I use PyQt5 (WITH qT 5.6.0) AND vtk 7.0.0 IN WIN32 
All works fine

Hi all,

I have the same question as Alex on this list had in April last year:


Is it possible to use PyQt5 with VTK 6.2?

I'm on a *buntu system, and the python-vtk6 package installs the following Qt related files:

estan at newton:~$ dpkg -L python-vtk6 | grep -i qt

ldd on the .so shows it is linking against Qt 5, but is that enough. Or must I have a QVTKRenderWindowInteractor that works with PyQt5 as well? It seems a port of that class to PyQt5 was done only 5 months ago:


So would not be in 6.2 :/

Are there really no software out there which uses PyQt5 + VTK and only make use of packaged versions?
