For paraView to work, first you need to install Qt4-Assistant: Applications>>Add/Remove.. then search for Qt4-Assistant, install it
For getting started, make your OpenFOAM user directory from terminal:

Copy the tutorials to your user's run directory

Installation of OpenFOAM 1.6 on Ubuntu 9.10
OpenFOAM is another open source CFD software. In order to install OpenFOAM onto Ubuntu 9.10, the following packages are necessary.
cmake g++ flex++ bison python qt4-designer binutils-dev zlib1g-dev
Use apt-get to install them before trying to install and use OpenFOAM.
:/$ sudo apt-get install cmake g++ flex++ bison python qt4-designer binutils-dev zlib1g-dev
A very brief introduction on the compilation
1. Download the related packages, including the source pack and the binary pack. Double precision is recommended.
2. Create a directory OpenFOAM under $HOME (or at other locations if you prefer), move the downloaded packages into it, and then execute
# ship into $HOME/OpenFOAM/
:/$ tar xzvf OpenFOAM-1.6.General.gtgz
:/$ tar xzvf ThirdParty-1.6.General.gtgz
:/$ tar xzvf OpenFOAM-1.6.linuxGccDPOpt.gtgz
:/$ tar xzvf ThirdParty-1.6.linuxGcc.gtgz
3. After the files extracted, source the file OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc.
# at $HOME/OpenFOAM/
:/$ source OpenFOAM-1.6/etc/bashrc
For convenience, a sentence could be incorporated into the user config file ~/.bashrc to avoid executing the command above manually in the future.
4. Compile ParaView. Ship into OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-1.6 and execute
5. Link OpenFOAM ParaView reader and ParaView.
:/$ cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
