Hey guys,


i got a problem with Paraview. I built OF v1806 from source using this guide and everything seemed to workout just fine, except ./makeParaview stops compiling with
Code:
CMake Error at VTK/CMake/vtkQt.cmake:6 (message):
  Expected value for VTK_QT_VERSION is '5'
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  VTK/GUISupport/Qt/CMakeLists.txt:1 (include)
.


"foamInstallationTest" gave me a go so i run the given example pitzDaily. If i run the command "paraFoam" i only get is this:
Code:
ERROR: ParaView reader module library (PVFoamReader) does not exist
Please build the reader module before continuing:

    cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
    ./Allwclean
    ./Allwmake

Using the native VTK/OpenFOAM reader instead
Created temporary 'pitzDaily.foam'
/home/hgl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1806/bin/paraFoam: 319: /home/hgl/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v1806/bin/paraFoam: paraview: not found
i ran all the stated commands but the errors still occur. Any ideas how to fix this?

You will need to read a bit further on the same page and see where it mentions the file

$WM_PROJECT_DIR/ThirdParty-v1806/BUILD.md


which should actually be $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/ThirdParty-v1806/BUILD.md


(this file https://develop.openfoam.com/Develop...aster/BUILD.md)



There are many more build details there, where it will also mention that you need Qt5 for ParaView-5.5.x and some more comments. It is obviously not completely exhaustive, but should help.

Probably your paraView never compiled (and the error msg points at a missing Qt installation). A dummy way to check is to look in the platform directory and see if these directories are there. I.e. go to /ThirdParty-v1806/platforms/linuxsomething/ and make sure there is ParaView-5.5.x and also check for qt-#.#.#

Okay so I installed Qt 5.11.0 and Cmake 3.10.3 and now the error occurs at 91% of the installation. I am using ./makeParaView -qt-5.11.0 to build, otherwise i still get the same error as state in the first post. The error i am now getting is as follows

Perhaps try with qt-5.9.3 - it is an LTS version that I believe the ParaView developers are using. Maybe something odd changed with qt-5.11, you never really know.

okay so i now could install paraview using qt 5.9.5, which should also be LTS. (by the way, is there a difference between "qt-everywhere-src-VER" and "qt-everywhere-opensource-src-VER"?)
installing paraview worked just fine, but if i execute paraFoam the "missing PVFoamReader"-error pops up. Paraview opens up anyway but the fonts (and so any text) is missing. Not suitable for working, i would like to solve that



executing the advised commands (cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
./Allwclean
./Allwmake) works until some error during ./Allwmake state below.
Code:
CMake Error at /home/hgl/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-v1806/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-5.5.2/lib/cmake/paraview-5.5/ParaViewQt.cmake:71 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindQt5.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
  asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5", but
  CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5" (requested
  version 5.6) with any of the following names:

    Qt5Config.cmake
    qt5-config.cmake



Any Ideas what went wrong and how to solve?

okay i downloaded the fonts from https://dejavu-fonts.github.io/ and extracted them into the directory. The

Please build the reader module before continuing:

    cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders
    ./Allwclean

Using the native VTK/OpenFOAM reader instead
still orrcurs. Do I need the PVFoamReader?


Thanks in advance.

I myself struggle with building paraView which fails at 14% of installation. I wonder why such a obvious thing should be that problematic...


[Moderator note: Below is the post that was alone in another thread regarding this same issue.]


Dear all,


I was trying to build paraView on Ubuntu 16.04 but got the following error:
.
.
.

[ 14%] Linking CXX shared library ../../../lib/libvtkCommonCore-pv5.5.so
[ 14%] Built target vtkCommonCore
Makefile:149: recipe for target 'all' failed

412216inputs+495472outputs (1011major+17784156minor)pagefaults 0swaps


---
I followed the steps as instructed in BUILD.md.
First I built Qt by running ./makeQt 5.9.3 and then ./makeParaView -qt-5.9.3 5.5.2


Any help is appreciated.

I suppose!
Here's what I did:


1. downloading qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.9.3 and unpacking it in the thirdparty directory
2. bulding qt (./makeQt 5.9.3)
3. downloading cmake-3.5.2 and unpacking in the thirdparty directory
4. building cmake (./makeCmake cmake-3.5.2)
5. building paraView (./makeParaView -qt-5.9.3 5.5.2)

Hi Arash,

what system are you compiling on?
The qt version is system version (if so, which version) or you have installed 5.9.3 (this is the one you want really to compile). and which version of cmake you have?

My experience with compilation is, if the system versions of the dev libs are old, I follow the BUILD.md and things starts to work. You should also inspect the log from the paraview compilation. It's hard to give specific advise without detailed information.

Thanks Matej for your suggestion. The OS was Ubuntu 16 - 32bit and you are right I also think the error could be because of the platform. I also had it run under VM which could also cause instability. Anyway I switched to OF 5.0 and Ubuntu 18 (64bit) and it works fine.

well if you do not need all the perks of 1806 it is a way how to go but not really a solution. Which version of paraview is used in version 5? Is it the 5.5 or 5.4 or other?

Especially on Ubuntu 64bit there is no problem to compile openfoam and paraview. You just have to follow all the pre-requisites. I can imagine you have to be careful with 32bit version, but why you need 32 bits?

On virtual machines, the trouble is typically the inconsistency of OpenGL which is not accessing the OpenGL of your graphics but is using software rendering only. Then this little environmental variable settings might help (this is more as a reference to other users):


>> export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.2

which will make system pretend the 3.2 GL version to make you paraview started correctly.

Happy foaming

Many thanks. I learned from your comment.
Unfortunately, I erased everything after it didn't work, so I am not sure about the versions. It was the latest version from openfoam.com (OF V1806) though. As you said, this experience may be helpful to someone.

Hi,

I was asking about the Paraview version of OpenFOAM-v5. And it is Paraview 5.4
Which explains many things. Paraview 5.4 and 5.5.2 compilations are different.
For example the 5.5.2 insist on GL 2, it needs to be compiled with qt5 and few other differences. But it is worth it. Anyways, message for others, or for you, if you want to try over the weekend: OpenFOAM 1806 and paraview 5.5.2 compiles smoothly on Ubuntu 64 bits. And the extra modelling capabilities of 1806 and Catalyst from Paraview are worth the try.

Hi Lukas,
your error message regarding the Qt5 missing links to files instructs you quite clearly what to do: you have to set env. variable Qt5_DIR to point to your Qt5 libs place. E.g:

export Qt5_DIR=$WM_THIRDPARTY_DIR/platforms/linux64Gcc/lib/cmake/Qt5

it was in my case, as I was compiling the qt5 libs in Thirdparty dir.


hope this helps

Hey matjefor,


thanks for this hint. So i searched and found the missing files and executed this command:
Code:
export Qt5_DIR=$WM_THIRDPARTY_DIR/platforms/linux64Gcc/qt-5.9.5/lib/cmake/Qt5
. Hiting ./Allwclean and ./Allwmake the same error still occurs. Any Idea what i did wrong?

And if you

ls $Qt5_DIR

it will list the *.cmake files mentioned in the compilation error message?
If not the path is wrong and then try to search in platforms for the location
of these files.
Was the compilation of qt5 smooth? No errors ?

I did not run into this problem as it worked for me, so I do not know where else it could be.

I don't know if this is related, but did you try instead to adjust the ParaView_QT value inside of the etc/config.sh/paraview file? (and refresh your environment).



This should set both the Qt_DIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.


BTW: you do not need to waste time with an Allwclean in between. Just make sure that you have activated your new settings before building the second (or third) time.

Hi, foamers!

It's been a while since i last posted in these forums. Anyway i struggled with the ThirdyParty installation within openSUSE and i thought i could share my solution here.

The problem appears when we try to:
Code:
./Allwmake
inside the $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR

Basically i got qt and vtk errors. They don't come with the thirdparty tar file. I had to download both:

Qt-5.9.3 (qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.9.3.tar.xz) @ https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/5.9/5.9.3/single/
VTK 8.1.1 (VTK-8.1.1.tar.gz) @ https://www.vtk.org/download/

I unpacked both to $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR

then i ran :
Code:
./makeQt 5.9.3
and installed it

Now, i don't recall if i tried to run

Code:
 ./makeVTK 8.1.1
and it didn't work. You could try this before doing what i did. I'm sorry but i tried so many things that i can't be precise right now.

if it doens't work, you can do what i did: i jumped into the script:
Code:
gedit makeVTK
and changed the line:
Code:
VTK_VERSION="$vtk_version"
to
Code:
VTK_VERSION=8.1.1
then i ran the script

Code:
./makeVTK
next, i don't know whether it made any difference, but i went to

https://software.opensuse.org/package/Mesa and installed the Mesa package too. I did it with the automatic install which comes from the source mirror.
Finally i was able to type:
Code:
./makeParaview
and compile it.

Wish this was as ez as ubuntu's.

Anyway, hope this helps some1


l8r!
