Default Plot over line fails in ParaView

Hi together,

I'm struggling with a rather simple thing, as is presume.. When I try to plot a line graph (Filter "Plot Over Line") instead of seeing a plot on the right hand side of the ParaView window, I simply get a black window. A picture showing this with the cavity tutorial case is attached below. I tried it on many cases without any success.

Then I thought it might be connected with my OpenFoam/ ParaView installation. So I removed the previous installed (precompiled) version and downloaded and compiled the source packages. (OpenFoam 2.1.1 with ParaView 3.12.0 on Ubuntu 12.04)

This didn't do the trick.. The only thing I can still think of is an error message I repeatedly get when starting ParaView (this is not new, had it with the precompiled version and now with the manually compiled source packages):
QVariantMap DBusMenuExporterDBus::getProperties(int, const QStringList&) const: Condition failed: action
I remember reading that this is a known "bug/ incompatibility" and that the functionality of ParaView wouldn't be compromised. Moreover, this is the first time I failed generating output with ParaView. So maybe this still got nothing to do with my problem afterall.

Maybe one of you had the same problem before and can tell me what to do.. Maybe I am just missing something obvious.

Thanks in advance.

Hi again,

I would like to push this thread since I did not find a solution to the problem yet.

Just send me the case file and I will try it in my version.

Hi and thanks for your reply.

As i wrote in my first comment, this always happens, regardless if it is an own case or a tutorial case.

I now think that this could be due to a malfunctioning graphics driver. Unfortunately I am not very familiar on how to fix such a problem under Ubuntu, so I will have to deal with it for now. If I find a solution, I will post it here in the case someone else comes across this problem.

I'm also having the same problem you've mentioned. A black window appearing instead of a plot. See the attached photo.

I've worked through the OpenFoam cavity case successfully until this point where the plot over line filter is required. I can't seem to get it to work. I've tried to run the filter as follows:
-cavity.OpenFoam ->plot over line
-cavity.OpenFoam-> slice->plot over line
-cavity.OpenFoam-> slice ->call centres->plot over line
-cavity.OpenFoam-> slice ->call centres-> glyph->plot over line
but none of the procedures work.
