Hey guys,

I had to reinstall OF-1.6. I've tried testing the cavity case using FoamToVTK in Paraview. No mesh appears first, but when I then click on the mesh and start scrolling my mouse around the mesh flashes in appearance. When I remove the click it reverts to no mesh as previously.
Is it a case of reinstalling Paraview and trying the case again? Also how do I do reinstall it without removing OF.

I had a similar problem with my Ubuntu operation system.
It was due to 3D-desktop-effects. If you have something similar on your system activated try to switch it off.
