Lightbulb Unable to Run ParaView Through Terminal

ValyrianSeif is on a distinguished road

I'm new to openFOAM.

I downloaded the ubunto app from MS Store, and I was able to "run" the cavity tutorial by getting into the tutorial directory on the bash terminal and writing "blockMesh" then "icoFoam" and that's it.

My problem now is that I'm unable to post-process the tutorial results.

When I write "paraFoam" I get this error:
Invalid $PV_PLUGIN_PATH and -plugin-path= not defined
No supplementary Paraview/OpenFOAM reader modules
Using builtin reader: parafoam -vtk
/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v2006/bin/paraFoam: 420: /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v2006/bin/paraFoam: paraview: not found

After trying to resolve that error by searching on google and forums to be able to open paraview through terminal, I gave up, I didn't find a systematic solution for what I'm dealing with.

So I wanted to open paraView from its own executable and manually opening the results......but I can't do that because I can't find the folders and files on my Windows Explorer of the case, I can't find the 0, system and constant folders or the results 0 , 0.1, 0.2...etc folders.

I know these issues might be obvious for OF users but I'm unable to get my head around what's going on and why these errors are happening.

Please help me out if you can.
