Anyone able to compile the latest update (as of 10 May 2022)? My build is failing on plugins/core/IO/qE57IO/CMakeFiles/QE57_IO_PLUGIN.dir/src/E57Filter.cpp.o

@DrTph To fix and, add -DBUILD_tools=OFF to PCL's PKGBUILD and rebuild it, then rebuild cloudcompare. To fix, install cloudcompare-git.

Today I struggled a bit to get CloudCompare to load LAS files. This helped me:

CloudCompare -LOG_FILE /tmp/cclog.txt

That showed that was not found, so the PDAL plugin was not being loaded. was installed in /usr/local/bin which is not searched by default in Arch Linux. I don't know if this is the best place for those libraries or not. They are older and provided with CloudCompare, and thus might conflict with what community/pdal provides in /usr/lib/. Anyway, one fix for this is:

sudo bash -c 'echo /usr/local/lib > /etc/'

Is a fresh login needed to make that take effect? Also you can add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

At the same time I cleaned up a config warning about UTF8 by installing utf8cpp. It might be good to add this as a dependency.

I'm still getting a couple errors in that CloudCompare log: does not seem to be a valid plugin (Cannot load library /usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins/ (/usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins/ undefined symbol: cblas_sgemv)) does not seem to be a valid plugin (Cannot load library /usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins/ (/usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN11vtkPolyData16GetNumberOfPolysEv)) does not seem to be a valid plugin    (Cannot load library /usr/lib/cloudcompare/plugins/ (/usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN11vtkPolyData16GetNumberOfPolysEv))

This package does not build anymore since the upgrade to pcl 1.12.

-DOPTION_USE_GDAL:BOOL=ON is needed to build with gdal otherwise by default it will set OFF

+1 to add gdal option and dependency

Hi, I tried to export the rasterized data to a raster file but the option is grey out. I read the wiki and it says this function relies on GDAL. I have GDAL installed but couldn't export it, so I wonder if this package needs to be compiled with GDAL option? If yes then where should add the compilation parameter?

@bartus On I found tutorials. There the objects are processed with the plugin PoissonRecon (Poisson Surface Reconstruction):

When I tried to install the plugin, I saw that there are more plugins. It would be great to have all the plugins as a separate package.

I have tried this but I don't get far, because I don't understand the arch packaging yet...

bartus commented on 2020-11-02 08:06 (UTC)

@thilo-adk which plug-in be specific.

thilo-adk commented on 2020-10-31 12:29 (UTC)

Hello, is it possible to add the official plugins to this package? If not, is there an understandable instruction how to do this? Thanks.

The recent pcl version requires C++14. The package cannot build until I add -DCMAKE_CXX_STANDARD=14 to cmake options.

Package started installing into /usr/lib64, had to add the following cmake flag to make it install properly

There is no .desktop or other in this package so application is not present in menu. A kind of this =>

File : /usr/share/applications/cloudcompare.desktop
