I am having the same problem with the missing I am running RedHat Enterprise, and I have followed the instructions in the I did have to modify VTK_USE_RPATH:BOOL=OFF, and then I was successful in building ParaView 3.3 and the OpenFOAM reader.

I am using:
qmake -version
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.1 in /k/kjmaki/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/Trolltech/Qt-4.3.1/lib

Has anyone else had the problem with the missing

Dear Kevin,

I had the same problem than Nishant Singh just using paraFoam on 64bit ubuntu. I just do the following stuff to clear the problem today :

- I add the /usr/lib/qt4 path in the PATH environnement. (like I see on this post)

- I then re-install qt4 (core, gui and sql libs) the Ubuntu way. (paraFoam was asking the qt4-sql lib then).

And now, it's working !

Thanks to all !!!

dear all!!

i run the multiRegionHeater tutorial case and want to display the results with paraView 3.3.0 dev. in this case one has to import different regions of the computational domain from a VTK folder (left/rightSolid, heater, top/bottomAir). when opening the case with paraFoam i can import all the regions but cannot display any quantity. the inspector/properties menu of the different regions is empty (blank). For multiRegionHeater.OpenFOAM no physical quantity can be chosen on "Vol Field Status" except for time instance 0 (but even here nothing can be displayed).

does anybody have an idea whats going wrong? appreciate any comment!

thx in advance!

hello, i have the same problem with Openfoam 1.5. if i call paraFoam, the GUI comes, but in the tutorial the suffix of data are .foam, mine are .OPENFOAM, so the paraFoam can not read the files, then i changed in GUI Openfoam data, the gui crashed out, with the error

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_create
Aborted (core dumped)

Then i compiled the paraview and PV3FoamReader, after that, there will be an error.

103 Paraview cant be found!

has somebody also this error?
How can i resolve it?

Hi Louis,
I have a similar problem with paraview. My computer totally freezes. Did you figure out what the problem was?
