Error - running paraFoam
Hi All,

I recently installed ubuntu 15.10 and OpenFOAM+ following the directions given on the OPenFOAM (Binary Installation) web page. Everything worked out until I reached at the following instructions:

mkdir -p $FOAM_RUN
cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity .
cd cavity

I was able to run all above commands except paraFoam. This command brings the paraView graphical screen but does not show any result or geometry. When I checked on terminal I am receiving error message as:

libGL error: failed to open drm device: NO such file or directory
libGL error: failed to load driver: i915

I need help to resolve this error. I am window user and does not have expertise in using Linux/Unix type environment.

Thanks in advance

I did nothing, but when I turned on machine next day it worked out. Try to reboot machine, it might work.
