Issue with representation type selection with Qt6 on Arch Linux


On Arch Linux, building ParaView with Qt6, I have an issue with a the representation mode selection:

  • When right-clicking on a mesh ans selecting the representation type with th checkbox selection, everything is fine.
  • When using the combo box (either on the toolbar or in the properties tab), nothing changes (the default remains at “Surface”).

The latest version I compiled (a few days ago) is:

I have the same behavior with the NVIDIA driver (under optirun)

Other combo-box based settings seem to work fine

Has anybody observed a similar issue ? I do not observe it when building against Qt5.

Best regards,

Hi everyone,
I can confirm this issue. I’m also building PV with Qt6 on Arch and the representation combo-box is not working. The right-click menu in the viewport works. Btw. thanks for that tipp! I didn’t even know this context menu existed xD.
