@xantares : most ParaView use it as Gui, that is true, and that's why the main paraview package should be aimed at the main userbase in my opinion. It is @eolianoe package, so that's his decision anyway.

@GloW why rebuilding paraview if it's available in the packages? plus it takes forever to build. I guess you guys at paraview are not used to the fact that we use it as a lib rather than a gui app.

@eolianoe : Sure you can (considering VTK_NO_PYTHON_THREAD is OFF), it will not disable any feature, but it does have an overhead for each python call.

@GloW: thanks for the explanation, if it does not disable any feature, it can be easily enable in the PKGUILD.
Yeah, an expert will build its own version but I'm trying to have most of the option enabled.

@eolianoe @xantares :
-DVTK_PYTHON_FULL_THREADSAFE=ON is a very specific option meant to allow usage of external python interpreter within a ParaView based application.

Anyone willing to build their own ParaView based application would build ParaView themselves anyway, and not use the aur package. So no reason to activate it imo.

source : Am the developper of this option :) .

@xantares: could you explain the benefits of the full_threadsafe option? For the install directory, I'm more in favour of following the default set by upstream.

could you add:

so to avoid to have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH

@antran: just rebuild it and paraview will find the right libraries

Hello everyone,

I installed the latest version of paraview on my laptop but I cannot open it. I got the following errors on Konsole

/usr/lib/paraview-5.3/paraview: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance.
