Hi,

For all that have problems with linking paraview to OpenFoam, you can ignore this step (at least as a new user).

Just use the command: foamToVTK before launching paraview to visualize your results.

BTW, if you need to install paraview, paraview3.4 is available at:
http://www.paraview.org/paraview/res.../software.html

Good luck,

Jean

I have problems with paraFoam with Linux11.1.

Or what are the advantages to use paraFoam ?

Thanks,
Stephane

Stephane,

I am a new user too! I only used this way so far.

My understanding is that the "paraFoam" command launches paraview and does some file conversion as well.
