Hi Ehsan,

I wasn't able to use my machine at home for a couple of days, hence not being able to answer you sooner.
One quick way to know which version of a package is available is to use "apt-get changelog":
Code:
apt-get changelog paraview
The version should appear right at the beginning. Use the "q" key to exit the change log list.

The quickest way to install ParaView 4.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 is to get the package directly from www.paraview.org and unpack it where you find it more convenient.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Ehsan,

No, apt-get is for installing Ubuntu's own packages.

I'll quote myself from sometime ago:

  3. And then run paraview from within the bin folder.
If you're new to Linux, my advice is to read the tutorials provided here: http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php
Best regards,
Bruno

Resources -> Download: http://www.paraview.org/paraview/resources/software.php

This command will download ParaView 4.0.1 for Linux 64-bit directly:
Code:
wget http://www.paraview.org/files/v4.0/ParaView-4.0.1-Linux-64bit.tar.gz

The binary packages are usually ready to use, sort-of like "plug-n-play". It's usually what you get on Windows: stuff that has to be bought and is ready to run upon installation.

Source packages = DIY: Do it yourself. You get to build yourself the binaries from the source code. This way you can fix things yourself, in case you find something is wrong with the binaries.

The file is apparently located at "~/ParaView-4.0.1-Linux-64bit.tar.gz", because of this:
Code:
ehsan@Ehsan:~$
The find command looks for the name "paraview", when the downloaded file is name "ParaView-4.0.1-Linux-64bit.tar.gz".

Hi Ehsan,

Sorry, I'm not in a mood to repeat myself. I've found the thread where we have had already this discussion: using the python shell in paraFoam

Best regards,
Bruno
