In this paper, we investigate the error correction of universal Gaussian transformations obtained in the process of continuous-variable quantum computations. We have tried to bring our theoretical studies closer to the actual picture in the experiment. When investigating the error correction procedure, we have considered that both the resource GKP state itself and the entanglement transformation are imperfect. In reality, the GKP state has a finite width associated with the finite degree of squeezing, and the entanglement transformation is performed with error. We have considered a hybrid scheme to implement the universal Gaussian transformations. In this scheme, the transformations are realized through computations on the cluster state, supplemented by linear optical operation. This scheme gives the smallest error in the implementation of universal Gaussian transformations. The use of such a scheme made it possible to reduce the oscillator squeezing threshold required for the implementing of fault-tolerant quantum computation schemes close to reality to -19.25 dB.
