Lib issue - Conda - Ipyhton - 2,7

Hi everyone,

I have installed Paraview using a conda environment, where I installed Python 2.7.10, which is the only compatible version with Paraview, as far as I know. The installation went well and now I have Paraview installed in my conda environment. However, when I tried to run:

**ParaView.simple import ***

I get the following message:

ImportError: dlopen(//anaconda3/envs/py2_7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vtkmodules/, 2): Library not loaded: @rpath/libdouble-conversion.3.dylib
** Referenced from: //anaconda3/envs/py2_7/lib/libvtkIOCore-pv5.7.1.dylib**

Has anyone experienced something similar or have any approach to solve this error?

Thank you in advance for your support.

It is likely how paraview was built by the conda recipe. I suggest to create an issue / ask the conda recipe maintainers.


I fixed the issue, I needed the update Paraview from the conda env with Python 2.7.10 and now it’s working well.

In a different note: Do you mind telling how to use the * paraview.simple. EnSightReader ( *input , *params ) ?

I have my .case file but I was not able to read it in Python.

Thank you,

Alfonso, you should as ask this question in a different topic with the right descriptive title so that people know it was not answered.
