unable to launch paraview

I tried to install ParaView-5.9.1 in Ubuntu but cannot launch. Initially it was giving QT error:
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin “xcb” in “” even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Available platform plugins are: xcb.
error: exception occurred: Child aborted

I tried to reinstall QT and don’t know not it is giving other errors as attached in the image.

Although I can launch the ParaView by using paraview --mesa.
But its giving warning
qt:qpa.xcb: X server does not support XInput 2
VisRTX 0.1.6, using devices:
0: Quadro RTX 8000
Could you please advise

Thanks
Abhishek

How do you install ParaView ?

I use following steps:

1.Compile

sudo gedit ~/.bashrc
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/ParaView-5.9/bin/

2. Terminal access

sudo ln -s /opt/ParaView-5.9/bin/paraview /usr/bin/paraview
sudo ln -s /opt/ParaView-5.9/lib/paraview-5.9/ /usr/lib/paraview-5.9

3. Launcher icon
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/paraview.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=ParaView 5.9
Exec=paraview
Terminal=false
Icon=/opt/ParaView-5.9/share/icons/hicolor/96x96/apps/paraview.png
Type=Application
x-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=NewWindow
[NewWindow Shortcut Group]
Name=New Window
Exec=paraview
TargetEnvironment=Unity

But no I restarted the machine and I cannot run paraview even using --mesa. I am getting following error attached.

Any specific reason why you are not using the binary release from paraview.org ?

I found this way. It would be great if you could guide on the installation through binaries.

Download https://www.paraview.org/paraview-downloads/download.php?submit=Download&version=v5.9&type=binary&os=Linux&downloadFile=ParaView-5.9.1-MPI-Linux-Python3.8-64bit.tar.gz

Extract anywhere

run anywhere/bin/paraview

I want to link this to all the other users in the system. So all users can run paraview feom the terminal. I think I need to add the path or symbolic link. May I know how to do that, please?

Best Regards
Abhishek

add anywhere/bin/ to your PATH

I tried to download the binaries, extract and then run paraview. But it is giving same error.

./paraview

I resolve the issue, I can access the paraview through UBUNTU Workstation but when I am trying to launch paraview through X2go remotely, I cannot access it. It is giving me the following error.

I even tried the paraview 3.14.1 but this is giving follwoing error.

what is the output of:

How can I update it in UBUNTU 20.04.
May I request if you could share a link, please? I’m not sure about the OpenGl.

Updated the version. But still the same issue

same error

Now if I am running paraview --mesa it is working. But I don’t know why.
