frank178 is on a distinguished road

I've tried to view the mesh of the cavity example but got following error:

sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM> paraFoam $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/icoFoam cavity
# Error or warning: ERROR: In ../../../../../paraview-2.2.0/Utilities/VTKClientServer/vtkClientServerInterpret er.cxx, line 866
vtkClientServerInterpreter (0x52d8a0): Cannot find module "". The following paths were searched:

ERROR: In ../../../../../paraview-2.2.0/GUI/Client/vtkPVXMLPackageParser.cxx, line 677
vtkPVXMLPackageParser (0xf54600): Error loading Library component PVFoamReader

ErrorMessage end
/home/sleur/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/bin/paraFoam: line 57: 25549 Speicherzugriffsfehler paraview paraFoam.pvs

I cant find this location: ../../../../../paraview-2.2.0/Utilities/VTKClientServer/vtkClientServerInterpret er.cxx

Starting ParaView is now problem. Trying to update PVfoamreader the follwing message:

sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVFoamRe ader> ./Allwmake
make: Für das Ziel »allFiles« ist nichts zu tun.
make: »lnInclude/uptodate« ist bereits aktualisiert.
make: »Make/linuxGcc4Opt/dependencies« ist bereits aktualisiert.
`/home/sleur/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/lib/linuxGcc4Opt/' is up to date.
./Allwmake: line 2: cmake: command not found
make: *** Keine Targets angegeben und keine »make«-Steuerdatei gefunden. Schluss.
sleur@Wb:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVFoamRe ader>

Any ideas or hints?

Thanks a lot!

hjasak will become famous soon enough is the OpenFOAM plugin for paraview. For me, it lives in: /home/coyote/hjasak/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/lib/linuxI32Opt/

and yours should be somewhere similar. Looks to me as if the plugin is not built.

Don't understand the message about cmake - you only need that to rebuild the paraview (are you compiling from sources?). In that case, there's quite a lot of work to do.

1) build paraview from scratch with shared libraries on. Keep the build directory (builds out of source, e.g.
You need cmake-2.0.6 or better, download from the web and build it
tar xvzf paraview-blah-blah
mkdir paraview-blah-blah-obj
cd paraview-blah-blah-obj
cmake -i ../paraview-blah-blah
2) make sure it runs on its own
3) try builiding paraFoam stuff by hand and pay attention to the errors - it is likely that some bits will be missing in the paraview installation.

Good luck,
