Paraview-5.8.1 not working on MacOSX BigSur

Hello All: I am unable to run ParaView-5.8.1 (downloaded from https://www.paraview.org/download/) on my MacBookPro which is running the BigSur OS. Symptom: when I launch the application, the “wheel of death” keeps spinning forever. Unfortunately, I need to use 5.8.1 since I have to use this version of the ParaView client to be able to connect to the 5.8.1 pvserver on a computer at a large computing facility. So, I am afraid I will not be able to use 5.9.x. Do you, perhaps, have a more recent 5.8.1 build that I can try, which may resolve the problem I am facing? Any suggestions, please?

Thanks,
Fluid Mechanic

Welcome to the ParaView community, Ramesh!

Is it an M-1 chip? This is still not supported. https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/issues/20352

Alternatively, try reinstalling, as listed here: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/paraview/-/issues/20332

Hi Fluid Mechanic,

When did you download 5.8.1? Just recently, or a while ago? If it was a while ago, please download it and install it again as there was a minor change to how we sign the packages that may affect your use of it.

Thanks, @wasott. It’s a Intel i7 based MacBook Pro.

Hello Cory, I downloaded 5.8.1 a few minutes ago and noticed the spinning wheel when I clicked on the installed application. I have tried running the client that was installed after installing the 5.8.1 .dmg and, later, the .pkg downloads. No success with both.

Do you have any external volumes mounted on the system that your user account may not have permission to access by chance?

No, there are no external volumes.

If you force quit ParaView 5.8.1, does macOS pop up a dialog asking if you want to report a problem? If so, click yes and copy and paste the error report here, please.

Otherwise, I don’t know what the issue could be. I know people have been able to run on BigSur on Intel hardware without problems in some instances, so there is probably something different about your system.

Here is an abbreviated error report (I cannot post the whole text since I cannot exceed 32000 characters)

Just a quick note: On my MacBook Pro, running Big Sur (11.2.2), I am not able to run 5.9.0 either. When I start 5.9.0 and read in a file, it does nothing (no spinning wheel, no heating up of the laptop, …) So, I am unable to get either 5.8.1 or 5.9.0 to work on my laptop.

We’re seeing this same problem, too.

Have you found any solution. I do have same problem?
