Hello everybody,
I used to work with OpenFOAM in the past and now I am trying to install OpenFOAM v5 to make a fresh start with it. I am having a problem with paraFoam and I would be grateful if somebody can help me resolve it and be able to continue.

My linux distribution is Ubuntu 14.04

I followed the guidelines here:
https://openfoam.org/download/5-0-ubuntu/

The process goes well up until the "Getting started" section where a case of simpleFoam is to be run.

blockMesh and simpleFoam work well but paraFoam no. It gives the following message:

Code:
 ~/OpenFOAM/giorgos-5.0/run/pitzDaily paraFoam

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
./Allwclean
./Allwmake
When following the instructions ./Allwclean runs well but for ./Allwmake I get the following error.


Code:
/opt/openfoam5/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders ./Allwmake
Allwmake applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
wmake vtkPVblockMesh
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications’: Permission denied

make: *** No rule to make target `/opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders/vtkPVblockMesh/options'.  Stop.

wmake error: file '/opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders/vtkPVblockMesh/sourceFiles' could not be created in /opt/openfoam5/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders/vtkPVblockMesh
When doing:
Code:
echo $PV_PLUGIN_PATH
I get this:
Code:
/opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/paraview-5.4
but this:
Code:
 ls -l /opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/paraview-5.4
gives:
Code:
ls: cannot access /opt/openfoam5/platforms/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/lib/paraview-5.4: No such file or directory
Can anybody help me out with this issue?

Thanks a lot
Giorgos

I remembered I have encountered this issue.
First, I vaguely remembered that I have to install newer cmake, please install cmake3 package .
Second, after source the openfoam environment, you should issue these commands with root account.
