The VTK install rule (`make install` under Unix) will usually do the
right thing in installing everything. Make sure that the
`CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX` variable is set appropriately.
`CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX` variable is set appropriately. There are two
ways to customize python module installation. First, one may modify
the VTK_PYTHON_SETUP_ARGS CMake cache variable to set the options
passed to the setup.py script. The default value for this variable
provides reasonable behavior for packagers. Second, one may
define VTK_INSTALL_NO_PYTHON:BOOL=ON in the CMake cache which will
disable the automatic execution of setup.py as part of the install
process. Then one may run ``python setup.py install`` manually
with the desired options.
