Setup DAZ on Linux

DAZ Studio auf einem Linux System zum Laufen bringen.

DAZ Studio Matrix PostgreSQL install setup on Linux

Just had set up a fresh system because Windows 10 went on my nerves but realized soon after that DAZ Studio won’t run that simple on a Ubuntu alike variant of Linux. So I found this on the DAZ forums:

can somebody do a step guide for what to do now that we are using Postgres 12? it would help if we could get a central Guide for keeping it running. thanks and have a good day!

I still use the guide from amyaimei on deviantart with a few modifications

I am running DS 4.15.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04 with Wine-Staging 6.4, versions 6.5. and the new 6.6 will break dforce simulation, GPU rendering still doesn’t work on the newer versions. I use Blender for rendering with the Diffeomorphic plugin.

This is how it works for me, it might not work for you.

0. Use winetricks to get the followings: vcrun2005, vcrun2010, d3dx9
I never do these steps, as they get autoinstalled if needed. My first step is to install DS via DIM.

1. Install PostgreSQL

sudo apt-get install postgresql-12

2. Setup DAZ Studio Content DB.

sudo -u postgres psql
CREATE ROLE dzcms LOGIN
SUPERUSER INHERIT CREATEDB CREATEROLE REPLICATION;
CREATE DATABASE "Content"
WITH OWNER = dzcms
ENCODING = 'UTF8'
TABLESPACE = pg_default
CONNECTION LIMIT = -1;
\c Content
CREATE EXTENSION citext
SCHEMA public
VERSION "1.4";
ALTER ROLE dzcms
SET search_path = dzcontent, public;
exit

3. Modify PostgreSQL configuration to allow dzcms logon without password.

sudo gedit /etc/postgresql/12/main/pg_hba.conf 

Change «md5» to «trust» for both IPv4 and IPv6 local connections:

# IPv4 local connections:

host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            trust

# IPv6 local connections:

host    all             all             ::1/128                 trust

4. Restart PostgreSQL.

sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql restart

5. Install DAZ Studio 4.9 by using wine as «Windows XP.»  It is VERY IMPORTANT, I spent days to figure out why the CMS is not working just because I installed it by using wine as «Windows 7.»

AFAIK it doesn`t matter, I always install DS before Postgres using wine as Windows 7


6. Setup DAZ Studio CMS connection before starting DAZ Studio.

Create the file .wine/drive_c/users/<your_linux_user_name>/Application Data/DAZ 3D/cms/cmscfg.json with the following contents:
{
  «Port» : 5432,
  «ConnectionURI» : «postgresql://dzcms@localhost:5432/Content»
}

7. Start DAZ Studio, the database Content should be populated after that.  


From the forums to the original tutorial from amyaimei:

Hope it works!
