Hi there

I have just installed OpenFOAM using Docker on Ubuntu. When tried to run paraFoam I got this error:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
in "".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1706/bin/paraFoam: line 305: 929 Aborted (core dumped) paraview


Any help or suggestion to resolve this error is highly appreciated.

Hi

Linux
Please set this environment variable and it will work in Linux platforms

export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=$WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/platforms/linux64Gcc/qt-5.9.0/plugins


For Mac,
we donot support , paraview/paraFoam in Mac version . Please install native binaries from
paraview.org for your system .

https://www.paraview.org/download/

Regards
Pawan
