I installed the latest version of cmake (3.8.1) using step 2 of this link showing how to compile yourself in my home directory. I then went on to install ccmake using sudo apt-get install cmake-curses-gui. Running ccmake --version shows that the ccmake version installed is 3.2.2. When I check the cmake version using cmake --version it shows the version is in fact 3.8.1. But when I try to use ccmake (I'm using it to install VTK, so the command is ccmake ../vtk), the gui popup shows up with build variables but I can't edit/configure anything because it shows the error "CMake 3.3 or higher is required, you are running version 3.2.2"

Is there a way I can point the installed ccmake to the right cmake version?
