Hello Foamers
I have installed openFOAM 1.6 on a machine running with ubuntu 9.10 with no compilation problems. As an example, when the cavity problem was run, I was able to see the progress of the solution till it ended successfully.
Unfortunately, when I came to view the results, nothing appeared in paraview when parafoam was executed . I was able to see the meshed domain (before calling the solver icofoam) but not the results. The version of paraview used is 3.6.1. I used vtk files to load them into paraview and they failed due the following error:

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } ERROR: In /home/dm2/henry/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/paraview-3.6.1/VTK/IO/vtkXMLParser.cxx, line 484

Any idea how to solve this problem with paraview?
