I think we are still not quite there yet, there should be an error even further up. Remember we are looking for the very first error notification.

This is the first error regarding PV3FoamReader.
Code:
make[5]: Target `CMakeFiles/PV3FoamReader.dir/build' not remade because of errors.
make[4]: *** [CMakeFiles/PV3FoamReader.dir/all] Error 2
The above was followed by script proceeding, the next error was the one posted before.

Additionally: What exactly are you looking for?

What you are posting is just a notification at the end of the build process that the build didn't complete due to errors. What I am looking for is the error description that might give us a clue how to fix things. I'm sorry I can't give more details because there is not standard scheme what the description will look like. Might be something like "./Allwmake: cmake: command not found" or could be "error: mpi.h: no such file or directory" or might be even something else. Can you upload your logfile somewhere? Then I could have a look at it myself.

Greetings to all!

John:
  • the first "Error " comes from "wmake libso tecio/tecsrc".
  • PV3FoamReader also won't build. But those two are the only libraries/utilities that didn't build.
  • in Ubuntu 10.04 you will need to install the package "libxt-dev". It's needed for both the tecplot utility as well as Paraview. It comes as standard in previous Ubuntu versions, but for some reason it isn't included in 10.04.
  • You will also need to rebuild Paraview in Ubuntu 10.04, but you can use Qt that comes with it.
Best regards,
Bruno

I installed libxt-dev.

After rerunning the script, I rebuilt Paraview using.
Code:
./makeParaView
Here is the log-file from the OpenFoam reinstall.

Greetings John,

Well, at least the utility for tecplot built nicely this time

Actually, just a few hours ago, Nicolas has posted what other packages are missing (source: Missing packages on ubuntu 10.04):

Sorry about that, I didn't know that Ubuntu 10.04 had so many changes in its packaging system

After installing those packages, you will only need to run the following commands:
Code:
cd "$FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader"
./Allwclean
./Allwmake
And voilá, paraFoam should now work


Additionally, if you want the Paraview's help up and running, you'll also need to install the package "qt4-dev-tools" and then rebuild Paraview

Best regards,
Bruno

Greetings Bruno.

I re-ran the process, with all additional packages.

Upon completion, I entered the directory below.
Code:
~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6.x/paraview-3.6.1/platforms/linuxGcc/bin$
Then ran.
Code:
./paraview
The application opened without error.

Additionally, if further information / testing is need please let me know.

So consensus is that we need to add these packages to the apt-get section:

libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libglib2.0-dev


and then the script works with 10.4?

Not really, when I install OpenFOAM with your 9.10 script (with the included apt-gets) on my 64bit 10.04 system and then do:

sudo apt-get install libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libglib2.0-dev

Followed by

Code:
cd "$FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader"
./Allwclean
./Allwmake
Then it still gives an error, as seen in the attachment.

Ok, my compilation error is solved, but an extra package was needed. When I also install libpng12-dev (and maybe libpng12-0, but that was already on my system), then it compiles.

All these things should be tested on a freshly installed Ubuntu 10.04 system as everybody has different configurations with different apps and thus different installed libraries.

I'm sorry about that, I didn't quote all of the necessary text from Nicolas post from the other thread

edit: Cedric, can you confirm that foamToTecplot360 built properly?

Yes, it is properly compiled. Following packages need to be installed minimally:

sudo apt-get install -y binutils-dev flex git-core build-essential python-dev libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools libreadline5-dev wget zlib1g-dev cmake libxt-dev libxi-dev libxrender-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxinerama-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libglib2.0-dev libpng12-dev

It should be tested if more packages are needed on a completely fresh Ubuntu 10.04 installation.

Hi

I've installed OpenFoam with MadsR install-cookbook script.
I've uncomment git in the apt-get line. The installation worked fin.
Ibus was installed afterword.

ParaFoam doesn't work fine, in 10.4. it starts but it complains about Ibus not find. And then I start Ibus but it still looks bad.
SimpleFoam works.

Some thing has to be added before the script works smooth

Can you elaborate why you think it looks bad? ibus should not have any influence on the display, from what I read it only concerns keyboard input.

The program looks fine. But the results / visualisation looks bad.
It looks very blocky and no result about for example streamlines.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.04.

Hi
Brand new to OpenFoam and linux so
i used the link to download in install openFoam.
When i went throught the log fiel during the "installation test section" it bnoted a few criticals. so i ran teh foamInstallationtest again and got a fatal error.

FATAL ERROR: OpenFOAM environment not configured.
For this error, the installation has given you the right hint.
*************************************
Please refer to the installation section of the README file:
<openfoam>/OpenFOAM-1.5/README
to source the OpenFOAM environment.
*******************************

I went through the readme instructions but it did not help.
Any suggestions, am i being daft should i run the installOF again...?

OK, can you specify which link are you talking about? Because this particular thread has various links to various installation scripts And each script has its own particularities, including bugs

Additionally, what steps did you take to use that script?

Best regards,
Bruno
