After installing Houdini, you may come across this error. This error appears in the Terminal; if you open it from the application launcher, you maybe be getting this error, but it does not show in any way.

munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer
Aborted (core dumped)

The solution to this error is to set the environment variable of LD_PRELOAD, as given below.

export LD_PRELOAD="/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/"Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

You can restart Houdini after setting the environment variables above.
