I just finished compiling OpenFOAM with provided link below and it works well. But, I use original scotch source pack with less configure instead of scotch in aur. It's still working well without problems.

So what are the current issues with this package? I tried the install and it worked without errors.The paraFoam didn't work initially but after adding:
alias paraFoam='paraFoam -builtin'
to the /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-4.x/etc/bashrc file it works.

Any one have other issues? I might be in for maintaining this if no one else is.

If this package continues to be maintained, there is a fix required for the check of scotch version. Now this line assumes scotch is provided by a package called "scotch", but it could be provided by another package like "scotch-openmpi", in which case the PKGBUILD fails when starting the build at the "pacman -Q scotch" call.

Has anyone tried it yet?

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?
