Whenever I select "View" from the menu bar, an "Output Messages" box opens with the following. I just close the box and continue working. ParaView seems to work perfectly well otherwise.

I am running ParaView under Ubuntu 3.12 with OpenFOAM 2.2.1.

Greetings gcengineer,

A few questions:
  1. Did you mean that you are using Ubuntu 13.04 or 12.04?
  2. Which exact instructions did you follow for installing OpenFOAM?
  3. Did you also install the ParaView version that Ubuntu itself provides?
Best regards,
Bruno

I'm having the same issue. Here is the output message:

[31mvoid DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Main Controls" under id 67
[31mvoid DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Selection Controls" under id 68

[31mvoid DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Active Variable Controls" under id 71

[31mvoid DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Macros Toolbars" under id 75

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 and I followed the instructions on OpenFOAM's page (I have installed OpenFOAM 2.2.1 and ParaView 3.12.0)

Regards

When ever I run a case in paraFoam, or simply open paraview and hover the mouse over the top 'view' menu an error box appears with the following:

"[31mvoid DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Main Controls" under id 69
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Selection Controls" under id 70
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "VCR Controls" under id 71
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Current Time Controls" under id 72
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Active Variable Controls" under id 73
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Representation Toolbar" under id 74
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Camera Controls" under id 75
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Center Axes Controls" under id 76
void DBusMenuExporterPrivate::addAction(QAction*, int): Already tracking action "Macros Toolbars" under id 77
"

This also appears in the terminal and stops further work from being input.

I have seen that this has been posted before and have tried some of the solutions for other people. Unfortunately they either did not work or I could not understand what was being asked of me.

I am extremely new to both OpenFoam/paraFoam as well as Linux as I have only started using it as my university requires it for use in a project.

I am not sure of what information is needed but I have ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bit running on a virtual machine VMplayer.
I installed openfoam 2.2.1 and parafoam 3.12.0 by copying and pasting the terminal commands on the openfoam website. I also installed paraview separately.

Sorry for the long winded post but I would really appreciate if anyone could help me out or even help me understand.

Thanks

These are the steps (after running a case in OpenFoam):

1 - run paraFoam
2 - click "View".
Then the message is shown in an "Output Messages" Window.

It seems to have no influence in the results. But, anyway, I would like to know what it means.

Thanks!
Best Regards

Greetings to all!

I've moved Jordan's post to this thread as well, since the error is identical.

I've got some news for everybody. This issue has been reported several times here on the forum. Some examples:
I did a bit more research and found this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ew/+bug/995949

So in essence: this is a common bug in Ubuntu.


The quickest solution to no longer have to be bothered by this kind of buggy warning messages, should be to do these steps as follows:
  1. Add the repository that has got the fixed ParaView 3.98 for Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10, by running:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gladky-anton/paraview
  2. Then update apt-get's cache and upgrade ParaView:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install paraview
  3. Then uninstall the ParaView 3.12.0 version that is provided for OpenFOAM:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove paraviewopenfoam3120
  4. Add an alias command to your "~/.bashrc" file:
    Code:
    alias paraFoam='paraFoam -builtin'
  5. Start a new terminal window and try running paraFoam from within your case folder.
Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks for the help bruno, I have run the above and it has worked I no longer get the error.

although one question,

Is this the exact same as paraFoam that is installed with openFoam or is it different?

As in the left hand properties window there is a slight difference,

Instead of a "Mesh Parts" selection box it is now called "Mesh Regions".

As well as the "Display" tab now being moved.

does this matter?

Regards

Jordan

Hi Jordan,

It's the built-in plug-in, not the official plug-in. It's different and has got some limitations, but also some great features.

Either way, it's quicker than rebuilding ParaView from source code, as explained in one of the threads I gave links to.

Best regards,
Bruno
