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.
************************************************** ******

ERROR: In /home/dm2/henry/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader/PV3FoamReader/vtkPV3FoamReader.cxx, line 189

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.

Hi,

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

Thanks for viewing my post
