vtk-5.6.0-38.fc14.x86_64
python-2.7-8.fc14.1.x86_64

How reproducible:
Run the attached test1.py. This is a small test based on "ParaView Scripting with Python, august 2007".

Actual results:

Comment 1 Rolf Fokkens 2011-02-14 15:26:56 UTC
Apparently it's fixed in paraview 3.10. Updating the Fedora package seems to be the solution.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2011-02-14 17:13:37 UTC
I'm currently working on trying to get 3.10 into F15.  Once that is done I'll look into updating F14.

Comment 3 Rolf Fokkens 2011-06-20 19:28:33 UTC
Same situation for Fedora 15:
paraview-3.10.1-3.fc15.x86_64
vtk-5.6.1-5.fc15.x86_64
python-2.7.1-7.fc15.x86_64

How to cause the bug:
[rolf@home07 ~]$ pvpython test1.py 
vtkConeSource : [ ...........]
vtkShrinkFilter : [ ...........]
vtkConeSource : [ ...........]
vtkShrinkFilter : [ ...........]
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[rolf@home07 ~]$

I can reproduce.  I'll see what I can find.

Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2011-12-30 22:55:30 UTC
Upstream seems to think this is fixed.  But the workaround from http://paraview.org/Bug/view.php?id=10556 still works:

adding this line before the call to WriteImage:

GetActiveView().UseOffscreenRenderingForScreenshots = 0 

or in the test1.py:

view.UseOffscreenRenderingForScreenshots = 0
