I set some variables manual in a terminal.
That works.

example:
export WM_PROJECT=OpenFOAM
export WM_PROJECT_VERSION=1.2
export WM_PROJECT_LANGUAGE=c++
export WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR=$HOME/$WM_PROJECT
exportWM_PROJECT_DIR=$WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/$WM_PROJECT-$WM_PROJECT_VERSION
export WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR=$HOME/$WM_PROJECT/$LOGNAME-$WM_PROJECT_VERSION

.

Now i add "echo bashrc sourced" at the end of the $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/.OpenFOAM-1.2/bashrc File.
Every time i source my $HOME/.bashrc File or start a new Terminal i get the massage "bashrc sourced".
But why are the variables not set ???

hjasak will become famous soon enough
Not sure - are you doung something special with your shells? Try opening a new tcsh and doing


source ~/.OpenFOAM-1.2/cshrc

by hand. Then check that the variables are there. An equivalent for bash should work too; if I were you, I'd try the "other" shell, i.e. the one I'm not using all the time.

To add "$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/.OpenFOAM-1.2/bashrc" in the "$HOME/.bashrc" file is not enouth.
You have to add "source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.2/.OpenFOAM-1.2/bashrc"

Indeed. Read a bit (man bash) about the difference between executing a shell script from another shell script or sourcing ('source', '.') it.
