Hi,

Since 18.5 the houdini_setup.sh file is gone. What's the recommended way to launch houdini on linux now? I'm specifically interested launching it from the command line, not the new launcher (due to terminal output).

Thanks

Where is the file located in that case? It's not in the same directory as before, at least not in my install.

It's right in the root of the install folder for me, at least on a Windows installation.

Hi
There Are Two way
Just command Like Ex:
/opt/hfs18.0.597/bin/houdinifx

Or You can make file HoudiniFX18.sh And run Houdini With Consol terminal

#!/bin/bash
gnome-terminal -e "bash -c /opt/hfs18.0.597/bin/houdinifx;bash"

#Launch Hodini Without Console
/opt/hfs18.0.597/bin/houdinifx

True you can run the bin directly, but the environment won't be configured correctly without sourcing the houdini setup file.

That you cannot find the files you have placed somewhere,Find and Locate commands are used to search for the files in the system
Try Command :
locate houdini
Using the Find command you can search based on file and folder name.
