In the directory where you are trying to run the kivaToFoam command, there should be a file called "itape17". The code says it is not there.

The file "itape17" is in the directory: /home/ervin/OpenFOAM/ervin-1.0.2/run/tutorials/engineFoam/kivaTest.
Should it be elsewhere?

Not that hard:

1) cd /home/ervin/OpenFOAM/ervin-1.0.2/run/tutorials/engineFoam/kivaTest

2) kivaToFoam /home/ervin/OpenFOAM/ervin-1.0.2/run/tutorials/engineFoam kivaTest -file itape17 -version kiva3v

What does it say now?

Unless your version of OpenFOAM-1.0.2 is different from mine, there is no "itape17" file in the specified tutorial directory. There is however an "otape17" file.

Thank you, both.

1) With changing the root from a terminal, to kivaTest directory, it works. The "otape17" file is actually in this directory.

2) The file itape17 was there because I have put it there. (my mistake)

3) I didn't find a way of changing the root to kivaTest directory from the FoamX GUI, though.

otape17 is a arbitrary file name for the Kiva-3V which will be imported into the OF case.

The file itape17 is the mesh in Kiva format.
It is made of:
1 line of description
1 line with ncells nverts nregions

<nverts> lines with coordinates and something else:
vertex_index (i4), x, y, z, vertex_flag (fv), idface

<nverts> lines with connettivity and something else:
i1tab, i3tab, i4, i8tab, f, bcl, bcf, bcb, idreg

a line with "mtables", a switch whose value is 0 or 1. If 0, Kiva builds the vectors imtab, jmtab and kmtab. If 1, then follow <nverts> lines with:
i4, imtab, jmtab, kmtab

and nothing more, I think.
Refer to a Kiva manual if you want more details!
