Problem using paraFoam to view cavityGrade mesh file
 
Hi,

I am having difficulty running paraFoam to view the mesh file for the cavityGrade case available in the openFoam tutorial. I get the following error message when I execute the command "paraFoam" within the case directory.

Please note that I am using OpenFoam 1.6 for lunix 32 bit platform in Ubuntu 9.04.

If you have a solution, please let me know.

Thanks.

Found Solution
 
Hi,

The problem was that I did not run blockMesh first, then paraFoam.

Thanks for viewing my post
