I've just built ParaView 3.3 after enabling Python in the CMakeLists.txt file. It seemed to build fine, but when I attempt to run the python shell, it brings up the shell with this message:
>>> from paraview import servermanager
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
File "/home/michael/OLDOF/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Icc/Ut ilities/VTKPythonWrapping/paraview/servermanager.py", line 43, in ?

from libvtkCommonPython import *
ImportError: No module named libvtkCommonPython
I've looked around and the libvtkCommonPython.so file exists in both the /ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Icc/bin directory and the /ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Icc/lib directory. I've updated my LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the location of these libraries, but this has failed to solve the problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

No. Python wants to find the .so's as modules (and for those it looks in PYTHONPATH). So in ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/etc/apps/paraview3/bashrc after the lines that set the PYTHONPATH to the .py-files:
if [ "$PYTHONPATH" ]; then
add this line
restart the shell and everything should be fine (it was for me). If you're using tcsh something similar should be done.
If it works for you, could you please file a report in the Bugs-section so that it will be fixed in the next Release?
