  1. Hi, I am using houdini 19 on linux(centos) and I keep getting an error on the filecache node whenever I try to use the "save to Disk in Background" method. The entire topnet dots just red out and shows the two warnings below in node info. The "save to disk" option works fine though. Warning Unable to read file "/home/user/Desktop/filecaeTest/geo/FIleTEst.rotBox/v1/FIleTEst.rotBox_v1.0001.bgeo.sc". Warning GeometryIO[hjson]: Unable to open file '/home/user/Desktop/filecaeTest/geo/FIleTEst.rotBox/v1/FIleTEst.rotBox_v1.0001.bgeo.sc' GeometryIO[hclassic]: Unable to open file '/home/user/Desktop/filecaeTest/geo/FIleTEst.rotBox/v1/FIleTEst.rotBox_v1.0001.bgeo.sc' Also I tested saving to background in windows and it works fine. Not sure why it is does not work on linux. Am I missing anything or any additional steps on linux required?

  4. Hi, I have been struggling with this for the past 2 days. I need help in returning the name of the selected item in an ordered menu. What I am trying to achieve is to dynamically populate the ordered menu with the list of projects via menu scrip (python) import os path="k:/Projects/" dirList = os.listdir(path) dirs = [] for dirName in dirList: fullPath = os.path.normpath(os.path.join(path, dirName)) if os.path.isdir(fullPath): #dirs += [fullPath, dirName] dirs += [dirName, dirName] return dirs This code scans for folders in directory(k:/Projects/) and lists them in the menu. All works fine till here. Now I need to return the name value of the selected menu item from another parameter. So I have tried this listItemName = hou.pwd().parm("parmList_Projects").eval() and this listItemName = hou.pwd().parm("parmList_Projects").evalAsString() but it returns only integer values from (0,1,2,...) How can I get the name or label value ?
