Hi, I'm trying to install the octane demo version for houdini. After editing the env file a pop up saying "No Qt binding were found" appears constantly. How can I solve this?

Hi,

This problem sounds to me like a mistake in the houdini.env variables. Can you please attach this file to check it here? The Octane plugin doesn't use Qt at all, so something else could be broken due to a wrong houdini.env configuration.

Thanks,

You have an extra " character in the PATH variable, just before the $PATH string. If you remove it, probably the plugin should work ... but, why are you installing the plugin in your $HOME folder? I'm not sure if this is a good idea (and in this case, probably you don't even need to add these variables to the houdini.env file, becasue the $HOME folder is already available by default for Houdini)

Thanks,
-Juanjo

I'm so dumb... Thanks a lot juanjgon. It works now.
why are you installing the plugin in your $HOME folder?
For no particular reason. I followed a tutorial from youtube and the guy installed it there. Where would you recommend me to install it instead?

Well, as you can see the plugin works inside the $HOME folder, but the problem can be that later if you want to update or remove it, you could also remove other Houdini files by mistake, breaking your configs.

You can put the plugin folder at any place in your HD, but remember to update the houdini.env file paths.

Thanks,
