Submitter installation, linux fedora 34, houdini 18.5.532

Following manual installation guide, as submitter installer NEVER worked for my on any Linux distribution. But this time even the manual isn’t working.
Getting this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/cgoven/Thinkbox/Deadline10/submitters/HoudiniSubmitter/”, line 14, in
path = CallDeadlineCommand([ “-GetRepositoryPath”, “submission/Houdini/Main” ]).strip()

File “/opt/hfs18.5.532/python/lib/python2.7/”, line 1047, in _execute_child
raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Any ideas please?

Did you fix it Mirko ? Maybe the Deadline10/bin is not properly declared in your env ?

Nope never oworked using installers. I still have to install manualy for Houdini.


Can you share the error log that Houdini throws. Also what version of Houdini and Deadline are you using?

There is no error log, install seems to finishes fine but there is no submit to deadline menu and also submitter folder in home folder of user /Thinkbox/Deadline10 is never created. Could be a problem becase it has to use sudo to tun installer and it doesn’t create submitter folder at correct location?

Anyway installer finishes but thre is no submitter folder and no menu in houdini.
