Dear all,

I have installed OpenFoam successfuly in my computer with Intel® Xeon® 64-bit dual and quad-core processors and run icoFoam example. However, I still has some problem with pre and post processing software, like FoamX and paraFoam. I am wondering
whether you can give a quick diagnose.

Here is the error message I got from FoamX: "244:
/home/qtian/OpenFOAM/linux64/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/java: not found". But if I
go the folder, the file name "java" is right there.

Using jar
/home/qtian/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/preProcessing/FoamX/l ib/FoamX.jar
Using jar
/home/qtian/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/preProcessing/FoamX/l ib/jlfgr-1_0.jar

/home/qtian/OpenFOAM/linux64/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin/java: not found
runFoamXHB : cleanup
runFoamXHB: Killing name server nsd(pid 31879).

qtian@AUR3:~$ cd /home/qtian/OpenFOAM/linux64/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin

appletviewer HtmlConverter jar java javadoc javap jdb kinit ktab orbd rmic rmiregistry servertool
extcheck idlj jarsigner javac javah java-rmi.cgi keytool klist native2ascii policytool rmid serialver tnameserv

Here is the error message I got from paraFoam:

qtian@AUR3:~/OpenFOAM/qtian-1.4.1/run/tutorials/icoFoam$ paraFoam . cavity
error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

I found the paraview-real folder but can not access it. I also modified the access permission to the folder, but no help. I really don't know what cause the problem and why it can not find the
files. Can anyone give me a hand?

Thanks for your help.
