I have just revently installed OpenFOAM 1.6 and I was following the instructions for compiling paraView and I ran into a problem. The computer is telling me that the command 'makeParaView' is not valid and 'make ParaView' does not work either. I don't know how to get it to work.

I need help very soon

The computer is likely correct that it cannot find 'makeParaView' anywhere in your PATH. If you doubt this, use
Code:
which makeParaView
echo $PATH
to confirm it.

Try changing 'cd $WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR' (that's what the foam3rdParty alias does) and then running './makeParaView' from there.

I did that and then I have now encountered a problem with the './Allwmake' command. It gets through a lot of the compiling and then encounters errors and aborts the installation.

For the command 'INCLUDE' in the CMake file, it says that there are too many arguments and that it needs only 1 argument. I looked at the command line that it is having trouble with and there are several files that it inlcudes. How do I fix or get around this error?

You should get someone to help you on your machine. It is too difficult to trace this sort of stuff via email or forum.
