Tecplot Chorus Cannot Open Tecplot 360 on Linux – Permission Denied


Tecplot 360 is unable to be opened from within Tecplot Chorus. I receive a “Permission Denied” error.


First, be sure your permissions to the Tecplot 360 and Tecplot Chorus installation directories are allowed to read, write, and execute.

Next, be sure the device’s shared memory file has open permissions as well (/dev/shm/). The /dev/shm/ file is where Tecplot Chorus’ boost libraries write to in order to share information between Tecplot Chorus and Tecplot 360.

Finally, check if ulimit is in effect to restrict the memory usage on the system.
