries.
In order for the activation script to work on a 64-bit Linux system, you may need to install 32-bit compatibility libraries. To do this, one or more of the following packages should be installed:
Note: You can determine if you have LSB (Linux Standard Base) installed on you machine by attempting to print the distribution information:
To install a package, you will need to execute a distribution-specific command at a Terminal Window with %package% replaced by the package name. Note that only Red Hat, SUSE, and Ubuntu are officially supported, but the other distributions listed below may still work:
Fedora, Red Hat, CentOS, SUSE
sudo yum install %package%
sudo dnf install %package%
Red Hat may require redhat-lsb.
SUSE likely needs lsb.
sudo apt-get install %package%
sudo dpkg -i %package%
pacman -S %package%
Note: Arch Linux likely needs ld-lsb. See here for further information.
In some cases on Arch Linux you may encounter an error saying that the Kernel Connection hasn't been established if Maple isn't activated.
