Make ParaView buildable with WSL on windows and document the prodecure
ParaView does not seem to build on WSL because of xmlpatterns not working.
Please make ParaView buildable on WSL and if it is already, document the procedure.
Initial bug report was as follows :
Paraview cmake error with the "AcceleratedAlgorithms_doc" dependency
Hi, I am trying to make a build of open source Paraview using the ubuntu bash terminal, my machine runs on Windows 10. I thought I had downloaded all of the required dependencies, as per this documentation: https://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView:Build_And_Install#Download_And_Install_CMake but at the "Build Paraview" part of the documentation, I run into this error once I get to the part of the cmake where the AcceleratedAlgorithms_doc is scanned:
CMake Error at /mnt/c/Users/mmmto/OneDrive/Documents/GitHub/ParaView/CMake/ParaViewClient.cmake:577 (message): Failed to convert servermanager XML: xmlpatterns: could not exec '/usr/lib/qt5/bin/xmlpatterns': No such file or directory
I know that xmlpatterns exists on my machine, but it exists in
/usr/lib, and not
Any help would be appreciated.
