I have successfully set-up paraview-lite in a ubuntu machine. I start the server with:
pvpython ./server/pvw-lite.py --data ~/3d_samples --port 8082
how can I do the same without using the python wrapper?
how can I make paraview-lite work with the server ~/paraview/bin/pvserver?
pvpython will always be a client from the point of view of ParaView and therefore, pvpython can connect to a pvserver if you want. You can see how a registered protocol in visualizer is allowing you to connect to a remote pvserver using some command line argument.
But if your goal is to run pvw-lite.py in parallel, you just need to use pvbatch with mpi instead.
