Hi Dears,
I need some help in the installation. I am using virtual machine on my laptop vitalizing ubuntu 10.04L. I already followed the step of source pack on OpenFOAM page till Third party ./makeParaview
there I got stuck with:
"
did not find ParaView- in these directories:
WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR=/home/nansen/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0

abort build
"

I hope this is not because of vmware. everything else works quite well on that...

Thanks

Greetings sniperz and welcome to the forum!

It looks like you didn't unpack ThirdParty-2.1.0 in the right place. Run this command:
Code:
ls -l /home/nansen/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0
Does it show anything?

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
Thank you! and thanks for the reply
I tried with this but it seems the directory is there since it listed items followed:

I still don't quite understand why that problem occured.
Hope there will be some traces in the infomation above I gave.

thanks!

I use VMPlayer very often and it's probably not a VMWare issue.

Some very small detail might have slipped by you when you were following the steps. Try running the following command and then try to build ParaView once again:
Code:
wmSET
If it's still not working, let's check the following items:
  1. Is the OpenFOAM environment working? To check this run these commands (preferably one line at a time):
    Code:
    echo $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    ls -l $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
    echo $WM_PROJECT_DIR
    ls -l $WM_PROJECT_DIR
    which icoFoam
  2. Are the ParaView environment variables defined?
    Code:
    echo $ParaView_DIR
    ls -l $ParaView_DIR
    export | grep -i -e "paraview"
    The first two should show you the path for the ParaView target folder where it will be placed. If ParaView hasn't been built yet, then the folder doesn't exist yet...
    The third one will show you every single occurrence of the ParaView or paraview name, which could be useful, but not very important right now.
The first item is the most important. The second item should be fully working after ParaView is built... but I can't remember if it works before that.

Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you Bruno,
I have tried several times under your guidance.
however it is still not building.
I will show some detail which seems a bit suspected:


1.wmSET
nothing showed up after wmSET code.
then I tried again ./makeParaView, problem still exists.

---------
after inputting echo $ParaView_DIR, it came with a line with vacancy.nothing else.perhaps you can see from it.then I continued with the last code:
-------
nansen@nansen-desktop:~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0$ export | grep -i -e "paraview"
declare -x paraview
nansen@nansen-desktop:~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0$ ./makeParaView
did not find ParaView- in these directories:
WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR=/home/nansen/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0

abort build
---------


I get really confused...
this problem is found when I source the further problem when I tried to run paraFoam and it said ParaView reader module libraries do not exist. I rechecked everything and removed Thirdparty folder and tried to re-run Allwmake and reinstall Thirdparty.

Maybe I shall delete all of them and reinstall the whole OpenFOAM?

Thank you again for your help!

I forgot - the real test is this:
Code:
echo $ParaView_VERSION
My guess it won't output anything too. It should output:
Code:
3.12.0
Probably either one of two problems are occurring:
Another thing: you should have the ThirdParty folder ready to be used before compiling OpenFOAM. According to your latest description, it looks like you unpacked the ThirdParty package after OpenFOAM was built.

If all else fails, then yes... I suppose it's better to start from scratch. A tip: to speed up the build process, define "WM_NCOMPPROCS" (notice the 2 P letters) before running "Allwmake":
Code:
export WM_NCOMPPROCS=4
./Allwmake
4 is the number of process cores that are to be used for building OpenFOAM.

edit: When in doubt, start a new terminal window or tab, so you can have a clean shell environment.

Good luck!
Bruno

Hi Bruno,
Like you said, it is true that my bashrc file is damaged. I replace the whole content with the content online and it works! makeParaview worked:

nansen@nansen-desktop:~$ echo $ParaView_VERSION
3.12.0



but then I made the trouble shown at very beginning again...

nansen@nansen-desktop:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.0/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib$ paraFoam
/home/nansen/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.0/bin/paraFoam: 36: source: not found

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake


no matter how many times I do the Allwclean and Allwmake it just cannot run.
Then I went to the directory
cd /home/nansen/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.0/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/
I found neither Paraview file nor libPV3FoamReader_SM.so

and I read some of other threads a bit related. also I found some warning when I am using Synapic Package Manager:
openfoam210:
Depends: libptscotch-5.1 but it is not installable
Depends: libstdc++6 (>=4.5) but 4.4.3-4ubuntu5 is to be installed
Recommends: libptscotch-dev but it is not installable



sorry for listing so much information which may still be junk .
and thank you for your time!

Hold on, did ParaView get built properly?
Code:
which paraview
ls -l $ParaView_DIR
Did you follow the instructions for building ParaView and PV3FoamReader? http://openfoam.org/download/source.php#x6-34000

Hi Bruno,
here they are
nansen@nansen-desktop:~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0$ which paraview
nansen@nansen-desktop:~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0$ ls -l $ParaView_DIR
ls: cannot access /home/nansen/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.0/platforms/linux64Gcc/paraview-3.12.0: No such file or directory

I then run makeparaview again and made some log. I cannot tell if the result is ok. but it said Done.
Please have a look.
thanks!

Mmm... you're using Ubuntu 10.04... check this thread: paraview compilation error paraview-3.12.0 post #9

Oh, and the following message in bold near the end of the log indicates that things didn't work:

-- Configuring development install...
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Hi sniperz,

You're welcome! I'm glad I managed to help you! And if I didn't help the other users as well, I probably wouldn't have managed to help you solve this in a single day.

Happy foaming!
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

When I typed " paraFoam" in my user folder, I got error messanges as follows:

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake


Do you know why? I followed above commons to do step by step, however, I can not still get success. Please help me out.

Sandy

Hi Sandy,

Please state which OpenFOAM version you are using and in which Linux distribution.
Also knowing which specific instructions you followed can make it easier for me to help you!

Best regards,
Bruno
