Compilation of Paraview for having all the readers

Dear Support,

I am compiling Paraview and I need to add some readers to open my simulation files. Normally I have these readers available with the non-compiled version of Paraview so I am trying to get them in the compiled version. I am using the following compilation configuration:

Compilation configuration

cmake \
-GNinja \
-DPARAVIEW_USE_PYTHON=ON \
-DPARAVIEW_USE_MPI=ON \
-DVTK_SMP_IMPLEMENTATION_TYPE=TBB \
-BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON \
PARAVIEW_USE_VISITBRIDGE \
Boost_INCLUDE_DIR \
PARAVIEW_ENABLE_VISIT_BRIDGE \
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ./paraview

Compilation command


ninja

However I am having the following output when compiling:

Which options should be added in order to have the readers (specially VisIt readers)?

Thank you in advance!

The option is not well formated. This should be
-DPARAVIEW_ENABLE_VISITBRIDGE=ON

To enable more readers, you should know wich one you want :slight_smile: Usually, they are disable because they depends on an external dependency.

Also, this is not a valid syntax for a cmake call. Mostly, cmake arguments are on the format
-D<ARG_NAME>=<VALUE>

Great! It worked! Thanks! I leave here the compilation config if someone needs it:

cmake \
-GNinja \
-DPARAVIEW_USE_PYTHON=ON \
-DPARAVIEW_USE_MPI=ON \
-DVTK_SMP_IMPLEMENTATION_TYPE=TBB \
-DPARAVIEW_ENABLE_VISITBRIDGE=ON \
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ./paraview

Now I have to compile Paraview with OSMesa which it seems quite problematic
