If you facing some problem installing Maya and 3ds max Plugin for Bullet Rigid Body Dynamics to your linux box then follow this steps

1 : download source from here

2 : extract to some location ie : /usr/tmp/bullet/dynamica-src
3 : if you dont have cmake then install cmake from software center (ubuntu) or yum (redhat)
4 : then cd to /usr/tmp/bullet/dynamica-src
5 : run “cmake CMakeLists.txt”
6 : then run “make all”

if you facing GL error then download this zip file and copy all files /usr/inclue/GL

7 : now run again “make clean” and “make all”

if you facing now with some openGL32 lib error install this libs

8 : apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev

now its should be fine with making the libs after that copy the mel scripts to usr maya folder and open Maya then locate the plug-in in inside the /usr/tmp/bullet/dynamica-src/Extras/MayaPlugin/
