@hottea: fixed, keep in mind this is only a temporary workaround for paraview/vtk conflict, until a proper solution is adopted upstream.

The desktop file is installed to /opt/paraview/share/applications/org.paraview.ParaView.desktop. This is not a proper place. GNOME could not find paraview. We should install it to /usr/share/applications. And the icon image should be installed to proper location too. We cannot simply install everything to /opt.

@bartus Thanks, that's a neat tool! Also, as of the latest compile, I am no longer getting the issue with the Python libraries as I mentioned a few posts back, and everything seems to be working well.

@robotdna: just use updpkgsums from pacman-contrib :)

@jancici I too got this error while upgrading. It is simply just an error with the checksums (out of date here), and you can generate new ones in the PKGBUILD yourself, using:

makepkg -g -f -p PKGBUILD >> integ

Then, take the keys generated in the file integ and replace the sha256sums in the PKGBUILD with it, and manually run makepkg -si. This successfully worked for me.

I am getting error while installing this package.

thank you for fix.

org.paraview.ParaView.desktop should be installed to /usr/share/applications, otherwise, GNOME or other DE could not find it.

@robotdna: is just an old version of python library, current ArchLinux version is the 3.8.

If you are on manjaro you can still find it:

$ pacman -Fs                                                                                                                               [130]
extra/python 3.7.4-2

Please just try to rebuil this package, and report if encounter an error - we could fix it from there.

Does anyone know how to fix this? The latest update broke this opt paraview for me:

/opt/paraview/lib/paraview: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All tips online suggest installing packages that don't exist in Arch. If I knew where this library was I'd symbolically link it but I can't find it.
