OpenFOAM installation
 
I have had a lot of trouble installing openfoam, v211, I have gone through the whole process with the instructions given on openfoam.org, but always get "help command not found" after typing in th terminal iconFoam -help. I didn't have any problem with the vitual machine and ubuntu installation. I will appreciate any help on this, thanks.

Greetings cesarjets and welcome to the forum!

OK, not much to go on with your description once again ;)
I'm assuming you've followed these instructions: http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php

Replace the first step with these instructions instead:
Code:

VERS=$(lsb_release -cs)     
sudo sh -c "echo deb http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu $VERS main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list"

Then follow the remaining steps once again. If there is any error shown, please copy-paste them on your next post. In the terminal windows, you can select with the mouse and copy with the key combination Ctrl+Shift+C.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Cesar,

Ha AH! The culprit line finally shows itself ;)
Quote:

fi source ./opt/openfoam211/etc/bashrc
Steps to fix this:
  1. Edit the file "/home/cesar/.bashrc" once again.
  2. Find the line I quoted.
  3. Break it into the following lines:
    Code:

    fi

    source /opt/openfoam211/etc/bashrc

    Notice that I removed the dot on the left to "/opt". And don't forget the "fi" command, because it belongs to the commands above it!
  4. Make sure that the last line is the only time it occurs in the file indicated in the first point!
  5. Save the file and close.
  6. Start a new terminal and run:
    Code:

    icoFoam -help
    It should work from now on!

Have fun!
Bruno
