Default makeQt fails: can't get ParaView to work

CronusX is on a distinguished road

I just installed OpenFOAM (v1912 from but I can't get ParaView to work and I can't get the makeQt to work to get it to try to work.

I followed the make stack:


but when I get to makeQt, I get the following error:
Starting Build: Qt-
./makeQt: 138: cd: can't cd to [directory]/ThirdParty-v1912/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-
Error building: Qt-
I know I need to do this to get ParaView to work, but I have to get past this hurdle. Do I need to download something else? Isn't ParaView in the OpenFOAM install?
