I have installed openFoam-6 on ubuntu. The openFoam runs but when I try to execute paraFoam I get this error message:

FATAL ERROR: The official reader module for OpenFOAM data does not exist on
your system. This means that the version of ParaView you are using was not
compiled with OpenFOAM, or distributed with a packaged version of OpenFOAM.

For information on packaged versions of OpenFOAM/ParaView and compilation of
OpenFOAM/ParaView, see

Alternatively, you might be able to view your OpenFOAM data with the reader
module provided with ParaView by running:
paraFoam -builtin
And when I execute paraFoam -builtin as advised I get :

Created temporary 'dpsap.foam'
/opt/openfoam6/bin/paraFoam: 67: /opt/openfoam6/bin/paraFoam: paraview: not found

Now what could be going wrong and how could I correct it.
