Can't load Houdini Asset Nov. 13, 2018, 2:32 a.m.

Hi, We're doing some Houdini Engine testing, but have run into a showstopper. We simply can't load any .hda in Houdini Engine for maya. Here's the error message (the file path is an example as we can't reveal current projects):

// Error: Could not load OTL file: /home/shortcut/Desktop/houdini_asset.hda //

I would think it has something to do with these other error messages:

// Error: Failed to automatically start Houdini Engine server using named pipe. //
// Houdini Engine failed to initialize.

We're using Houdini Engine version 17.0.352 on Maya 2018 for Linux.

Best Regards, Asger Mortensen.
