Dear all,

I am facing a problem with viewing meshes in ParaView. I am using openFoam 2.4.0 installed on an Ubuntu 14.04.3 Virtual machine (VirtualBox) hosted by windows 7.
After blocking and checking the mesh. When I start paraFoam within the the project directory ParaView starts, but the terminal shows me the following error:

pci id for fd 16: 80ee:beef, driver (null)
libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo

In ParaView it includes the mesh in the pipeline, but no mesh geometry is shown in ParaView window. It seems like a problem related to the virtual graphic drivers. I checked if everything related to virtual additions, it is installed and updated but this didn't resolve the issue.

Hi Weam,
Did you install the Virtualbox guest additions? See chapter 4 of the Virtualbox manual. The guest additions work like additional drivers for the virtual machine. If one of the drivers is missing, it may cause problems.
Best Regards,
Paulo
