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/libc_malloc_debug.so.0"

You can restart Houdini after setting the environment variables above.
