Greetings Madhu and welcome to the forum!
You should follow the instructions in the official site (starting -->here <--), but for Ubuntu 10.04, install the packages listed in this thread first: Building OpenFOAM1.7.0 from source post #4 and onward
Thanks man will do that
Directory OpenFOAM does not exist
I've installed OpenFOAM 1.6 on an earlier version of Ubuntu and the installation method created a folder $HOME/OpenFOAM. However, I'm currently on Ubuntu 10.04 and followed the package build option on the OpenFOAM website to the letter. However, I now do not have a $HOME/OpenFOAM directory. OpenFOAM has installed it self in the $opt/openfoam170 folder. Is this a problem?
Greetings DtC and welcome to the forum!
The instructions you followed for installing OpenFOAM 1.7.0 deb packages for Ubuntu 10.04 will install OpenFOAM in the /opt folder. This means that you will have to be more careful when working with OpenFOAM than before, because with this installation you cannot write into /opt/openfoam170 without root access. With this installation, you should only work with your own home folders. For example, as you can see in the download page at www.openfoam.com for Ubuntu:
When it comes to building your own applications for OpenFOAM, you should change the last line the the file Make/files to point to a folder of yours, or for example for pisoFoam, change this:
Thank you for your reply.
