Default rhoSimpleFoam and Lagrangian particle tracking

Dear Foamers,

currently I want to simulate a case similar to the tutorial case /lagrangian/MPPICFoam/cyclone/.
But my case is Steady-state, so I have an outlet on the lower bottom of the cyclone. Therefore a transient simulation is not needed in my opinion, but the MPPICFoam- solver is a transient solver and it would be computational expensive to run it on that steady-state case.
I've performed a first step simulation with rhoSimpleFoam, as the fluid is air (compressible) with water droplets as the lagrangian component.

Now I'm trying to build a steady state solver with Lagrangian particle tracking (rhoSimpleLPTFoam) and initiate it with 'set fields' from the first step.

Unfortunately I continously get errors while compiling the solver. Also I've searched the forum several hours and could check, that everything is working fine for my openfoam5 environment according to the following post:

erros when compiling simpleSRFFoam

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and installed it as described on for the ubuntu packages.

Attached to this post I send you my changed files and the error messages, maybe someone of you can help me to proceed.

Many thanks and have a nice weekend,
