Hi,
I'm currently trying to install openFoam 1.6 using these instructions:
http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kur...OwnLaptop.html
It all worked fine except the paraview installation, I installed it instead through sudo apt get is there a way to link paraview and paraFoam?

Regards

Adam Thurlow

Greetings Adam,

First detail: it is 1.6-ext, not simply 1.6! There is a very big difference

Second: the ParaView version that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 is very old. You can get the one from openfoam.org - http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php - namely the package "paraviewopenfoam3120" and then hack a bit on 1.6-ext:
  • Check if the "ParaView_DIR" variable is working:
    Code:
    echo $ParaView_DIR
    If this shows anything, then run:
    Code:
    rm -r $ParaView_DIR
    ln -s /opt/paraviewopenfoam3120 $ParaView_DIR
  • Edit the file "OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/bin/paraFoam" and change all occurrences of ".OpenFOAM" to ".foam". Notice there is a dot symbol after the first quote
And that should be it and reaaaady to go! At least it should be, if you have properly installed the graphics drivers on your machine

Keep in mind that I haven't tested these instructions myself. This is basically an incomplete hack, since it only gets things half done. For several more detailed instructions, check my signature link

Best regards,
Bruno
