I'm not getting the 8th line:

@lahwaacz @juliohm
Added the Exec key to the desktop file. Should work now.

lahwaacz commented on 2016-05-09 15:34

See the specification:

"The Exec key is required if DBusActivatable is not set to true."

So the paraview.desktop does not comply to the standard.

juliohm commented on 2016-05-09 14:59

Everything is perfect, except the desktop file created under /usr/share/applications/paraview.desktop. When I try to open paraview from the Gnome menu it is not found with the message "Desktop file didn't specify Exec field". What is the exact difference between Exec and TryExec? Why to opt for the latter?

Build fails with recent version 6 of GCC. I am newbie in pushing updated .SRCINFO and modified PKGBUILD's. But patch and sha1sum is created and added to it. Since I failed to push it please find the patch concatenated to this comment. (Luckily, since I missed to have correct path strings towards VTK/CMake in my patch...newbie behaviour, sorry!)

Have fun, nice weekend. Regards wilmbas

The paraview.desktop and paraview.png files can be deleted as the sources already provide those files and they are installed by `make install`.

Seem that it is not starting with the last hdf5 package update. I cannot recompile the package either.

MartinDiehl commented on 2016-04-11 20:06

Using the hdf5-fortran-openmpi package, I get an error (see below) when opening XDMF files (which are opening an HDF5 files). I'm not really sure if this would need to be fixed by the paraview developers or in the Arch package, so please feel free to delete this hint if it's inappropriate.

Warning! ***HDF5 library version mismatched error***
The HDF5 header files used to compile this application do not match
the version used by the HDF5 library to which this application is linked.
Data corruption or segmentation faults may occur if the application continues.
This can happen when an application was compiled by one version of HDF5 but
linked with a different version of static or shared HDF5 library.
You should recompile the application or check your shared library related
settings such as 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH'.
'HDF5_DISABLE_VERSION_CHECK' environment variable is set to 1, application will
continue at your own risk.
Headers are 1.8.15, library is 1.8.16

Paraview can also be build against ffmpeg 3.0 using the patch from this bugreport [1]

If you want the export into pdf (or other vector format) remove the line `-DVTK_RENDERING_BACKEND:STRING=OpenGL2` (see mailing-list discussion [2])
