Default ParaView does not open data

Hi everyone!

I'm pretty new to OpenFoam and paraview, and I got everything I needed installed and everything appears to work fine, except I run into an issue when launching ParaView with the 'paraFoam' command.

I'm running Windows 10, and I followed this guide exactly:
So I'm running a linux shell with UBUNTU 18.04 LTS.

I tried a very basic tutorial to see if my install was working properly:

But when I launch paraview with the command 'paraFoam', I get the following readout:

Created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-[user]'
failed to get the current screen resources
I/O : uncollated

Paraview opens and will display the model, but the data doesn't load in.
I've been trying to figure this out for the past few days, but unfortunately I'm not the most computer savvy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
