Hello guys,
I've installed successfully openfoam5 (using this deb package found on this page) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

I've tried some tutorials and all seems to work correctly.
But when I wanted to check some results, I got this:
Code:
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
So I did:
Code:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
engine@power:/opt/openfoam5/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders$ ./Allwclean
wclean libso vtkPVblockMesh
wclean libso vtkPVFoam
engine@power:/opt/openfoam5/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders$ ./Allwmake
Allwmake applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
    ERROR: ParaView not found in /opt/paraviewopenfoam54
So, how could I solve?

I found something similar to my issue here, but it doesn't work for me

Quick answer: If you use apt-get to install "openfoam5", then run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install paraviewopenfoam54
If you forcefully installed the "openfoam5" deb package, then you must do the same for the "paraviewopenfoam54" deb package.

Hi wyldckat,

I've followed your suggestions for installing both softwares by "sudo apt-get install", and still not able to run paraFoam.

OpenFOAM works fine since I've been able to run "icoFoam -help" (standard check out command suggested everywhere)
ParaView can be run by launching the executable from within the directory where installed.
But, paraFoam not able to run due to environment variable not defined.

Message is:
>>> FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

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

Therefore, I try to build following the steps suggested. And, I get the following error message:
>>> Allwmake applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
>>> ./Allwmake : PV_PLUGIN_PATH not valid - it is unset

Any suggestion?

Thanks
C.

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!

Wyldckat, I found another thread where you suggested to check .bashrc file. I didn't comment out any lines, I just activated the appropriate environment. Now, paraFoam runs.

paraView reader module build problem

Regards!
