Compiling VTK-8.1.2 on MacBook Pro high Sierra

Zoltan Takacs

I was unable to compile VTK-8.1.2 on a MacBook Pro 2017 high Sierra. 

CMake Error at >/usr/local/lib/cmake/Qt5Core/Qt5CoreConfig.cmake:15 (message): The imported target "Qt5::Core" references the file


but this file does not exist. Possible reasons include:

  • The file was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.
  • An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.
  • The installation package was faulty and contained

    but not all the files it references.
Call Stack (most recent call first)

I have added the qt5 bin folder in the opt folder to the PATH but still getting the error. 

How can this error be resolved? Is there a solution?
