Hi,

error message suggests you to install paraview. You can do it as usual in Ubuntu, either using apt-get, or synaptic, or 'Software center'.

Have you included the line for OpenFOAM in your .bashrc as mentioned on the installation page?

On my computer I have installed foam-extend-3.1. However, paraview doesn't open. This is my output message from the terminal:

Code:
a@a-Aspire-V3-571:~/foam/foam-extend-3.1/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity$ paraFoam
created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'
/home/a/foam/foam-extend-3.1/bin/paraFoam: line 142: paraview: command not found
I BELIEVE THAT PARAVIEW IS NOT INSTALLED. I think inside "ThirdParty" folder is the installation package. Then I try to do it.. Inside ThirdParty folder, running a there are AllMake's ...The "AllMake.stage4" is for Paraview:
Screenshot from 2014-07-22 22:02:31.jpg

When I type ./AllMake.stage4, I got this error:

If I install paraView out of foam-extend this folder, ie install regardless of foam-extend as if it had not installed foam-extend on my computer work? Or should I install through the files contained in ThirdParty? If I can install by this way (and if it is easier this way), perhaps it would be better, instead of trying to solve this problem so I posted, because may be too difficult to solve.

Below are build instructions for Ubuntu 14.04.

These instructions assume that you install in the default location, which is
~/foam/ . Create this folder with:

cd ~
mkdir foam


* Obtain and unpack source code (if you read this, you probably already have):

The recommended way is to get the source code through git source code
management system. This way, you can get updates and bugfixes easily by running
"git pull". To install into the default location run:

cd ~/foam
git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.1


Alternatively, you can download a snapshot (.tgz) of the source code from:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/open...am-extend-3.1/


* Update your Ubuntu installation:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

* Install required packages:

sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential binutils-dev flex \
zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libncurses5-dev libiberty-dev \
libxt-dev rpm mercurial graphviz openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev cmake


* For Ubuntu 14.04, you need to customize some of the ThirdParty packages
in order to enable the usage of system-provided packages, and to enable
the compilation of other, like bison-2.7.

Here is a list of sed commands that will do just that. You can copy/paste
the following block of commands in a control terminal in order to make
the necessary adjustments. You will need to be located at the root of your
foam-extend-3.1 installation for those commands to work.

################################################## ##################
#
# Create a prefs.sh file
cp etc/prefs.sh-EXAMPLE etc/prefs.sh

# Use openmpi 1.6.5 as supplied by Ubuntu 14.04
sed -i s/"#export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/"export WM_MPLIB=SYSTEMOPENMPI"/g etc/prefs.sh
sed -i s/"#export OPENMPI_DIR=path_to_system_installed_openmpi"/"export OPENMPI_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
sed -i s/"#export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR=\$OPENMPI_DIR\/bin"/"export OPENMPI_BIN_DIR=\$OPENMPI_DIR\/bin"/g etc/prefs.sh

# Use Qt 4.8.6 as provided by Ubuntu 14.04
sed -i s/"#export QT_DIR=path_to_system_installed_qt"/"export QT_DIR=\/usr"/g etc/prefs.sh
sed -i s/"#export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/"export QT_BIN_DIR=\$QT_DIR\/bin"/g etc/prefs.sh

# Use cmake 2.8.12.2 as provided by Ubuntu 14.04
sed -i s/"( rpm_make -p cmake"/"#( rpm_make -p cmake"/g ThirdParty/AllMake.stage1

# Compile and install bison-2.7 from the ThirdParty packages.
sed -i 0,/"#( rpm_make -p bison-2.7"/s//"( rpm_make -p bison-2.7"/ ThirdParty/AllMake.stage1

#
################################################## ##################


* Set environment variables:

cd ~/foam/foam-extend-3.1
. etc/bashrc

Optionally, set environment variable for compiling Cuda solvers, for example
(replace "sm_30" with value according to your GPU architecture):

export CUDA_ARCH=sm_30


* Compile:

./Allwmake.firstInstall


* Create user directory:

mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN


And you are ready to start.

I don't use OF-extend, so I can't really help there.
Paraview comes with the vanilla OF distribution, you might be able to use that instead.

Can I use paraview from openfoam-2.3 installation to see my results from cases of foam-extend? If yes .. I'll install it (openfoam 2.3), because this problem is difficult to solve ...

you could download and install paraview as a standalone software from below site.

http://www.paraview.org/download/

it is not short way but i use for now.
then create a dummy file named "anything.foam" in your case folder,
open paraview
File ->
Open ->
change "Files of type" to All Files (*)
select
"anything.foam" file
double click.

i hope more professional helps come.

best regards.

You can probably also use the paraFoam version from an OpenFOAM installation by writing a short script that sources the OpenFOAM version that includes paraFoam, start paraFoam and source the OF-Extend version again.

Greetings to all!

@steven123: The error message you showed in post #10 is letting you know that cmake is not installed:

If you look at the post #8 by Hassan, you'll see the following 3 lines of code:
Code:
sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential binutils-dev flex \
zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libncurses5-dev libiberty-dev \
libxt-dev rpm mercurial graphviz openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev cmake
The backslash "\" at the end of each line indicates that the text will continue on the next line. In other words, the complete line is this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential binutils-dev flex zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libncurses5-dev libiberty-dev libxt-dev rpm mercurial graphviz openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev cmake
Now, if you run the above line in the terminal, does it give you any error messages?

Best regards,
Bruno

same problem here. following the instructions here to use system installed paraview didn't work
http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kur...OwnLaptop.html

Problem with this uncommenting and running this line
Code:
 sed -i -e 's=\.OpenFOAM=\.foam=' foam-extend-3.1/bin/paraFoam
since you are already in foam-extend-3.1 directory

And I guess there are implications when you do this, it changes the right file but it wouldn't work when running paraFoam in foam 3.1 extend
Code:
 sed -i -e 's=\.OpenFOAM=\.foam=' bin/paraFoam

Greetings haze_1986,

Sorry, I'm confused by your description

Does the last command line you provided fix the problem or not?
  1. If it does, then feel free to send an email to the author of that page, reporting that error. The email address is provided here: http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kurser/OS_CFD/
  2. If it doesn't, then have you confirmed if ParaView is properly installed in your system?
    • If it is installed properly, then what is the specific problem?
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno, thanks for the info, but the updated line doesn't allow us to use system installed paraview as well. Based on the instructions it is a multi version install, and parafoam works for the other versions, just not in extend 3.1.

Just a detailed explanation to what I have done and the error message:
Code:
sed -i -e 's=\.OpenFOAM=\.foam=' foam-extend-3.1/bin/paraFoam
Code:
sed: can't read foam-extend-3.1/bin/paraFoam: No such file or directory
I realised I am actually already in foam-extend-3.1, so I used this line instead
Code:
sed -i -e 's=\.OpenFOAM=\.foam=' bin/paraFoam
The paraFoam file has been successfully edited, no errors here.

I followed the compilation instruction to compile foam extend 3.1, no errors in the compilation log but in the foam 3.1 extend environment I am unable to run paraFoam, it will say that paraview is not installed.

Mmm... OK, then how exactly have you installed ParaView?

In other words, what were the exact commands or steps you've followed to install ParaView?

And if it's installed on your system, then what do these commands give you?
Code:
which paraview
ls -l /usr/bin/paraview
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno, I have installed paraview based on building them following the instructions while compiling 2.3.x as shown in the link.

In the f31 environment,
which paraview does not give me anything,
ls -l /usr/bin/paraview gave an error
Code:
cannot access /usr/bin/paraview: No such file or directory
In the OF23x environment,
which paraview gave
Code:
/home/haze/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.3.x/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-4.1.0/bin/paraview
ls -l /usr/bin/paraview gave an error
Code:
cannot access /usr/bin/paraview: No such file or directory

Hi haze_1986,

Then all of that means that ParaView is not installed in your system. And that the ParaView version you have on OpenFOAM 2.3.x was built specifically for OpenFOAM 2.3.x, therefore it's not installed as a "system installed" ParaView version.

Which Linux Distribution are you using? Because installing the system ParaView version depends on the Linux Distribution you are using.

Best regards,
Bruno
