Hello everybody, sorry that my first thread is a problem! I was trying to convert a simple geometry (T-shape pipe, two inlet and one outlet) mesh from Salome 7.3.0 to openfoam 2.3.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 and I ran into this error. This is my first time using both softwares so I am suspecting installation issues. I have been looking in Google using different keywards relating to the error but no luck. One more info could be relevant is that I am running this on mac 64 bit processor. I used ideasunvtofoam command and it gave me this message:

My question is just where do you think the poblem lies exactly. When I ran tutorials of Openfoam I did not encounter any problem. Yet when I tried to convert the mesh from Salome I get this.
Thank you in Advance
