Fluent on Linux Error
 
Hello to All

I'm running a reactor calculation in Fluent at Linux. But i am using the VNC viewer to control the linux system.

This mean that i have the computer without monitor, because all the things i do it through VNC server.

But give me some error:

Error message from graphics function Compute_transform:
Cannot find a display driver at or above '?active'

I need to connect a monitor always that i want to see the resuts? Or just install the opengl drivers?

Best Regards and thank

1. You can use Fluent without the graphical interface, for the exact syntax try something like:

fluent --h
fluent --help

you will see all the available options, or check your manuals.

2. Your VNC server let's you connect in graphical mode on Linux or you have access to a terminal ? You use mouse clicks on Linux or commands ?

Thank for the reply.

The fluent work fine. The only problem is the message and i cannot do the pos-processing treatment on that machine and through the VNC serrver

Try something like:

fluent 2ddp -driver x11

in a terminal window (not sure it will work for your case), this should open Fluent in graphical mode.
