Converting MacOS houdini paths to Linux

Recommended Posts


Trying to get ytini running on Linux(Ubuntu)


I need to convert the following 2 scripts so they work on Linux instead of Mac OS.

The first is an addition to .bash_profile

alias houdini_setup='dirold=$(pwd); cd /Applications/Houdini/Houdini16.0.557/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/16.0.557/Resources; source houdini_setup; cd $dirold' 

The 2nd is  an alias to run Houdini from the command line with "houdini_run":


alias houdini_run='pathold=$PATH; PATH=/Users/jillnaiman1/yt-conda/bin:/Users/jillnaiman1/yt-conda/sbin:/Applications/Houdini/Houdini16.0.557/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/16.0.557/Resources/houdini:/Applications/Houdini/Houdini16.0.557/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/16.0.557/Resources/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin/; /Applications/Houdini/Houdini16.0.557/Houdini\ Apprentice\ 16.0.557.app/Contents/MacOS/happrentice; PATH=$pathold'


Can anyone help?


I've tried the following


alias houdini_run='pathold=$PATH; PATH=/home/jim/ytini/yt-conda/bin:/home/jim/ytini/yt-conda/sbin:/opt/hfs16.5.595/:/opt/hfs16.5.595/bin; /opt/hfs16.5.595/bin/hindie-bin; PATH=$pathold

and houdini launches but I get a lot of grep not found errors!
