When I run this script, it seems to install 2014? Do I need to uninstall my previous version of Maya for this to work properly?

I never got a notice of your message. Yes, you always need to uninstall the previous version in order to install a new one

How do you uninstall what was previously installed by Heith's script?

evamvid commented Nov 4, 2015

Also, I was having problems with activation with Heith's script -- it couldn't connect to the internet to activate and had problems with offline activation; does this solve that?

As the script converts the rpms to debs, most of it can be uninstall with apt-get or synaptic, look at the maya folder and run apt-get purge for each of the deb file names, to undo the cp and ln commands simply delete each file manually. The offline activation is taken from https://gist.github.com/MichaelLawton/ee27bf4a0f591bed19ac Could you be more specific in what is the error you are getting with the activation?
