Hello everyone

I am at my very first time dealing with LINUX as well as OpenFOAM, I have been practising according to the tutorial of the official site. Now I have a problem about paraview, I have searched a bit on internet, but couldnt solve it.

My problem is I DO NOT HAVE MENU BAR IN PARAVIEW.....I sensed it may have something to do with the system or the software version... my Linux is ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS 64-bit, my OpenFOAM is 2.1.1, and paraview is 3.12.0 64-bit, as you can see in the attached figure....

I have no one around me know this software....I am really stuck....can anyone help me out?

Thank you

Greetings kenya0514,

That's a feature of Ubuntu's Unity... the menu is on the bar on the top of the screen.
  1. Look at the top bar on your screen.
  2. Move your mouse over that bar...
  3. aim a bit to the middle of the screen...
  4. see the menu appearing there?
Best regards,
Bruno

I wasted the whole day install uninstall different versions.... might have used the time to get me a new pair of glasses...

Er... another short question, after the very first time i have installed openfoam and followed the tutorial, I remembered that the automatically created .OpenFOAM will remain even after closing the graphical window, but now....after millions time of installation, this .OpenFOAM file disappears the same time I close the window....is that normal? how do I solve this problem? (or is it not vanishing but just hinden in some corner of my computer ;D)

You might have opened and closed ParaView so many times, that it looked like the file was still there... but the standard way of working is:
  1. You run:
    Code:
    paraFoam
  2. It creates the file "case name.OpenFOAM" and opens it in ParaView.
  3. When ParaView is closed, the file is removed automatically by paraFoam.
If you want the file to be there for the next time you run ParaView, then you can create the file with either one of the following commands:
Code:
paraFoam -builtin
touch case.OpenFOAM
Have fun!
