Hi.

I have problem with plugin activation ( Linux Mint ).

This is the error:
The attempted operation failed.
Invalid node type name.

This error shows up when I use Octane from shelf.

I see on the forum that somebody has this error but in my case probably is something different than path. Probably ...
I'm not 100% sure.

Hi,

It seems that Houdini can't load the plugin. The problem can be related to several issues:

1) Do you know if Octane Standalone works fine on this system? If it works the problem is on the Houdini plugin side for sure.
2) Check the houdini.env file configuration. The HOUDINI_PATH variable plugin build should match the Houdini build that you are using. To be sure, you can attach your houdini.env file here to check it.
3) Can you please check if you get an error reported in the console while launching Houdini? Open a console and start Houdini from it to see if an error related to the plugin is reported. Perhaps a needed lib is missing. For example, I've found that several new Linux distributions don't have the needed freeglut lib installed by default.

Thanks,

Thanks I will check it.

This is my env file.

#
# Houdini Environment Settings
#
# The contents of this file are read into the environment
# at startup. They will override any existing entries in
# the environment.
#
# The syntax is one entry per line as follows:
# VAR = VALUE
#
# Values may be quoted
# VAR = "VALUE"
#
# Values may be empty
# VAR =
#

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1



HOUDINI_PATH = "/home/theuser/Applications/octaneHoudini/; /usr/redshift/redshift4houdini/16.5.268; &"
