I've updated this for Houdini 16 but because PySide2 currently doesn't install, I have a hacky setup where I've downloaded and unpacked python2-pyqt5, pyqt5-common, and python2-sip from here (https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/2016/06/15/extra/os/x86_64/). I've then edited /opt/houdini/houdini/python2.7libs/hutil/Qt.py line 318 from "if preferred:" to "if False:" to get houdini to try using PyQt5 instead of just PySide2. Finally I run houdini with `PYTHONPATH=</path/to/unpacked/pyqt/stuff>/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ /opt/houdini/bin/houdini`.

I had the same problem with the PyQt5 hack. I ended up installing houdini manually using the official install script contained in the tar. Everything is working now. Looking at the script it seems that houdini brings its own python2 and pyside2. Maybe the PKGBUILD should just call the official install script.

Hi, I tried your hack, but when placing a FLIP fluid container, houdini segfaults. Any idea why that might be? Note: I'm using 16.0, not 16.5.
