Simul8r Project [WIP] March 15, 2023, 5:42 p.m.

Hi all!

So I've been working recently on a personal project that's a web service where you can... do simulations! Yes, simulations in the browser.

And you might ask: Ok, so what it has to do with Houdini? Well currently I'm using Houdini as an engine in the backend for the service.

The app supports only FLIP simulations, but I will keep adding other solvers before the app goes live - hopefuly somewhere around summer.

Will it scale? []

@SreckoM - I mean that I used Ubuntu settings tools for that. Ok when I get home will try disabling Secure boot in bios too.

@twod - will check that later tonight and will post you what I have

I am using it on 18.04 with Nvidia without problems. I am almost 100% sure you did not install these drivers correctly. What does it says in About section?

Actually I reinstalled new system as I might have done few things not the way I should. Because last time I upg the nvidia drivers in terminal. This time I did that in settings manually. And I managed to run Houdini.

However still sometimes I get some viewport glitches, and aftet that I get a crash. But this time at least there was a backup file created.

Right now I have just:
1) Installed Ubuntu
2) Did updates manually
3) Updated NVIDIA drivers manually. However still in About section the system shows me gpu type NV60 (or sth like that, im at work now) but I have GTX1060.

And thats it for now. Ive read that you need gcc too for houdini. Not sure what that is actually, but know how to install it from terminal.

Im rather new to Linux, always worked on Win.
