Default gmsh 2.6.0 conversion to OpenFoam 160

rosswin is on a distinguished road

I am quite new to using CFD packages and OpenFoam. I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and I have a working OpenFoam 160 and 211 and I am running waves2Foam in OpenFoam 160.

I have created a mesh in gmsh 2.6.0. It is a 3D mesh but then is converted to a 2D mesh in OpenFoam but making the front and back patches empty.

I have used the command gmshToFoam in OpenFoam 211 and it has meshed the problem on but then when I run waveFoam on it in OpenFoam 160 it doesn't work. I haven't been able to set up waveFoam to work in OpenFoam 211.

As such I have tried to use gmshToFoam in OpenFoam 160 and have gotten the following error:

Found $MeshFormat tag; assuming version 2 file format.
Starting to read physical names at line 5
Physical names:8

wrong token type - expected string found on line 0 the label 1

file: IStringStream.sourceFile at line 0.

    From function operator>>(Istream&, string&)
    in file primitives/strings/string/stringIO.C at line 57.

FOAM exiting
Please could you advise me on how to fix this?

I thought that maybe using an older version of gmsh that would be compatible with OpenFoam 160 would work, but I have been getting errors in making gmsh 2.1.x

Thank you very much for your time and effort.
