I installed openFoam on my system running Ubuntu precise, using the instructions at http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php . Everything seems to have installed nicely, but I wanted to try out foamX and it doesn't seem to be anywhere. The guide at http://www.foamcfd.org/Nabla/guides/UserGuidech5.html indicates that is should be installed with openFoam (and I believe everything I read on the Internet, but that's the subject of another thread, I'm sure).

Anyone give me a pointer here?

as much as i know it does not support any more, if you need GUI with OpenFOAM, you can use descritizer

akidess will become famous soon enough
FoamX has been discontinued at least five years ago... A list of alternative GUI's can be found here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/GUI

I do recommend though to get familiar with the command line interface.

Greetings to all!

Oddly enough, we didn't have this question on the FAQ until today. So here it is: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/FA...re_is_FoamX.3F

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks for the information, folks! It's good to have archival information available online, but it's hard to tell sometimes what information is still valid.
