Hi, I'm a new Linux user, using Ubuntu and trying to install openfoam.

I went through steps 1 to 5 of the readme file but then I couldn't run the first tutorial. It seems it cannot find blockMesh:

flo@flo-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/flo-1.4.1/run/tutorials/icoFoam$ blockMesh . cavity
bash: blockMesh : commande introuvable

Any idea what the problem is?

Note that when I run foamInstallationCheck there is no message at all and it closes. I supposed that it meant no error.


Thanks a lot.

Do you have add this line

source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc

to your .bashrc file?

If you don't, add this line to ~/.bashrc

and reload the file:

# . ~/.bashrc

Then try the following command:

# foamInstallationTest

thanks for the reply

the sourcing looks ok.

However I have a problem with the Java configuration and the "no remote shell available"
Some people on the forum have had the same pb, but I couldn't find how to fix this pb...


The installation test gives:

Florent,

from the output message you are using the java and gcc given by your distribution, maybe to solve the problem related with java, download the OpenFOAM version of java and put in ~/OpenFOAM/linux.

Hi Florent,

maybe you have to download the libstdc++.so.6
Please check on your computer the version and update them if you need.

I had the same problem. You need to make sure that you are using the gcc installation supplied with OpenFOAM. Try typing "which gcc" - does that point at /usr/bin/gcc or at something like /home/apps/OpenFOAM/linux64/gcc-4.2.1/bin/gcc? If the former, then check that your cshrc/bashrc file (in the .OpenFOAM-1.4.1 directory) is correctly configured.

the gcc points at
/home/flo/OpenFOAM/linux64/gcc-4.2.1/bin/gcc

I guess the pb was java path:
I wrote
export JAVA_PATH=/home/flo/OpenFOAM/linux/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin

in the .bashrc file and it seems to work now.
The blockMesh . cavity and icoFoam . cavity command are working but FoamX cannot launch...
