Possible solution ParaView and PV3FoamReader?
Hello All,

I was having the exact same issue as mentioned at the top of the thread.
I am running Ubuntu 9.04
QMake 4.3.5
CMake 2.4-patch 6
gcc 4.3.1

I did some digging by going into the actual ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linuxGcc directory and directly running the make -d command as mentioned by another poster. This revealed the system was missing some sort of X11 strings header file "StringDefs.h" The point is, by issuing apt-get install xorg-dev, ALL of the problems compiling ParaView and PV3FoamReader were immediately solved.

I am not sure if this issue is explicitly documented somewhere, that this is a required dependancy of ParaView or OpenFoam? If so, I was not able to locate it.

Should this be added to some documentation for compiling ParaView?

I am not quite sure if this would help. But there is a thread on the compilation of paraview on this link :

Maybe you can take a look and see if it helps.
