You don't need this. Are you trying to set the right environment variables? This is explained in this thread.

Well, thank you, but I'm just a PhD student playing around with it a bit .

Have you followed the method higher up in this thread? That should do the trick.

First, go to a convenient directory. In my case I make a directory containing all kinds of loose things, called "tmp" in my home dir). So, open up a terminal and
Code:
mkdir tmp && cd tmp
Now you're in your newly made tmp directory, get Qt-4.3.5
Code:
wget http://ftp3.ie.freebsd.org/pub/trolltech/pub/qt/source/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5.tar.gz
Then, extract it
Code:
tar xzf qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5.tar.gz
Go into the inflated qt directory
Code:
cd qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5.tar.gz
and configure Qt for building by
Code:
./configure
Then, make Qt by
Code:
make
or
Code:
gmake
Finally, become root and actually install Qt
Code:
su
Code:
make install
or
Code:
gmake install
(you need to be root (su=superuser) to have write permission in /usr/, which is what you need when installing).

To get your system and OF find Qt, add its path to $HOME/.bashrc by

Code:
gedit $HOME/.bashrc
and add the lines
Code:
PATH=/home/gijsbert/tmp/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.3.5/bin:$PATH
export PATH
Save $HOME/.bashrc and source it by
Code:
. $HOME/.bashrc
(don't forget the dot (".") at the beginning).

Hope this helps you on your way .

Hmm, ok, what do
Code:
which qmake
and
Code:
qmake --version
say?

PS Just to be sure, you did add the Qt path (as above in this thread), source command for OpenFOAM to $HOME/.bashrc and source the latter, right?

Hello
I am attempting to run OF on fedora 15 32 bits. I have built the sources as explained in the tutorial:
http://www.openfoam.com/download/source.php

but now, I have the same probleme as Rebel Ahmed, i.e:
when executing:
Code:
cd /home/ahmed/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6
./makeParaView
the reply is:
Code:
Error: cannot find qmake either at $QMAKE_PATH or in current $PATH
Qt4 is already installed and up to date ...

my bash do not reconize the "qmake" command but there is a "qmake-qt4" command

I saw in the "makeParaView" file that I could change the qmake path but I am unable to locate it ...

If someone would help me ...

THX

M.

I found the answer by my own:
in a terminal:
Code:
whereis qmake-qt4
answer:
Code:
/usr/bin/qmake-qt4
then I edited the makeParaView file and replaced
Code:
QMAKE_PATH=""
by
Code:
QMAKE_PATH="/usr/bin/qmake-qt4"
ran
Code:
./makeParaView
and that was ok ...


/!\ On Fedora it is VERY IMPORTANT to run this before building ParaView!!!
Code:
sed -i -e 's=ptrdiff_t=std::ptrdiff_t='  ParaView-3.10.1/VTK/Utilities/vtkmetaio/metaUtils.cxx
