It worked finally!!

What I did is:
1. Installed the PV3FoamReader module as suggested in the README:
* cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
* ./Allwclean
* ./Allwmake

2. Compile ParaView
* cd $FOAM_INST_DIR/ThirdParty
* rm -rf ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms
* buildParaView3.3-cvs

Just as suggested by Jaswinder, READ the README file carefully and you'll figure it out.

Dear all!!

Finally I managed to install OF 1.5.x. Now I have problems to build paraview. I followed the readme file (as also outlined by Ying), i.e. installed the PV3FoamReader module first and received the following messages:

[aa@lws16 PV3FoamReader]$ ./Allwclean

Hi!!

I searched for the vtkConfigure.h file and found it here:

/home/E202/aa/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linuxGcc/ VTK/vtkConfigure.h

I am somehow confused (from the beginning of the OF installation) why to have a ThirdParty folder in the ThirdParty folder?

Thx for any help!!

when i search for cmake i can find the folder cmake-2.4.6 in

/home/E202/aa/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ThirdParty/

so i suppose that cmake is installed. am i right?? hm, but maybe the fact that it is in /home/E202/aa/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ThirdParty/ and not in /home/E202/aa/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ causes the problem. i ll copy it to /home/E202/aa/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ try and report.

The error message is quite explicit. The reader module requires library "libpython2.5.so". Do you have Python (2.5) installed in your system?

If the compilation still fails, please check first what causes it. There may be several libraries you need to install before it works. Good luck!

I installed python 2.5, but its somehow strange as I cannot find the required library "libpython2.5.so". Does anybody have an idea how to solve this problem?

Hi Aram!

The compilation process assumes that the library is located at /usr/lib/libpython2.5.so Is the library present there? For instance if the standard-python for your distro is 2.4 and you installed 2.5 as an addition it might be found at /usr/local/lib/libpython2.5.so or similar locations. Have a look. Then you change the line in the buildParaview....-script that comes with OF that says

PYTHON_LIBRARY=""

to point to the actual place of that library

For fedora system,libpython2.5.so belong to the package python-devel,not python.

Bernhard and linzhenhuab thx for your advice!

Yes it was the python-devel containing the libpython2.5.so, I get it now.

Still cannot compile successfully, getting the following messages:

When I search for the files

moc_PV3FoamReaderPluginImplementation.o

qrc_PV3FoamReader.o

they are available, but

linuxGccDPOpt/libPV3FoamReader.so and
PV3FoamReader.dir/all

cannot be found (as suggested by the error message). What confuses me most are the lines

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lhistory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I searched for their meaning on the forum and in the web but got no hint, so I don t know what to do. Somebody has an idea?

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Hello,

@ /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lhistory

You need the devel. package called "readline".

You might also need the runtime libraries provided by a package called "libreadline".

Adjust for your Linux distro.

thx martin! i installed the devel. package called "readline" and finally the compilation of Paraview 3.3 and the PV3FoamReader module worked. also thx to the others who helped me so far!!

i get a small problem though: when I want to visualize the cavity case (by typing paraFoam in the case directory) ParaView 3.3.0 opens with a window telling me:

A reader for "cavity.OpenFOAM" could not be found. Please choose one ...

when i choose any i get the errors posted below. i could not find any hint in the forum. does somebody have any??

thx a lot in advance!

thx martin! i installed the devel. package called "readline" and finally the compilation of Paraview 3.3 and the PV3FoamReader module worked. also thx to the others who helped me so far!!

i get a small problem though: when I want to visualize the cavity case (by typing paraFoam in the case directory) ParaView 3.3.0 opens with a window telling me:

A reader for "cavity.OpenFOAM" could not be found. Please choose one ...

when i choose any i get the errors posted below. i could not find any hint in the forum. does somebody have any??

thx a lot in advance!

hi all!

i checked my qt version again and realized that qmake points to the older version of qt installed on my computer. i changed that so

qmake --version

gives now:

QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.5 in /usr/lib

again i installed the PV3FoamReader module and compiled paraview but when running paraFoam for the cavity case, paraview opens but showing nothing, no tabs, no time instances without giving any error message. i cannot even find "cavity" written anywhere. please can somebody help me??

thx a lot in advance!

Hi Aram,

I also couldn't use paraFoam to open the cavity case directly.

I then searched the forum and followed suggestions by other friends here, which is to use an alternative approach, "foamToVTK", to convert results from openFOAM format to VTK format. VTK format files can be recognized by paraView correctly.
foamToVTK -case $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/icoFoam/cavity

Still digging on details though because now what I have in the ParaView GUI is different from what's shown in the tutorial (http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/do...#x30-1750006.1)...

That's my two cents.
Ying

hi Ying

I am also facing the same difficulty. and In my case also foamToVTK is working quite fine.
I am using Qt-4.3.5. Which Qt version you are using?
It might be because of the different qt versions. The paraview version of the tutorial case is compiled with 4.3.2 for 32 bit and 4.3.1 for 64 bit system. Have u tried ur compilation with 4.3.2/4.3.1 at ur system?

Keep posting about the progress. I am also diggin into it ;)

i want to say thank you to all for your support!!
