Im running the binaries provided at OpenFOAM's site on a Ubuntu box.
OpenFOAM works OK but when I try to run paraFoam on the interFoam/damBreakFine tutorial directory, i got these error messages:

$ paraFoam
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

ParaView error: InitializeTcl failed
Tk_Init error: this isn't a Tk applicationcouldn't connect to display ":0.0"


Im trying to run in on my localhost X.
DISPLAY enviroment variable is set to :0.0

Does anybody knows what is wrong?
Can anybody help me please?

This error usually appears when you run remotely through an ssh connection, and want to print on the localhost X server ... but it seems this is not the case here.

Try the following command on the localhost:
xhost +

This will enable everybody to print on your screen, so be carefull if you belong to an untrusted network.
