Hello everyone,

I have a virtual machine with Ubuntu 16.04.3 on board.
Also OpenFOAM-2.4.0 and ParaView 4.1.0 installed using this guide
PyFoam (version 0.6.7) installed with pip.
I'm interested in functionality of PyFoam that requires ParaView of version 4.3.1 or above. For example, version 5.0.1 that available through apt-get is enough for me. But version 4.1.0 already installed and I need it too.

What's the typical steps to start using another version of ParaView with PyFoam in this situation?

I have dowloaded following version of ParaView from the official website - "ParaView-5.0.1-Qt4-OpenGL2-MPI-Linux-64bit".
Then I tried to set up some environment variables:
export PATH="/home/prodin/ParaView-5.0.1/bin:$PATH"
export ParaView_DIR="/home/prodin/ParaView-5.0.1"
But I'm still getting errors:
prodin@prodin-vbox:~/OpenFOAM/prodin-2.4.0/run/cases/test/damBreak_5$ --state-file=state.pvsm --latest-time damBreak

PyFoam WARNING on line 110 of file /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/PyFoam/Paraview/ : Can't find expected plugin 'libPOpenFOAMReaderPlugin' assuming that correct reader is compiled in. Wish me luck libGL error: unable to load driver:

  Minor opcode of failed request:  34 ()

  Current serial number in output stream:  24

What else I can try?

Also I found out that "libGL" error is some kind of rendering issue. There are some threads and other info about problems with graphics drivers. But I don't know what I can do with that, especially considering that is a virtual machine.

Any helpful thoughts would be appreciated.
