I am new to ParaView, I am using ParaView 3.14.0. I want to create some scripts for batch processing, but I can't even open up the Python console window.

When I go to: Tools -> Python Shell the button is disabled.

When I try running ParaView from the terminal with a script (using --script) I get:
Python support not enabled. Cannot run python scripts.



Does anyone know how I can enable it?


Thanks.
James

Greetings JPW and welcome to the forum!

Depends on how you installed ParaView! The Python functionality is only available if ParaView is built with it.
I believe that the official binary installation provides this functionality out-of-the-box: http://www.paraview.org/

Best regards,
Bruno
