I installed OpenFOAM-2.2.0 and paraview using ubuntu package (http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php) and everything went on smooth. When i ran icoFoam, it ran flawless and then i ran paraFoam where i get this error message:

Hi yoddha24,

A quick question: Did you specify to install using the "quantal" repository?

Either way, try running paraFoam like this:
Code:

paraFoam -builtin
If it works, add the following line to your "~/.bashrc" file:
Code:

alias paraFoam='paraFoam -builtin'
Start a new terminal or source the "~/.bashrc" file and it should work fine from now on!

Best regards,
Bruno
