So you can modify the PKGBUILD of paraview to add -DPARAVIEW_USE_VTKM=OFF and upload it to AUR as paraview-openfoam.

@petronny, no I mean it applies for any ParaView packages. Until I install openFoam, any of those ParaView packages work. After installing OPenFOam, they stop working. So, I just did this (I have both OpenFOAM-v2012 & OpenFOAM8 installed installed in my Arch machine).

sudo pacman -R --nodeps --nodeps paraview

Then I build Paraview Version: 5.9.1-RC1-942-g7cfe71ad8e manually, after downloading the git. With only exception of adding the -DPARAVIEW_USE_VTKM=OFF in the cmake command (described here: ArchLinux ParaView build instruction).

@massisenergy You mean a package like paraview-openfoam?

You can upload it to AUR if you get it working.

Looks like there is some problem in the OpenFOAM-ParaView interface. Everytime I install this, ParaView stops working (I posted the details here: This started when ParaView was updated to 5.8.1, I believe. But I could test ParaView 5.9.1 RC1 to be working (but not 5.9.0) with manual building and installation. Installing this OpenFOAM package leads to crashing of both version of ParaView.

The issue might well be just the current AUR ParaView version, which is required by OpenFOAM as a dependency. Is it possible to modify the PKGBUILD so that a particular version of ParaView (manually installed by the user) can be used as dependency for this OpenFOAM package? This happens with openfoam-com version also.

Might it be possible to remove the line "conflicts=('openfoam-com')" from the PKGBUILD file? Otherwise it is impossible to install the ESI and Foundation version (openfoam-com and openfoam-org) at the same time.

@Volker_Weissmann, @petronny: ParaView now has a community package:

In openfoam.install, you link to This site is 404.

@petronny there is now an openfoam-selector package and you can add a .install to register/deregister the OpenFOAM installation, as described in this issue.
