Hi Cory and Ben,

this is how I've configured VTK so far:

 Qt5_DIR                          /home/user/Qt/5.7/gcc_64/lib/cmake/Qt5
VTK_Group_Qt                     ON
VTK_QT_VERSION                   5

I guess this configuration follows your suggestions. So the problem
might be another. Where should I find QVTK?
