TECPLOT File loads in Windows but not Linux


My code creates a TECPLOT .plt file and this loads fine in TECPLOT and in Paraview on my Windows PC but will not load on my Linux Laptop. It says something about “Meshes not found”. I wonder if it’s not choosing the correct loader but in the Linux version I don’t know how to force the dialogue open which gives the loader options.

Any help would be appreciated!

Actually, I may have come across the solution…

If I remove the extension then the dialogue pops up to allow selection of the Tecplot loader and the file then loads. If I change the extension to .dat it then pops up with a dialogue which has a few options including Tecplot.

It seems that using the .plt extension causes the file to load with a non-Tecplot reader…
