Build ParaViewGuide
The ParaView Guide Community Edition is a LaTeX document used to generate a final .pdf file. The Catalyst User's Guide can be built at the same time, in the same way.
## Prerequisites
You need CMake, LaTeX, and ImageMagick.
### CMake
* See the [ParaView docs][] for obtaining CMake.
### Windows
* To get LaTex, install [MikTeX][]
- First, run the MiKTex Update (Admin). You may have to run twice if it updates the updater binary.
- MikTex Package Manager (admin), search and install packages:
> adjustbox, bclogo, catoptions, cite, collectbox, colortbl, enumitem, etoolbox, fancyhdr, floatflt, fncychap, frankenstein, ifoddpage, l3kernel, l3packages, listings, mdframed, mptopdf, ms, paralist, pgf, setspace, subfigure, symbol, url, wrapfig, xcolor, xstring
+ Unfortunately MikTeX automatic install during build doesn't seem to work. If you discover a missing package during build, please add it to this list.
+ [mpm][] command line looks like a good option to do this all at once.
* Install [ImageMagick][], use the recommended download (Q16 precision is fine)
- In the installer, choose 'Install legacy utilities (convert)'
### Linux (Ubuntu)
* To get LaTeX, install a TeXLive package. I tried this, on Ubuntu:
`sudo apt install texlive-latex-base`
** This doesn't include the extra packages, same as those missing on Windows. ToDo: how to install missing packages.
* ImageMagick seems to be installed by default on Ubuntu.
## Run Cmake
If you created a ParaViewGuide/src and ParaViewGuide/build directory, and you cloned the repository into src, then:
* `cd build`
* `cmake-gui ../src` or `ccmake ../src`
- click 'configure'
- You may change whether to build the ParaView Guide and/or the Catalyst User's Guide.
- Generator: I chose the 'MSYS makefiles' generator, after I added MinGW binaries to the path in my Git Bash shell.
- Click 'Advanced'. MIKTEX_BINARY_PATH should be set to something like "C:/Program Files (x86)/MiKTeX 2.9/miktex/bin/" to allow all the LaTeX binaries to be found.
- You may have to manually set the IMAGEMAGICK_CONVERT path, to something like "C:/Program Files/ImageMagick-7.0.3-Q16/convert.exe", if it complains about finding Windows convert.exe instead.
## Build
* `make`
- If any packages are missing, MiKTex will offer to fetch them. However, this failed for me. Copy the package name from the missing .sty dialong, and then in the main MiKTex Package Manager, search for the package name and install it. Build again.
- You will have to build at least twice, so that references can be updated correctly. You will see many warnings during the build process.
