Default Is ThirdParty-2-2-0 package corrupted?

sudo is on a distinguished road
I just finished compiling OpenFOAM 2.2.0 that was released a few days ago on a Xeon workstation running Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. Compilation took about 90 minutes using 6 cores, and -march=native flag for GCC. No error messages, everything compiled very smoothly. Now to the 'Fail' part

Following the instructions on the OpenFoam web site, I started compiling the third party software. So I typed in the terminal
Code:
~$ cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
then
Code:
~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.0$ ./makeParaView
but then I got the following error
Code:
did not find ParaView-3.12.0 in these directories:
  WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR=/home/mbadawy/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.0

abort build
The ParaView package is inside the folder compressed as gtgz, but I get an error when I try to uncompress it, so could there be a problem with the original package? The md5sum checked out fine, so I don't know what is going on here.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: I downloaded the package from here: http://www.openfoam.org/download/source.php

I just wanted to add that ParaView 3.14.1 was already available in the official Ubuntu 12.10 repos, so I am not sure why the latest OF ships with PV 3.12.0?!!!

So, a workaround for me was to install it from the Ubuntu repos, and then each time I need to execute
Code:
$ paraFoam
I'll use the following instead
Code:
$ paraFoam -builtin
I already tried it and it's working like a charm.

Hi sudo,

I think they messed up the packaging this time: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=770

Basically, you need to first unpack the 3 files contained in the ThirdParty folder:
Code:
tar xf openmpi-1.6.3.tar.bz2
tar xf ParaView-3.12.0.gtgz
tar xf scotch_6.0.0.tar.gz
Then you can build ParaView; Open-MPI and Scotch will be built when you build OpenFOAM using Allwmake.

As for sticking with ParaView-3.12.0? I can only try and guess that it was due to stability reasons. Either that, or they are planning something...

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks Bruno, I tried to double click on the package but always gave me an error. Your tar commands worked perfectly.

I'll stick to ParaView 3.14 as the OpenFOAM website also recommends that for Ubuntu 12.10, and it recommends the 3.12.0 only for prior releases.

I just renamed it to ParaView-3.12.0.tgz then ran 'tar -zxf' as usual.

Greetings to all!

Just close the loop on this: this has been solved. They've uploaded a new package with everything ready to go!
