I am trying to install OpenFOAM-3.0.x from the git repo in Ubunto 14.

The OpenFOAM installation seemed to proceed fine, but when I ran makeParaview4, I got the error:

Installation complete for paraview-4.4.0
Set environment variables:

export ParaView_DIR=/home/rc/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-3.0.x/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-4.4.0
export PATH=$ParaView_DIR/bin:$PATH
export PV_PLUGIN_PATH=$FOAM_LIBBIN/paraview-4.4
---

Done
I have xmlpatterns and qhelpgenerator in /usr/bin. Is there a way to change where they are searched for, or should I create a soft link to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qhelpgenerator, etc?

A perhaps unrelated problem is that I was able to run blockMesh and icoFoam in the cavity examples subdirectory, but when I tried to run paraFoam I get the error:

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV4Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake
However, on doing this I get the error:

I would appreciate any suggestions to resolve these problems.

Quick answer: Detailed instructions are available here: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_14.04

The problem you're seeing is that Qt5 is being used by default. In step #9 you will see the fix for the problem:
Code:
export QT_SELECT=qt4

Thanks. I thought I was following the instructions on the wiki earlier, but I may have been looking at those for a different version of openFOAM.
