Hi
Thank you for your help.
After installing OF, I tried to treat the example of "cavity" in README file mentioned in Section 6,
I got "0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5" folders
I did not get the display on screen as it appears in User Guide (Figure 6.1), see the attached file

Thank you

I think you didn't install as mentioned in the README file.
Refer to section seven of the README for the compilation of ParaView and your problem will be gone.

EDIT: gwierink suggested it allready in Post #16.

Hi Lynda,

Now you seemingly managed to compile paraFoam. The reason ParaView cannot find a reader for your case is probably that you have not yet recompiled the PV3FoamReader (as indeed mentioned in the README file). For this do the following:

Code:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
Code:
./Allwclean
Code:
./Allwmake
(Note again the dot (".") before the command)

You will have to install cmake before!
BTW: Still trying to install in the root-directory?

This may be (I'm not sure) because you are installing in the root-directory and not in your user account. (Why did you do this again?)

Check for section 3.1 in the README. Maybe this will solve the problem.

Why use Fedora when you aren't comfortable with Linux? Why not use Ubuntu or OpenSuse?
Why are you installing as root?

I would think about the answers to those questions before proceeding further.

Just a hint for the paraFoam reader problems. The reader is a bit sensitive to the version of Qt you use. For example, I did not manage to make it work correctly, even if it builds, on OpenSUSE 11.2, where it launches paraview, it opens the case but it does not show data or it shows them not correctly.

You can easily workaround the problem using pvFoam, that can be downloaded from the wiki:

http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...r_for_ParaView

Simply build it, and copy the pvFoam bash script in a directory included in your PATH.

Best,

Hi
please help me, I have a great problem ! I have used the Fedora7 distribution for the installation of OF , but I found problem in the post processing (ParaFoam).
Is it due to the fedora distribution ? or to the Qt,.... versions?

Fedora 7? Hmm, I don't know, the oldest Fedora I used was 9. The Qt version I used is 4.3.5 and can be found on Trolltech's website: ftp://ftp.trolltech.no/qt/source/ (get package qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5.tar.gz). The distributions I use/have used are Fedora 10 and 11, Ubuntu, and OpenSUSE. OF worked just fine on my older Fedora 9 as well, but never tried F7. If you're really stuck I suggest you install ParaView and use foamToVTK.
