 funkyPythonPostproc.C:41:10: fatal error: pythonInterpreterWrapper.H: No such file or directory
 #include "pythonInterpreterWrapper.H"
compilation terminated.
make: *** [/vortexfs1/home/jinshichen/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1812/wmake/rules/General/transform:35: Make/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/funkyPythonPostproc.o] Error 1
wmake funkySetLagrangianField
wmake funkyWarpMesh
wmake makeAxialMesh
wmake writeBoundarySubfields
It seems to tell me that I am missing a python interpreterWrapper file. Does anyone know how to solve it? Thanks a lot!


Hi Jinshi!

If that is the only error then I'd say you don't have a problem unless you want to play with the Python-integration (very few people do)

It is possible that the compilation of the library failed because there are no development headers for python installed (some systems don't install them as they are not strictly necessary).

I'll adapt the compilation process so that there is no attempt to compiel that utility if the necessary headers are missing

Note: I don't use "Friend"-feature on this forum out of principle. Ah. And by the way: I'm not on Facebook either. So don't be offended if I don't accept your invitation/friend request

I am not fully sure of the solution. But since you are using a recent release, you can try using the following command:

HTML Code:
hg update develop
