Hum yes, that the kind of issue you get with AUR packages when rebuild land in Arch.

I’m still planning to move this (as well as cgns and ospray) in [community], but I’m still unsure of the way to go w.r.t. ISA. ospray requires at least SSE4, and an SSE4-enabled embree, but Arch is still SSE2 (a bit off topic, but something we might want to look at when i686 will be gone)… I might end up building a embree-sse4 package, but people should be advised to install embree-isa and ospray-isa to get the most of them.

I had a couple of warnings like

/usr/bin/ld: warning:, needed by /home/klinkovsky/build/builddir/paraview/src/build/lib/, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

in the rebuild, but they went away when I removed the build directory and compiled cgns as well as paraview from scratch.

Anyone else having trouble with hdf5 1.10.1? I tried rebuilding paraview, but that didn't change anything.

/usr/lib/paraview-5.4/paraview: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@tomracing: maybe you should rebuild ospray to fix the undefined references.

Package failed to build with the following errors after a few notifications of undefined items from libospray refering to some functions.
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
[4683/18298] Building CXX object VTK/Render...ringParallelLIC.dir/vtkPPixelTransfer.cxx.o
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
:: failed to build paraview package(s)

Any idea if it is the pkgbuild or the dependencies going wrong here?

Figured it out - had to use the "Cell Data to Point Data" filter first...

lahwaacz commented on 2017-07-12 13:22

When I open any dataset in paraview and click on the "Apply" button, the contour filter is still greyed out and unusable. What should I do to make it available? All tutorials start with something like "click on Filters/Common/Contour", but don't consider that it is not available.

here's what I had to do to fix this:

move paraview module into site-packages:
sudo mv /usr/lib/site-packages/paraview/ /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/

remove the vtk dir without binaries
sudo rm -r /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/paraview/vtk

move vtk files with binaries into paraview module:
sudo mv /usr/lib/paraview-5.4/site-packages/vtk /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/paraview

exactly, if the python module was installed correctly you wouldnt have to set PYTHONPATH, like any other archlinux python package.

lahwaacz commented on 2017-07-08 07:27

@xantares: There is nothing in /usr/lib/site-packages on my system. To let python see /usr/lib/paraview-5.4/site-packages/ you need to set PYTHONPATH accordingly:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/paraview-5.4/site-packages:/usr/lib/paraview-5.4/site-packages/vtk
