Just use the pre-compiled binaries from the OpenFOAM webpage. It works out of the box for everyone.

Search the Postprocessing/ParaFOAM forum for paraview problems with streamtracers and you should be able to figure out what is wrong.

There is also another thread in the Running/Solving CFD section dealing with Parabolic velocity profile inlets (including source code). Please search the forums before posting. It saves a lot of time for everyone.
