So you did not mention your desktop that you use. In KDE you can copy this into a text editor and save it in your /home/username/Desktop folder when using Folder View as the file ParaView.desktop
You mark it executable with the terminal command:
chmod +x ~/Desktop/ParaView.desktop
You could also create a bash script file to do this:

Copy the above file into a text editor and save the file as pf in your ~/bin folder (/home/username/bin/pf):
To mark the bash script file executable run the terminal command:
chmod +x ~/bin/pf
Then, to run pf, open a terminal session and type the command:
Perhaps something here might be useful.
