paraFoam not working in CFDEM setup

Submitted by jagan1mohan on Wed, 12/04/2019 - 05:54

Hello Team,

Greetings. I would like to bring to your notice that when we install OpenFOAM alone (using commands on OpenFoam webpage,, all the commands of paraFoam such as -block, -builtin, -case work perfectly fine.

However, when we install the CFDEM setup (as per, we have everything working, that is, OpenFOAM, LIGGGHTS and coupled OpenFOAM - LIGGGHTS but only the paraFoam does not work?

Can someone let me know how to fix this? When I issue paraFoam command, I get the following message.

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

It does not work even after issuing these commands and ends up into new error.

Can someone let me know how to fix this?

Thank you,
Jagan Mohan.
