[31mQVariantMap DBusMenuExporterDBus::GetProperties(int, const QStringList&)[0m: Condition failed: action



Also this error message is displayed when paraview starts.

go to third part and compile paraview again
use ./Allwamke

Greetings to all!

Maysam, try removing this file: ~/.config/ParaView/ParaView3.8.0.ini
Then try running ParaView 3.8.0 again. If this doesn't work, then Nima is probably right about having to re-build ParaView. But the correct commands are:
Code:

cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
./makeParaView

Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you Nima and Bruno,

I have uninstalled Paraview and trying to install new version of Paraview.
Best regards,

I have the same problem. Removing the ~/.config/ParaView/ParaView3.8.0.ini did not help.

Did the re-installation of 3.8 solve your problem?

Thanks,

Mirko

Hi Mirko,

Mmm, have you tried removing "~/.config/ParaView/ParaView3.8.1.ini" instead?
You might also want to check what's inside the folder "~/.config/ParaView" and/or remove it completely, since there might be some other file that is somehow disturbing ParaView... although a bit odd that such a thing could happen.

By the way, which version/package of ParaView are you installing or have installed?

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi,
After reinstalling it, my problem was solved.
Maybe the way which Bruno told be easier so first try that.

Regards.

I am using 3.8.0.

Removing the ~/.config/ParaView folder fixed it. Thank you.

As I replied to Bruno, I solved the problem. But just for my info, did you
  • download a new binary, or
  • installed from source
Thanks,

Mirko

I am not sure but i think i installed it with Ubuntu Synaptic.

In case others are having this issue as well, I had the same problem. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and installed the OpenFoam 2.0.0. The installation originally installed ParaView 3.10.1 which I had to remove and install the ParaView 3.8.1-2ubuntu3 version which seems to have solved the problem. I tried reinstalling 3.10.1 and 3.8.1, but neither of those worked. If it stops working I will let you know.

Greetings Ryan and welcome to the forum!

Did you try removing the folder "~/.config/ParaView"? This has worked before for others, as indicated in the post #9.
If you did try this and it didn't work, I would like to know so I can investigate this issue further!

Best regards,
Bruno
