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

case "$ParaView_VERSION" in
2*)
# Clean up on termination and on Ctrl-C
trap "rm -f paraFoam.pvs $caseFile 2>/dev/null; exit 0" EXIT TERM INT
touch $caseFile

# since we are now in the cwd, %CASE% is '$PWD/$caseFile'
sed -e s%CASE%$PWD/$caseFile%g \
$WM_PROJECT_DIR/bin/paraFoam.pvs > paraFoam.pvs

paraview paraFoam.pvs
;;

*)
# Clean up on termination and on Ctrl-C
trap "rm -f $caseFile 2>/dev/null; exit 0" EXIT TERM INT
touch $caseFile
paraview --data=$caseFile
;;

esac
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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
