Hello i am new to linux.
I want to install Amd pro render plugin for houdini on my ubuntu distro.
The installation.txt file in the package cannot be understood by an artist like me.
Use the installer script **install.py**. From a terminal run:
And follow the instructions from the script
well so far so good?
But when i type python install.py i get:
Command 'python' not found, did you mean:
command 'python3' from deb python3
command 'python' from deb python-is-python3
And i am like you woot mate?
Then i hit python3 in the terminal and get
Python 3.8.2 (default, Apr 27 2020, 15:53:34)
[GCC 9.3.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
So i am confused. The system tells me he does not understand install.py. But i sure as hell have python installed?!
Further more i look in the installationguide.txt file.
Copy content of hdRpr*.tar.gz to houdini installation directory.
Default destination path looks like:
* **Windows** `C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 18.0.287`
* **Ubuntu** `/opt/hfs18.0`
* **macOS** `/Applications/Houdini/Current/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/Current`
Whell then, seems easy enough.
But then when i try to drag over the files, i dont have accses to do so?!
So then i type: sudo mv dsolib hfs18.0
The dsolib disapeares from my extracted place. Seems good i thought,
But when i look at the dsolib map in the opt/hfs18.0 folder, it has not been modified on this date?
And when i try to move the hfs18.0 to hfs18.0 it states mv: cannot move 'hfs18.0' to a subdirectory of itself, 'hfs18.0/hfs18.0'
I dont know guys, how was this planned to installed?
Some of you have installed it seems. How did you do it?!
I manage to install it by using this command, i think.
However, i have a new problem.
I need to insert the path for Radeon pro render in the houdini.env file.
The question i have is what the correct path is to be specified in the houdini.env file.
Could someone tell me what to type in the houdini.env file please!
I got help from github.
Apparently there's no houdini.env string to set for Radeon pro render.
It is pre-installed with the installer.
You can accses the rendernode within the new Lopnetwork.
Hopefully i have helped someone with this input.
