Hello,

I have been trying to install OpenFoam 2.4.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 for quite a while and I didn't manage to make it work. I have been using this guide (2.5 Ubuntu 16.04):
https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/I...u#Ubuntu_16.04

Everything goes perfectly until step 9. If i call the paraFoam function, I get the error message:

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV4Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake

If I call the paraview function, the 5.0.1 paraview pops up, but I still cannot open any OpenFoam file as the paraFoam function is not working properly.

I joined the log.makePV file as well as the terminal log during the installation.

Thanks in advance,
Nicolas

Quick answer: Many thanks for the detailed logs!
The problem was this:
Code:
...:~/OpenFOAM$ sed -i -e 's=//#define GLX_GLXEXT_LEGACY=#define GLX_GLXEXT_LEGACY=' \
>   ParaView-4.1.0/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL/vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx
sed: can't read ParaView-4.1.0/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL/vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx: No such file or directory
...:~/OpenFOAM$ cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/ParaView-4.1.0
The sed command failed, because you were in the wrong directory And I'm sorry about that, it's my fault. I failed to notice that I forgot to provide the missing step.
Please run the following commands:
Code:
cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR

sed -i -e 's=//#define GLX_GLXEXT_LEGACY=#define GLX_GLXEXT_LEGACY=' \
  ParaView-4.1.0/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL/vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx

./makeParaView4 -no-config -python -mpi -python-lib /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so.1.0 > log.makePV 2>&1
This should solve the problem. Then continue from step 9.4.
