Hello CFD Online,

I've recently tried to upgrade from an older Ansys Workbench release to Ansys 15.0 for my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS based workstation. All I really need is to be able to inspect and modify meshes using ICEM and sometimes post-process or visual results on CFD-Post. Unfortunately, I've only ever had a functional Ansys install on an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS distribution and ever since I've upgraded I've been unable to get this to work.

The installation was performed as root user and then I updated the bashrc file with the PATH for the icemcfd and fluent launchers. Fluent seems to launch from the terminal however, launching icemcfd led to the following error message -

bash: /usr/ansys_inc/v150/icemcfd/linux64_amd/bin/icemcfd: /bin/csh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory


I know this isn't a problem with the PATH I supplied on the bash file since it gives the same error message when launched from the installation directory itself.

Has anyone tried to install and run ansys on Ubuntu 14.04 before? I would really appreciate any assistance or guidance on this matter and I understand that this is not an officially supported distribution.

Thanks

OK I've solved the problem now -

Just had to install the cshell using apt-get install csh

Hope that helps anyone else stuck with this error.

Thanks

I assume that you have installed the latest update service pack - 15.0.7. If this is the case, please use fluent launcher and then choose the release 15.0.7 instead of 15.0.0, then your problem will be solved.
