I am running OpenFOAM on Ubuntu 7.10.

First, since I completed the install, every time I start my terminal, it executes three commands and then gives me the command prompt. I am not at my machine right now, so I don't have the exact text that it shows. This is not a big problem, but I am wondering if it is normal.

Second, when I run paraFoam, the display does not work correctly. The display area and toolbar buttons are transparent. Anyone have an idea of what would cause this?

Thanks,

Matt

Yes it is.

For the second question, I've never had such problems, make a search in the forum or wait for somebody with more experience

Francesco,

Thank you for your reply.

I searched the forum before posting and was not able to find a solution. Lets hope somebody out there has one.

Matt,
Are you using one of the fancy desktop environments like compiz or beryl? paraFoam (paraview) doesn't seem to like it, or some-such, and applies transparency where it shouldn't.

I would suggest disabling your 3d effects while you do post-processing or get used to the transparency.

This is for paraview 2.6.x I don't know if the latest version has the same issues.

Regards,
Mike

Mike,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am using Compiz. I will disable it this evening when I get home and see what happens. I will post the outcome.

Hi

I have had the same problems with Paraview, when I ran Ubuntu 7.10. I found out, that if I opened paraFoam in a terminal in Workspace 1 and moved the paraFoam window to any of the other workspaces, many of the problems disappeared. At least the toolbar buttons showed the correct icons.

Best regards,

Niels
