[SOLVED]How To Install the Linux Version? Dec. 14, 2017, 4:02 p.m.

I have muddled through the install and I have Houdini up and running now. And you were right, I was running the wrong file inside of the tar. I am still getting used to the way Linux presents files compared to Windows and OSX.

[SOLVED]How To Install the Linux Version? Dec. 13, 2017, 8:14 p.m.

I have installed Ubuntu 17.10.
I have downloaded houdini-16.5.268-linux_x86_64_gcc4.8.
When I double click the INSTALL file all I get is a text document.
Which tells me to run houdini.install.

In OSX and Windows I can double click on a file to run or launch it. This does not seem to be the case in Ubuntu.
How do I run the installer?

I think your problem might be that you need to Unpack the Alembic before you pass it on to VDB From Polygons which makes the volume you are referencing in the DOP network. If you middle click on the Alembic you will see that it is packed so there are no polygons until you unpack. Also you must unpack more than 1 iteration to actually drill down into the Alembic hierarchy to reach the stored polygons.
