Okay, I have finally made OpenFOAM working on my ubuntu 9.04, but still have problem with Paraview.
I believe I have updated QT with these packages, libqt4-core libqt4-dev libqt4-gui qt4-dev-tools. The QT version on my system is 4.5.2
Compiling Paraview encountered an error:
Code:
[  8%] Building CXX object Qt/Widgets/CMakeFiles/pqWidgets.dir/moc_pqColorChooserButton.cxx.o
QSqlDatabase: QSQLITE driver not loaded
QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
Cannot open data base file /home/yushi/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.1/platforms/build-linux64Gcc/paraview-3.8.0/Documentation/paraview.qch!
Building up file structure...
make[2]: *** [Documentation/paraview.qch] Error 255
make[1]: *** [Documentation/CMakeFiles/ParaViewOnlineHelp.dir/all] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
So, finally, the log file showed
Code:
QSqlDatabase: QSQLITE driver not loaded
QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
Cannot open data base file /home/yushi/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.1/platforms/build-linux64Gcc/paraview-3.8.0/Documentation/paraview.qch!
Building up file structure...
make[2]: *** [Documentation/paraview.qch] Error 255
make[1]: *** [Documentation/CMakeFiles/ParaViewOnlineHelp.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
Since the QSQLITE has been installed, I think the error is somewhat related to the path, but really don't know how to fix it. Does any one have suggestions? Thanks very much!

Greetings Yu Shi,

In Ubuntu 9.04, the following package isn't installed by default with those packages you listed:
Code:
libqt4-sql-sqlite
Additionally, after inspecting the packages for Qt4 in Synaptic, it looks to me that libqt4-gui isn't the best option... libqt4-assistant would be the best option. Nonetheless, libqt4-gui seems to be a transitional package, and it should refer to the proper packages!

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks, Bruno!
I tried to installed libqt4-sql-sqlite after I installed all aforementioned packages, but Ubuntu reminds me that my libqt4-sql-sqlite is already the latest version.

But I saw you described how to use pre-built paraview, I think I will try that also.
