Yesterday I installed paraview v5.3 using the binaries from the website on my Linux (ubuntu) OS. The steps followed are (they my influence on the final result):
Download the binaries from http://www.paraview.org. For me this results in: ParaView-5.3.0-Qt5-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit.tar.gz Extract and copy them: tar xzvf -C /opt/ParaView-5.3.0-Qt5-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit.tar.gz sudo emacs ~/.bashrc then insert the following line, save & close export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ParaView-5.3.0-Qt5-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit/bin/
Then I created a symbolic link:
sudo ln -s /opt/ParaView-5.3.0-Qt5-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit/bin/paraview /usr/bin/paraview sudo ln -s /opt/ParaView-5.3.0-Qt5-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit/lib/paraview-5.3/ /usr/lib/paraview-5.3
Before installing paraview from the binaries files I was using the version from Ubuntu repositories (paraview version 5.0 [I think]). Also I was using a python script which uses paraview to take some snapshoots and it worked really well. The problem is that now, when I want to use this python script, it reports this message:
"from paraview.simple import * ImportError: No module named paraview.simple"
I have made some searches on the Internet and I found a web page about this problem: https://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView/EnvironmentSetup I have copied and pasted those sentences on my .bashrc file, restarted the computer but it still does not work.
Could you please help me?
