hippiekyle is on a distinguished road
So, I've finally gotten everything installed. Lots of errors along the way. I do the foamInstallationTest and it says all good. When I try to compile the paraView plugins, I get an error. Straight from the website, I typed:

cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers

./Allwclean works fine. ./Allwmake gives me this error:

ERROR: ParaView not found in /$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.1/platforms/linux64Gcc/paraview-3.12.0

This looks like an easy fix to me, but I'm clueless. There was an error the first time I ran ./Allwmake from the top level directory (installing openfoam). I fixed the error and ran it again. Did "ParaView" not get copied into that directory for some reason? Should I try running ./Allwmake again? Do I need to do something in the ThirdParty directory?


EDIT: I found the error when making paraview. It's problems with cmake. suggestions?

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
used as include directory in directory /$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.1/ParaView-3.12.0/VTK/GUISupport/Qt
used as include directory in directory /$HOME/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.1/ParaView-3.12.0/VTK/GUISupport/Qt

just found the same problem:

Will try their solution.

Greetings Kyle,

Which Linux Distribution you are using and which specific installation instructions are you following?

Or have you already solved this problem? Because if you've already solved the problem, please share the solution you've found.

Best regards,
