Newbie: Install ParaView 3.81 on OF-1.6-ext/OpenSuse 11.2?
 
Hello,

I am an absolute Newbie on Linux but I set up OF-1.6-ext on OpenSuse 11.2 and it works fine!
Now I want to "install" ParaView 3.81 separately but have no idea to perform this.
I downloaded it from : http://www.paraview.org/paraview/res.../software.html

Now I have a paraview directory with some executables,which I can start by clicking.

But if I want to start paraFoam in my case-dir,then I get this error:

/home/lenama/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/bin/paraFoam: line 100: paraview: command not found

Here is my paraFoam-file:

#!/bin/sh

If I type "paraview" in the case-dir, I get this error:

If 'paraview' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
cnf paraview


There must be a problem with the command "paraview" because the system cannot find it.

Has anyone a idea to solve my problem?

Thanks in advance.

Regards Markus

I got it!

I just forgot to set the PATH of ParaView in the bashrc - file!
