Installing CMake

Download the latest release of CMake or any version > 2.8.8, and install.

Installing Qt

Download the Qt5.2 Installer and install into a directory of your choosing.

Later when you configure VTK, remember to pass the option

cmake -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE:PATH=/path/to/qmake /path/to/VTK

Alternatively, Download the source tarball and build Qt yourself. If you do this, you'll need to include the path to Qt in your CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH

cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH:PATH=/path/to/Qt5.2.1/5.2.1/gcc_64

Configure

Use ccmake to set the options interactively, or pass the options on the command line.

  cmake ../VTK -G "UNIX Makefiles"        \
         -DVTK_USE_QVTK:BOOL=ON            \
         -DVTK_USE_CARBON:BOOL=ON          \
         -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local \
         -DVTK_USE_GUISUPPORT:BOOL=ON
