Hi, after install vtk's python bindings dependencies (openmpi fmt jsoncpp glew ospray openxr openvr ffmpeg hdf5-openmpi postgresql-libs netcdf pdal mariadb-libs liblas cgns adios2 libharu gl2ps verdict), I have the following message error

python-matplotlib is a dependency according to

python-trame (I'm not sure if it works now, but I'm working to make it usable in the next versions) will become a new optional dependency (see changelog).

Edited: Since now, python-trame is fixed. Working fine with pyvista 0.40.0 or later.

I got this error when I try to install pyvista/python-scooby:error in scooby setup command: 'python_requires' must be a string containing valid version specifiers; Invalid specifier: '>=3.7.*'. Did I make something mistake?

Replying ~7 months later, since that this issue is closed, now paraview and vtk can coexist in the system. In other hand, the package python-cplot that I maintain use python-pyvista for check() function. Pictures: 1, 2, 3, 4. As we see, the test are not passing due to some missing VTK modules that offer vtk and not paraview. But using this custom PKGBUILD python-pyvista-noparaview the tests are passing. Pictures: 5, 6.

thanks for the solution. The underlying problem is that ParaView depends on VTK but cannot be build with the official VTK release. Its included VTK conflicts with the stand-alone VTK.

Since I use both, VTK (in Python) and ParaView, I only install ParaView. This normally works, but there are differences in enabled features (VTK from ParaView has normally more features enabled than the stand-alone version) and version (currently 9.0 for ParaViev 5.9 vs. 9.1 for stand-alone).

ParaView 5.9 is flagged out of date, I hope that after the update to 5.10 pyvista works again with ParaView VTK. If it is not a version issue but related to missing features, we have to look for another option.

I found a solution for pyvista-0.33 to work on manjaro: remove paraview dependence, build with vtk, and install fmt
