Surely you can do SOMETHING to solve the problem. Find some file and put it in place so it can be found during compilation process.

Be more specific. Post a fragment of the log file with error.

OpenSUSE 13.1 here and OpenFOAM and paraview compilation process was successful.

since it's my first time using linux and OpenFOAM, I don't know how to find the file, later I'll show some detailed information, thank you for replying. Can I post process the result calculated by OpenFOAM without Paraview?

It depends on what do you mean by post-processing. Copying files from one folder to another can also be "post-processing". If you'd like to visualize results quickly, paraview is the easiest way.

Also on OpenSUSE 13.1 you can install paraview 4.0.1 from standard repository with zypper, it has built-in OpenFOAM reader.

I'd like to visualize the results, such as can I use Techplot to process it? Thank you for your advice, I'll try it.

You can't use Tecplot directly - http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Tecplot.

But, I guess, it'll be easier to find that "some file" and build paraview.

Greetings to all!

Instructions for building OpenFOAM 2.3.0 and ParaView 4.1.0 on openSUSE 13.1 have been available on the wiki for some time now: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...2.3.0/openSUSE

As for the wiki page about Teplot: it's outdated. The latest Tecplot versions are able to mostly handle OpenFOAM cases, although from what I've read on the forum, it's not yet full-proof.

Best regards,
Bruno
