Dear all,

I'm fighting with ParaView wiki in order to install it from source... I have Ubuntu 15.10 and want to install ParaView 3.12, so I need to compile it from source...

This is the wiki I'm following:

http://www.paraview.org/Wiki/index.p...ll&oldid=46445

I can arrive without problems to "configure ParaView with cmake" but then it make no sense anymore for me...It is told this:

"Use ccmake (Curses CMake GUI) from the CMake installed location. CCMake is a Curses based GUI for CMake. To run it go to the build directory and specify as an argument the src directory."

What does this mean? There is some command after this few lines but they call a folder I haven't created...

I really don't know what to do...Can please someone help me?

Hi Jack

It is indeed a very tedious and time consuming task to install paraview from source. I would suggest that you install it from the debian packages available at the OpenFoam website's download page

sudo dpkg -i <packageName.deb>

can be used to install debian packages on any linux platform. You do not need to install it from source.

I installed both OpenFoam and paraview using these packages, and I am using Linux Mint 17.2

I also tried to follow the instructions on OF site for compiling version 2.2.1 (the one I use) and for the related third party (ParaView 3.12) but I have this error...

Code:
-- Configuring development install...
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

    Set environment variables:

        export PATH=$ParaView_DIR/bin:$PATH
        export PV_PLUGIN_PATH=$FOAM_LIBBIN/paraview-3.12
    ---

Done
Do you have any suggestions? Where can I find the packages you mentioned?

You can go to the download for ubuntu page for any Openfoam version and it will have the links for the packages down in the page. Hope this helps.

It is much much faster than installing from source, took me less than a minute
