Re: Fw: Re: hello? -installing paraview?


ok, problem circumvented, a friend showed me how to get it from the linux repository..

I also tried to implement the "second solution" that was proposed, involving theora, with my friends help, and failed.  downloading several packages, I got a video that to all appearances was only 1 frame long..

I will let you know if I still have questions :-D

salutations anton :-D

nice to
see ample evidence of friendly people out there :-D

question has evolved a bit, taking into consideration the posts of

let me start here:  there is another
conversation on this mailing list, conserning "how to do the
video".  in response to this conversation, vaclav added
some seemingly very helpful documentation to the users manual:

“I added a section on that in the


There are clearly two decent ways of
making video, “Periodic frame snapshot using SnapshotEngine
(see examples/bulldozer.py
for a full example):”, and using paraview.  I have not tried the
first yet, although I will, but tried to get a coppy of paraview,
assuming that the added effort would probably be worth it in the long

To make a long story short, I followed
the link, tracked down online how to install tar.gz files, and
promptly fell on my face.  I followed this tutorial:
whose instructions are echoed on other sites.  Their third
instruction in ./configure .  When I put this in, I get the error
message:  bash: ./configure: No such file or directory.  The folder
that was created when I followed the other steps only has bin and lib
folders, nowhere can I find files like configure, install, readme, or
make, though I might have missed them.

I am wondering what you make of this? 
My laptop says it is powered by amd turion 64x2, so I assume I got
the right distribution, the one for 64 bit, not 32..

thank's for the help, and i'll get back
to you with other questions as I run into the walls :)

I have just discovered yade, and am trying to do some simulations with

it.  I am of course encountering difficulty, and wondering if there is

anybody out there who might help me?  is this the right place to ask?
