Default How to use paraFoam on a cluster

andreas is on a distinguished road
Dear foamers,

I would like to use the paraFoam command on a cluster. I connect my computer on it with an ssh connection. The cluster has paraview installed, so I can run paraview on the terminal and the program is launched.

What I can do to read my files on the cluster is to create a case.foam as wyldckat said on another topic:
touch case.foam
and then open it on paraview.

What I would like to do is to get in the folder on the terminal, and just type paraFoam and it would automatically open the simulation. Maybe if I write an "alias paraFoam" in the bashrc?

Here is the response of the terminal when I type paraFoam:
[andreasgg@hmem00 36cpx12]$ paraFoam 

FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
Then I build the reader module:
[andreasgg@hmem00 36cpx12]$ cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
[andreasgg@hmem00 PV3Readers]$ ./Allwclean
+ wclean libso vtkPV3Readers
wclean vtkPV3Readers
+ PV3blockMeshReader/Allwclean
+ rm -f '/usr/local/centFOAM/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/libPV3blockMeshReader*'
+ rm -rf PV3blockMeshReader/Make
+ wclean libso vtkPV3blockMesh
wclean vtkPV3blockMesh
+ PV3FoamReader/Allwclean
+ rm -f '/usr/local/centFOAM/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/lib/libPV3FoamReader*'
+ rm -rf PV3FoamReader/Make
+ wclean libso vtkPV3Foam
wclean vtkPV3Foam
[andreasgg@hmem00 PV3Readers]$ ./Allwmake
+ '[' -d /usr/local/centFOAM/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/paraview-3.10.1 -a -r /usr/local/centFOAM/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.1/platforms/linux64GccDPOpt/paraview-3.10.1 ']'
But still paraFoam doesn't work, the same response is givenů Any advice would be appreciated :-)
