Paraview bugfix-update for 12.04 Precise

Asked by Anton Gladky


there are a couple of annoying bugs in paraview, which ships with
Precise 12.04 (possibly 12.10 is affected as well). It would be good
to have them fixed.

I have prepared a debdiff, which fixes a crash during loading of
STL-ascii files and removes a lot of warning messages during startup (LP: #995949).
Please, consider uploading these changes.

Patch is attached. Binaries can also be reviewed on PPA [1] ( paraview - 3.14.1-2precise1).

Thank you,

If somebody willing to fix ParaView in 12.04, the package is
available here [1]. I have a very low motivation to push the package
through the bureaucracy process, sorry.
