Bug Description

(This bug is a subset of the bug report #888652 submitted by Doug Arnold on the Dorsal project page.)

LD_LIBRARY_PATH in dolfin.conf should be adjusted to contain the path to VTK (defaults to ${INSTALL_PATH}/lib/vtk-5.8 when using Dorsal).

I don't think we should add the VTK path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in dolfin.conf. It would be better to let Dorsal install its own .conf file, for instance dorsal.conf or fenics.conf, and source dolfin.conf from there. We could then add additional paths into this file based on the platform Dorsal is building for.

I'm retargeting this bug to Dorsal.

I failed to notice that this had been "fixed" earlier (by just augmenting the instructions).
