I have compiled Qt 4.3.5 and therefore, paraview 3.3 and PV3FoamReader modules.

when running the paraFoam or paraview, for that matter, It shows the paraview window but in less than 3 seconds, it disappears. On the terminal window it displays the following:

"
[Yusuf@f9 cavity]$ paraFoam

Any clue?

Thanks in advance.

Dear David,

I have exactly the same problem. And I don't know how to solve it !

So for the moment I don't use no more the ParaView3.3-cvs version but ParaView3.4. After having solved a problem (with icoFoam for example) I use the command 'foamToVTK'. Then I launch paraview and open VTK files.

Let me know if you find how to solve the paraFoam problem. Thanks in advance.

Dear All,

I also have exact problem as you guys, but unfortunately, everytime when I try to search in the forum, there are not actually solved.

But this time, I think I have solved the problem (for myself). The problem is with the display. Before I solved the problem, I didn't realize that my display device was not activated/installed (in my uBuntu) which I use nVidia. After I activated or install the device, the problem is solved. Not more warning, and I can use the paraview as usual now.

Good luck!

I had similar errors when connecting via ssh to the machine running paraview (even with paraview 3.8.1).

Setting the environment variable via the command below worked for me.

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=y

I tried this after reading http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1098568

Hope this helps anyone else in the same boat.
