[QUOTE=Paola;322945First, my computer has an architecture: x86_64 (you can see it with "uname -m" command). So I had to set the variable FLUENT_ARCH equal to lnx86...[/QUOTE]
On my home computer:
Code:
uname -m
x86_64
and it is 64-bit system.
I use FLUENT_ARCH=lnamd64
because of FLUENT_ARCH is FLUENT architecture, not architecture of the system!
And u use FLUENT_ARCH=lnx86 because you have x86 fluent package.

Tuning Ubuntu (64-bit) to run Fluent 6.3.26

I think so)
I run Gambit 2.3 x86 with FLUENT_ARCH=lnx86 and Fluent 6.3 with FLUENT_ARCH=lnamd64 on my amd64. I think,if somebody use Intel x64 processors, he must specify FLUENT_ARCH=lnia64.
You can run x86 programms in 64-bit system, but you cant't run 64-bit programms in 32-bit system.
So, when you buying (or downloading) fluent, check its version to be compatible with your computer.

No, lnia64 option is only for Itanium processors, and lnamd64 for both Intel and Amd processors.

This will give you a bunch of files where fluent is installed. Find the one that looks something like: ....../ansys/13.0/v130/fluent/fluent13.0.0/bin/fluent. The last 2 directories "bin/fluent" will be identical. The rest of it may be different depending on your version.

This file bin/fluent is the launcher. The easiest way to launch is by first nothing the path to "bin/fluent", and then typing in the terminal: (substituting your own path for mine)
Code:
cd /apps/ansys/13.0/v130/fluent/fluent13.0.0/bin
./fluent
Stu
Thanks. This was really helpful.
