Problems with visualization (bundled ParaView 3.8) in Ubuntu 10.04

I just installed OpenFOAM-1.7.0 in a Ubuntu 10.04 machine. I added OpenCFD's repository to my sources.list, using the instructions found in http://www.openfoam.com/download/ubuntu.php. Then I installed both openfoam170 and the paraviewopenfoam380 (and all its dependencies) using Synaptic.
After installing, I created the $FOAM_RUN folder, and tested the installation, running the cavity example ($FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity). It ran fine. When I ran paraFoam, after paraView is initialized, I get a window with two equal error messages: "ERROR: In /home/opencfd/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.7.0/ParaView-3.8.0/VTK/Rendering/vtkOpenGLExtensionManager.cxx, line 358
vtkOpenGLExtensionManager (0x3346d50): Extension GL_VERSION_1_5 could not be loaded."
Every visualization I try to do in ParaView gets me nothing besides new error messages saying the same thing. Does anyone know how to fix this?
The only thing I understand is that I do not have the /home/opencfd directory (it was not created by OpenFOAM-1.7.0's installation - should it have been created?).
Thanks in advance,

I'm going to answer in reverse:
Now, I've just responded to someone who is also having problems with OpenCFD's ParaView 3.8.0 and it is quite an extensive response with various solutions, so if reverting the drivers didn't work or you didn't figure out how to do it, here is the post: Segmentation fault when visualizing in ParaView
