Alireza.Beiki is on a distinguished road

I installed OpenFOAM v-1812 successfully.
When I am running a case, I face this problem with paraFoam.

Cannot use ParaView reader module library (PVFoamReader)
The PV_PLUGIN_PATH environment value is not set

Continuing with builtin reader:  paraFoam -vtk

Created temporary 'aeroFoil.foam'
Any suggestion?

some information:
I did not use docker for installation.
I also installed of7 and of6.
paraFoam works properly in of7 and of8.
I am using Ubuntu 18.04

Best Regards

Simple - don't use the plugins. The native paraview support for openfoam data is pretty good and will be improving again in the upcoming ParaView-5.10.0 release.
