[solved]error when compiling ParaView 3.8.0 on ubuntu10.04
I tried to compile paraview 3.8 on ubuntu10.04, but got the following error


make[2]: *** [Documentation/paraview.qch] error 127
make[1]: *** [Documentation/CMakeFiles/ParaViewOnlineHelp.dir/all] error 2
make: *** [all] error 2

It is exactly same with the problem described in this post

In the post, libqt4-devel-doc and libQtWebKit-devel is suggested to install.

But I can't find such packages in ubuntu10.04. By the way, I am using a 64bit version.

Greetings lainme and welcome to the forum!

The packages you are missing in Ubuntu 10.04 are likely these:

libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools
Additionally you might need these too:

libpng12-dev libxt-dev libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libglib2.0-dev freeglut3-dev

For building documentation, see also post #9.

Best regards,

thanks for your reply. I have checked that post and installed all the packages mentioned. But it doesn't work.

I also searched the paraview mailing list, and someone said the compiling will always fall on a 64bit system.

solved the problem. I compiled it under a directory containing Chinese characters, that's where the error came from.
