Hi Ehsan,

After the emails we exchanged, there was no conclusion as to what the problem was. Nonetheless, here's the possible solution I had given over emails:

Wait, I think I know what it is... the configuration file got messed up when you ran out of disk space.

OK, run this command:

ls -l "~/.config/ParaView"
Check which files exist there. You should probably be looking for the file "ParaView3.12.0.ini". To remove it, run:

rm "~/.config/ParaView/ParaView3.12.0.ini"
Now try to run ParaView or paraFoam once again!
Best regards,
