Hi friends
I use VMware (virtual machine) for ubuntu 13.1.0 and want to install OpenFOAM 2.3.0 source?
afther extracting the files as said in manual (http://www.openfoam.org/download/) and afther enter command {sudo su -} and this comand for installation {apt-get install build-essential flex bison cmake zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev gnuplot libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libxt-dev} I get these lines of information without any installed program..

Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
Package libqt4-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
libqt4-dbus
Package cmake is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Quick answers:
  1. First update your Ubuntu installation. It can be done as simple as running:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
  2. Make sure you have the universe repository turned on, as explained here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/FA..._on_Ubuntu_.3F
  3. Detailed installation instructions for installing OpenFOAM 2.3.0 on Ubuntu 13.10 can be found here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_13.10
  4. Answers here on the forum can take as long as 1 week to 1 month or even more. If you get any answers sooner than that, consider yourself lucky .

thank you
but I found at last the problem . it is about my place proxy server and i did it finally and it is ok. it couldn't connect the server for download through the terminal due to proxy. i asked my server assistant to allow me to use internet without proxy for a half day and now i have openFoam.
but i wonder i may have problems future in each steps of my project!!
thanks

dear bruno,
the installation guidelines are very much helpful. i installed OpeFoam 2.3.x in Ubuntu 12.04 as per the suggestion given in http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Installation/Linux/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/Ubuntu#Ubuntu_13.10
When installing i checked the cmake version and it was 2.8.10. maybe the update and upgrade command installed this version in the computer. so, i could install paraview 4.1.0 bypassing the step 10 in the guideline:

Quote:
Step 10.
Ubuntu 12.04 comes with CMake 2.8.7, but ParaView 4.1.0 needs CMake 2.8.8 or newer series. Therefore, we'll need to do a custom build:
cd
$WM_THIRD_PARTY_DIR
wget "https://raw.github.com/wyldckat/scripts4OpenFOAM3rdParty/master/getCmake" sed -i -e 's=version}\.3=version}.12.1=' getCmake
chmod +x getCmake
./getCmake
./makeCmake
wmSET $FOAM_SETTINGS
thanking you
yours

Thanks for sharing your findings.

Although, from your description, it seems that you are using Ubuntu 13.04, because that's the only Ubuntu version that provides CMake 2.8.10. And even though you provided the link for the section aimed at Ubuntu 13.10, you've followed the instructions meant for Ubuntu 12.04...

Anyway, I didn't write the instructions for Ubuntu 13.04, because the support time for this version ended back in January 2014: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
Oddly enough, the support for 12.10 only ends in April 2014... apparently because it's being used as a development reference for the upcoming 14.04 LTS.

Best regards,
Bruno
