Hello,

Today I started the tutorial for OpenFOAM-1.5
I already started the cavity case in the 1.4.1 version some time ago, but lack of time held me back from finishing it.
I just found the courage to start it again and at the same moment the new release came out. Great timing... so I installed the new release and started the tutorial again.

My problem however:
Opening paraFoam gives an error message (not in the terminal):
" A reader for "cavity.OpenFOAM" could not be found. Please choose one: " this is followed by a long list of file formats. OpenFOAM is one of them, but this doesn't work.
As I remembered and found in the user guide, paraFoam should open cavity.foam and not cavity.OpenFOAM.

Can anybody help me with this?

Hello Guerts,

first of all, check that you installed OpenFOAM 1.5 properly (OF packages, binaries, third party tools).

If everything is OK, you probably are meeting a common problem with paraview and Qt libraries which was discussed in the README file and in the bug section (see for example the suse-related bug).

You might want to recompile paraview, after installing Qt 4.3. However it's not necessary: simply convert your case to VTK with foamToVTK and open it directly in paraview.

Regards,
Alberto

Yes, I met the same problem this day on my laptop OpenSUSE-11.0 (32 bits), but Everything is fine with my another PC which is 64 bits, I will check if it is related with my QT installation.

foamToVTK is good, but a little inconvenient.

Regards,
Daniel

Geurts,

There is unfortunately a mismatch between the docs and the reality. If you check the contents of the bin/paraFoam script, you'll see that the .OpenFOAM extension is indeed being used.

The change from .foam to .OpenFOAM avoids potential conficts between the two OpenFOAM readers available for paraview.

The .foam reader is the paraview native reader, but IMO you *really* need the patched version from Takuya to make it usable for anything but trivial cases. Fortunately Takuya is busy improving it all the time and his version might show up in the general paraview version sometime soon.

The .OpenFOAM reader is part of the OpenFOAM installation (located under applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader) and uses the OpenFOAM libraries.

Thanks for the quick responses.

Alberto, I installed the Qt 4.3.x package before installing paraview. So I think I do not to recompile it. However, I tried recompiling it because I encountered this problem, but it messed things up even more, so I deleted all ThirdParty packages and reinstalled them, giving me the first error again.

Mark, I am at work now and will try the PV3FoamReader tonight. I will keep you posted.

I got the same problem using paraFoam on my machine although I thought I would not have, since I run Ubuntu 8.04 on my machine. The OpenFOAM README file says "ubuntu-8.04: Version 4.3.4", however "qmake --version" reports "Using Qt version 4.4.0 in /usr/lib".

So, maybe there has been some updates in Ubuntu since the README was written.

Dear all:

Any suggestions where I can download Qt 4.3.x from? TrolTech has 4.4.x available for download. I also have another question: if per OpenFoam Documentation Qt must be installed, then why not include it in the thirdparty packages instead of having users do it?

I am using qt 4.4.0 and it works fine for me.
there was a problem with compiling paraview, but that is easily fixed by editing the file CMakeLists.txt.

Find the lines below and comment out the MESSAGE.

IF (NOT qt_version_tmp)
# MESSAGE(SEND_ERROR "Qt ${QTVERSION} not supported. Please use Qt 4.3 (you may need to clean your dirtied cache).")

I have another question:

Where should Qt 4.4 be installed. Since cmake is in a separate folder in the "Third Party" directory, should qt be installed in its own folder also or in the same folder as paraview.

Thanks

It is not clear from the Qt license that we are permitted to distribute the source but anyway it is not clear that we should given that it is pretty standard system library. Also it is not needed by OpenFOAM directly but by ParaView-3, so if it were to be included it should be included in that source-pack rather than ours. The older versions of Qt are available from the TrolTech site if you have problems with Qt 4.4.x. Our understanding is that the next release of ParaView3 will support Qt 4.4.x and we will move to that version then.

Henry:

I downloaded OpenFOAM 1.5. I ran
qmake --version

as suggested in the readme file. However qmake came up empty. Hence my question as to where Qt should be installed.

Also note that I am running Suse 10.0. will an upgraded Suse be required to run OpenFoam 1.5? No mention is made of this under system requirements.

1. I don't think there are any system requirements for OF, since you are working with Linux.
2. But why not upgrade OpenSUSE 11.0, the new version is very good.

> Hence my question as to where Qt should be installed.
1. Anywhere, only be sure you set "PATH" to it, then it can be found.

The TrollTech website has Qt for different applications and intentions. Iam not sure which one I should be downloading. I went to download the following but stopped noting that the file was over 111 megs:

Qt Open Source Edition for C++ Developers: Embedded Linux Download

Is this what we should be downloading. It seems to be an awful lot of code just to run Paraview.

I would appreicate it if someone could post a link to the correct QT file.

Thanks.

Dear to all,

I have tried to open the cavity/icoFoam case file after solved. But the paraview asking to choose a appropriate reader to open the file.

When I choose the OpenFOAM files option it was crashed and exit with saying the below comments,
--------------------------------------------------
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_create
/home/harikr/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/bin/paraFoam: line 83: 13772 Aborted paraview --data=$caseFile
--------------------------------------------------

I have did the 7th step as like in READ ME for rebuilding and compiling the paraView and PV3Foam Reader using the steps as mentioned there.

But it results in unable to open the Paraview window itself after running the ./Allwmake.

I can work with converting into VTK formats and can open the file through in legacy vtk files.

But I would like to read the .OpenFOAM file.. the real one..

I have also checked with the paraFoam script file for the .OpenFOAM extension for whether any # mark is included, But it was not like that.

Could anybody advice me in this regard?
Kindly ask me if you need any more information.

Thanks in Advance.

See the attached message below by Niklas. It appears that he has installed and is using Qt4.4.
http://www.cfd-online.com/cgi-bin/OpenFOAM_Discus/show.cgi?tpc=126&post=25947#POST259 47

Trolltech site has Qt4.4.1. I did not have much luck trying to download it from the trolltech site and will try later in the day. But you can try the same and see if Qt4.4.1 works for you. Older versions of Qt are also available at the site. The link for that is:

Hello everyone.

I also have a problem running the cavity example, after typing:
>cd $HOME/OpenFOAM/${USER}-${WM_PROJECT_VERSION}/run/tutorials/icoFoam/cavity
>blockMesh
>icoFoam
>paraFoam
The paraFoam viewer window opens along with a dialog box asking me to select a reader out of a list. I select OpenFoam, and the window crashes, and I get the following error msg:
[skoeberl@stokes cavity]$ paraFoam
Qt has caught an exception thrown from an event handler. Throwing
exceptions from an event handler is not supported in Qt. You must
reimplement QApplication::notify() and catch all exceptions there.

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_create
/home/skoeberl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/bin/paraFoam: line 83: 21573 Aborted paraview --data=$caseFile

Any ideas on what I should do would be much appreciated.

(Aside: This also builds the ThirdParty directory doesn't it? If I run the individual Allwmake scripts from each directory separately, I have problems, as I will show later. )

So I'm missing some macros and a file:
/home/skoeberl/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linuxGcc/VTK/VTKCon figQT.cmake

However I do have:
/home/skoeberl/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linuxGcc/VTK/VTKCon fig.cmake

I'll try making a renamed copy.

Hi sean, have you solved this problem? Would you like to post it?

You might want to recompile paraview, after installing Qt 4.3. However it's not necessary: simply convert your case to VTK with foamToVTK and open it directly in paraview.

Regards,

Alberto, I was under the impression that Qt was a toolkit for GUIs (widgets, menus, etc.) Does it really have anything to do with plug-ins and reading files?
