Summary0002289: Wrong CMAKE option for ParaView OpenGL2 backend in etc/tools/ParaViewFunctions
DescriptionThe new OpenGL2 rendering backend is not compiled in, because the name of the CMAKE option in file etc/tools/ParaViewFunctions is wrong. It says in
that the CMAKE option to set is called "VTK_RENDERING_BACKEND", however in ParaViewFunctions it is called "VTK_RENDERING_BACKEND_DEFAULT" and it is not picked up. The following changes fixes the problem:


# Choose the new rendering engine


# Choose the new rendering engine

After recompiling, the new rendering engine is used (ie Legacy rendering mode is no longer displayed).

Steps To ReproduceCompiling ParaView 5.x with makeParaView
TagsNo tags attached.

I can't believe I missed that!
Weirder still is that I wrote about a workaround on how to use OpenGL instead (seen here ), because inside a virtual machine it was choosing OpenGL2 by default and it was giving me the following:

  Error message: "GL version 2.1 with the gpu_shader4 extension is not supported by your graphics driver"

So in my case it had selected the OpenGL v2 by default!

By the way, a workaround until this is fixed in the ThirdParty folder is to use this as an option for the "makeParaView" script, for example:
