Has anyone tried it yet?

Xwang commented on 2016-12-04 00:47

I'm unable to solve this issue.
I'm going to try to use this installation method:
If it works without all these problems I'll disown this package.

Unfortunately paraFoam is not working.

Maybe yes.
Yesterday I was looking at the paraview file in /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x/etc/ and the alternative one in the /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x/etc/

As far as I've understood by using the foamEtcFile -all -list command which gives this result

openfoam looks at these directory for configuration files.
So maybe we should create a correct paraview configuration file with the path of the installed binary.

Can you please try to see what change if the ParaView_DIR environment is set to match the installed paravie binary location (I'm unable to test until next weekend but if you find something useful, I should be able to update the PKGBUILD)?

Is there an environment variable missing?

Xwang commented on 2016-10-25 17:35

git has not been updated to 4.1 yet.
If it has been, please post a comment with the link before flagging (I wasn't able to find it) this package as out of date so that I can update the PKGBUILD.
Thank you!

I replaced the parmetis dependency with suitesparse which contains metis and causes a conflict with it. Building and installation worked, is there any disadvantage over using parmetis?

Yes. I followed your instruction and now icoFoam and pisoFoam worked but when I type paraFoam in the terminal I get this error

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders

I tried to follow these instructions but still get error
ERROR: ParaView not found in /opt/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-4.x/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-5.0.1

How can I fix it?
Thank you in advance

Xwang commented on 2016-09-04 10:58

Have you executed these commands:

export FOAM_INST_DIR=/opt/OpenFOAM
alias ofoam="source ${FOAM_INST_DIR}/OpenFOAM-4.x/etc/bashrc"

in your terminal before running icoFoam?

PS ThirdParty is empty because these programs are installed via their archlinux packages
