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`.

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)

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.

I'm able to get through most of the build, but once it get's to the hqueue-server section it fails because it cannot find
"/houdini/pkg/hqueue-server/opt/hqueue/scripts/hqserverd: No such file or directory"

prior to /houdini/ being my home directory where I'm doing the build.
There is a /houdini/pkg/hqueue-server/opt/hqueue-server/scripts/hqservered file however. Updating the PKGBUILD to reflect that seems to fix that, but then later in the hqueue-server build "/cp: target ‘/home/sean/houdini/pkg/hqueue-server/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/’ is not a directory"

I checked and this directory is never created.
Can you update this, or post a fix?

I've just adopted this package. I hope to get the PKGBUILD I pasted below tidied up and the package updated in the next few days.

Here's a PKGBUILD for

I extracted the LICENSE file out of the houdini.install file that's in the houdini tarball and substituted all \" for ".

can someone update this for 13?

The gcc version is the highest possible provided by SideFX. It currently is 4.4 for x86_64 and it is only 4.4 for i686. I will try to update the PKGBUILD.

Can you please update to 12.5?
Also how do you find out which gcc version to install?

dustykhan: the file houdini.install is in the source tarball, try to unarchive it again.

==> ERROR: install file ((houdini.install)) does not exist.

Can you please fix...?
