I gave it a whirl. Install is smooth! I have a few VTK gripes
1. On March 1st I sent you a mail on how I needed to reorganize the
site-packages/vtk_python directory along with a directory listing.
It does not look like this has been done for 1069. Basically
there are the following problems:
a. You have two copies of the vtk*Python.dll files, one in
vtk_python and one inside vtk_python/vtk. You really should
put all the dll's into the vtk_python dir and leave the
vtk_python/vtk directory with pure Python modules.
b. You don't need to build the Tcl libraries. You do need to
point VTK to the Tcl/Tk libraries in order to build the Tk
widgets used by Tkinter but you don't need to build the Tcl
bindings to get them built.
I also posted some of these comments on Jan 28th. See here
(specifically look at point 6):
2. It looks like you have not enabled GL2PS support for VTK. I'd
appreciate this very much. To get this option do the following:
when you run CMake, turn on the "show advanced values" and set
VTK_USE_GL2PS on. You can turn off the "show advanced values"
once you do this. Then re-configure and rebuild. This allows
users to save VTK scenes to vector PS/EPS/PDF files which is very
handy. I'd appreciate it very much if this feature could be
incorporated in the next intermediate release of Enthon. Then can
I cut a 1.5 MayaVi release with a binary that supports gl2ps.
