Paraview Missing Python Support
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When trying to open a python shell in Paraview (view > Python Shell), it reports "Python support not available!". The FreeCad workbench for openFoam (CFDoF) also doesn't work when clicking the paraview button because of missing python support.

I've tried installing paraview-devel but still get the same error message when trying to open a python shell in paraview. I have python 2 and 3 installed on my system. Is there anything else I need to install or does paraview need to be compiled with python support?

ParaView requires enabling Python support at build time, and I didn't enable it because I don't use it myself and it increases compilation time drastically. I've thought that I will enable it if someone asks for it :)

I'll take a look at it later.
