Hi, everyone,

for some reasons, I reinstall OF 1.3 in my laptop, and after that, i want to make sure nothing is wrong in my installation by running the cavity(icoFoam) case, but when postprocessing the results, paraview shuts down aotumatically and the error reads:

snail@snail-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/snail-1.3/run/tutorials$ paraFoam icoFoam cavity
| ========= | |
| \ / F ield | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox |
| \ / O peration | Version: 1.3 |
| \ / A nd | Web: |
| \/ M anipulation | |

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Could anyone give me some ideas?

Thanks in advance

The correct command is "paraFoam . cavity" assuming that you are already at the icoFoam root directory. Please please follow the user guide[1] exactly for once. If you wish to use the full path the syntax is:

paraFoam $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/icoFoam cavity
