I didn't have such error, but even though in my case the files you mentioned are located in /usr/include/GL

Mine too. Don't ask me how I have managed it.

I started over by trying to compile Qt from

While compiling I was deleting the OpenFOAM-directorys and unpacking the OpenFOAM-files a second time.

The compilation of Qt is still running, but now ParaView is working...
Very strange, but I'm happy with it!

Maybe the compilation process of Qt fixed something that was not working beforehand.

In my case the following additional steps were required to make paraFoam work.

1) replace ThirdParty libstdc++ with ubuntu's:
cd ~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6/gcc-4.3.3/platforms/linux64/lib64
ln -s /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/

2) install qt4-dev-tools using synaptic package manager (together with dependencies)

3) install latest nvidia driver (to install OpenGL with GLX extensions)

4) recompile ParaView and PV3FoamReader
rm -rf paraview-3.6.1/platforms
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
