Installed Salome 6.5 on ubuntu 12.04 but can only see blue box on screen

Posted by A.A. at November 21. 2012

Hi  I have installed Salome 6.5 on Ubuntu 12.04 by following the instructions from the README file.

When I typed "runSalome" a blue box with a upload bar appeared on the screen and nothing happened.

It looks like I cant start a session.

Does anybody know the problem?

Thanks in advance,

A.A.

hello

 

obviously "libglut.so.3" library is missing

that i a fundamental library for openGL this explains why you cannot see anything

it should lie in /usr/lib64

you have to install the package "linglut3" from your distribution

Hi!

I could not open Salome 6.5.0.

To fix the problem, I put in a terminal: sudo apt-get install freeglut3

  Now it opens. Thanks Site http://fold.it/portal/node/988097

But the next problem arose: I open the tab Geometry and other tabs  Mesh, Post-Pro, I get the error: Failed to activate module Geometry

Who faced the problem, respond!

Thanks in advance!

Hi Yana,

I just reinstalled Salome on a Linux Mint 14 distribution and I had the same error message.

I installed it thanks to the Wizard, then launched the salome_appli_6.5.00/runAppli script, and this error appeared.

But this problem disappeared when I created my own "runSalome" script as below:

source salome_6.5.0/KERNEL_6.5.0/salome.sh

salome_6.5.0/KERNEL_6.5.0/bin/salome/runSalome

This is to adapt to your salome folder location.

Maybe this will help you?

Best regards,

William
