I am using paraview on a virtual macine (VM-ware). My problem is not a big issue, however it would be great if this problem could be fixed.
When I move my cursor on arbitrary filters (e.g. Clip, Rescale, Warp by Scalar,…) usually a small window pop-ups and shows some explanation what the correspondong filter actually does. In my case, the window pop-ups, but without the additional helping text, i.e. just an empty white window.
If necessary, I can attach a screenshot, but I guess my problem is well described.
Here some additional input about my current OpenGL settings:
OpenGL Vendor: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL Version: 2.1 Mesa 20.0.8
OpenGL Renderer: SVGA3D;build;RELEASE; LLVM;
I am not quite sure if this is actually a problem related to OpenGl/Missing drivers or if there is a simple setting inside paraview where I can activate the “helping texts”.
I attached a screenshot of what I am talking about. So for instance I move my cursor on the icon to change the background, then the little white rectangle pop-ups, but in my case it is not filled. (Usually the rectangle is filled with some text what the icon or filter does). I have this problem with all filters,…
I have seen that I use QT version 4.8.7. I guess this could be the problem, since it is recommended to use a higher version.
Is there a way to install paraview via “sudo apt install paraview” with the current QT-version? I have installed a newer version of QT manually. However reinstalling paraview in the described way doesn´t recognize my new version of QT, i.e. there is still version 4.8.7
Inside this folder I passed the cmake folder to cmake via -DQt6_DIR=… Is this correct?
By the way, the cmake error wants “Qt5 external dependency”, however I downloaded Qt6. Can this be a problem as well?
I am running paraview on a virtual machine (vmware workstation player 16). On my host operating system, which is windows10, my graphic card model is “NVIDIA GeForce Rtx 2080”, OpenGL version 4.6.
Do you know if the workstation player of vmware supports a higher version of OpenGl than version 2.1? I know that within the pro-version there is a setting to support higher versions but I didn´t find a similar setting for the player-version.
