You could try using the Logik Portal to install the Logik Matchboxes:


on that web page the link doesn’t work!\

Try it now

I believe the Matchbox installer just copies the shaders to /opt/Autodesk/presets//matchbox/shaders/LOGIK/ does it not?

You don’t even need root to copy there.

I just thought I should let people know it appears to be broken

If you start matchbox shaders being installed via the Logic Portal Python Script, use “/opt/Autodesk/presets/2023/matchbox/shaders” link to install. After allowing writing on protected folder all the shaders will be installed. We did it already on latest macOS Catalina and Flame 2023.

Why not just edit the location here in preferences.

Yeah the script just needs to be updated to call python3 instead of python

To fix it I created an alias so that “python” ran “python3” and then it worked.

Edit: Actually I remembered I tried that and I think it will work but I actually just changed the “#!/usr/bin/env python” to “#!/usr/bin/env python3” in Visual Studio Code and just ran it right within VSC and it worked perfect.

is there a solution for those who don’t speak Python?

as mentioned above, just edit the INSTALL.command file and change “#!/usr/bin/env python” to “#!/usr/bin/env python3”


Hello. Just started playing with 2023. Is there a “good” installer for the Login Matchbox set?

Have you tried using the install that you get with @MikeV 's portal?

Define “good”? What’s wrong with the logik-matchbook installer?

Doesn’t work. It’s looking for an old python folder or something. Same with time warp ml. Looking for a documents folder that can’t exist.

Linux or mac? . I’ve reinstalled my system recently and matchbox and twml installer worked perfectly. Rocky linux and 2023 now and centos 8.2 and 2022 before. Matchbox installer always worked in mac :man_shrugging:

Try editing the install script and change the first line that’s has “python” in it to “python3” see if that might work.

Haha, I just tried this in 2023.2 on Mac and now i have a completely empty Matchbox bin in Batch so, uh…

Kids maybe don’t try this one at home!
