How can I make Houdini to start with the Technical Desktop?

You need to modify your 123.cmd (or hescape.cmd) file.

Copy it to $HOME/houdini9.x/scripts/ and change the lines to load the Desktop you want.

Thanks, James.  I'm looking to automate the process though.  I'm developing some pipeline tools for a platform called ftrack, so I'd like the artist to just run Houdini and have a custom desktop loaded (without requiring them to go into the preferences on their own).  I'm not sure if there are new techniques for doing this though (I found some older ones that I'll give a shot).
