HowTo / Notes

How to install

What works

Install of content packs from DAZ Install Manager(DIM), full display/use/render(minor testing to confirm, didn't go indepth).

What does not

Postgres won't run(trying to run as administrator, but Postgres won't allow that vulnerability).  Does not seem to be a direct workaround within the provided Postgres instance.
Can not install .exe products from DIM.  Indicates "Install Failed!" when attempted in DIM.


Install your own version of Postgres, then use the instructions found at (also posted below in comments).  Suggest doing this before installing any other packages, as that seems to cause issue with DAZ not being able to find all content.
To install .exe products, must download them directly from the site for each product, then run the installer separately.  This includes DAZ Studio, the Postgres CMS, and any lessons(other items I'm sure).  

What was not tested

I only did preliminary tests, did not go indepth as I'm only beginning in this.  But ran through some lesson material and performed a render, and everything worked as expected.

Additional Comments

Instructions from linked site below for setup of CMS database.  Be careful to note in the cmscfg.json, the second parameter, the key is different from the key in the file.

1. Install PostgreSQL

sudo apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib
sudo apt-get install pgadmin3
Notes: pgadmin3 is optional.

2. Setup DAZ Studio Content DB

sudo -u postgres psql

 WITH OWNER = dzcms
 TABLESPACE = pg_default
\c Content

 SCHEMA public
 VERSION "1.0"; (Show what version you have installed. For Ubuntu 17.10 for exmaple it is 1.3 see:  /usr/share/postgresql/9.6/extension/citext--1.3.sql )

 SET search_path = dzcontent, public;

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

sudo -u postgres vi /etc/postgresql/9.6/main/pg_hba.conf (replace 9.6 with your version installed.)
Change "md5" to "trust" for both IPv4 and IPv6 local connections:
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all               trust
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all             all             ::1/128                 trust

4. Restart PostgreSQL

sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql restart

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

Create the file .wine/drive_c/users//Application Data/DAZ 3D/cms/cmscfg.json with the following contents:
  "Port" : 5432,
  "ConnectionURI" : "postgresql://dzcms@localhost:5432/Content"

6. Start DAZ Studio, the database Content should be populated after that.  You can check it by using psql command-line or pgadmin3 GUI.

Works great except dForce simulations
by James Baker on Friday October 12th 2018, 10:01
I have an nVidia 1070.

I managed to get iRay rendering working and I use it in Wine (Staging) for all of my work in DAZ Studio.

The only two issues I've found are the main view port won't update until you move the mouse over it. So if you change a position parameter in your model on the parameters tab, it won't update on the screen until you move your mouse over the main view port. I work around this fairly easily.

The bigger issue is that dForce simulations don't work as they say the video card does not support it. My guess is the Cuda function they are looking for hasn't been forwarded in wine like the ones required for iRay have been.

I'm sing Wine Staging 3.0.3 installed through apt on Ubuntu (16.04 or 18.04).
NVIDIA Iray is Ok

I have DazStudio on Linut mint 18.1 (ubuntu 16) and Wine 2.1.

NVIDIA Iray render working fine ;)
