I've updated this for Houdini 16 but because PySide2 currently doesn't install, I have a hacky setup where I've downloaded and unpacked python2-pyqt5, pyqt5-common, and python2-sip from here ( I've then edited /opt/houdini/houdini/python2.7libs/hutil/ line 318 from "if preferred:" to "if False:" to get houdini to try using PyQt5 instead of just PySide2. Finally I run houdini with `PYTHONPATH=</path/to/unpacked/pyqt/stuff>/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ /opt/houdini/bin/houdini`.

Change the line install=('houdini.install') by install='houdini.install' in PKGBUILD

AWhetter commented on 2015-05-29 09:57

Should be fixed now?

ParadoxSpiral commented on 2015-05-29 06:21

The python dependencies should be fixed, notify me if I missed some.

If needs be, for now you can get makepkg build to not build hqueue-server using eg: makepkg --pkg houdini houdini-maya-engine

mills.sean commented on 2015-04-25 13:59

after removing 'file://' from the PKGBLD, everything installs fine now except for hqueue server, as some of its python dependencies fail upon install (I know these are not your packages)

AWhetter commented on 2015-04-20 14:34

I've just uploaded a fix. I don't have time to test if hqueue server is working right now but I'll look at it some time soon.
