I'd like to add one more file that needs to be copied. After a git pull today, compilation of the reader failed with the following message


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:13 (INCLUDE):
  include could not find load file:


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:42 (QT4_WRAP_CPP):
  Unknown CMake command "QT4_WRAP_CPP".

Coping the missing file like Daniels post above resolved the issue.


cp $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR/ParaView-3.14.1/ParaViewUse.cmake  $ParaView_DIR/lib/paraview-3.14/CMake/.

Hi There,

I am just wondering... what should be modified in the ParaView 3.14.1 original configuration files to point to this development path?

Any idea? I have been trying for hours, but not luck....

Of course, just copying those files should works (indeed it does), but it would be nice to have a clean, nice and neat OF+PV compilation, without manually altering anything...

Hi There,

I don't know to much about the PV3FoamReader nor the internal workings of paraview but I suspect that the modification should be done in the OpenFOAM module rather than paraview it self.

Maybe you can find something if you dive in to how the PV3FoamReader is built.

Have a look in

Keep us posted and good luck!
