Hi, everyone
I am newbie here, and I just have installed OpenFOAM on my computer.
when I run the cavity tutorial:
paraFoam $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/icoFoam cavity

I got the error message as below:
/usr/local/lib.../bin/paraFoam line 57: praview: command not found

Can anyone help me ?
Thanks a lot!
Joey

You need to install the paraview pack (downloadable from OpenFOAM as well). See the installation instructions.

(I hope that command not found was 'paraview' and not 'praview')

I think the "command not found" comes from the shell and I add a line to $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/.OpenFOAM-1.3/apps/paraview/bashrc as below:
export PATH=$HOME/OpenFOAM/linux/paraview-2.4.3/lib/paraview-2.4/bin:$PATH.
The problem solved. Thanks a lot.

I also had the same problem with openfoam 1.7 when installing on Debian Lenny

paraview would run fine when launched manually, but not from paraFoam.
created temporary 'cavity.OpenFOAM'
/home/cfduser/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7/bin/paraFoam: 132: paraview: not found

to fix this, edit the following file

/home/cfduser/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.7.0/etc/bashrc

add this line near somewhere near the top

export PATH=$PATH:/home/cfduser/OpenFOAM/ParaView-3.8.0-Linux-i686/bin

then

$cd
$. .bashrc

Now you will be able to type paraview from anywhere and it will run. Also paraFoam will also be able to launch paraview.
