when I start FoamX the Case Browser window is completely empty and I cannot start the tutorials.

As suggested in the documentation, I have copied the tutorials to $FOAM_RUN and the OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/controlDict are all set to $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/...

what could be the problem ?

Thank you,
Holger

Hi Holger,

Iam have the same, but more strangely: I used to run FoamX perfectly. But now, after running some calculation, I can not contact the case browser anymore.
Any help?

Brgds,

Mark

I found the problems:
1. I put some small document with project information in the $FOAM_RUN directory, which causes the casebrowser to not connect.
2.
In the controldict file (/home/.../OF/OF-version) the marks <> were entered. Do not ask me who put them there...

The short answer is to stop using FoamX and start using the command-line and your favourite editor. FoamX has been the source of numerous irritations in the past and as of OpenFOAM-1.5 has been dropped completely.
