Hello,
I am using ubuntu 10.4 LTS and installation upto showing the usage message after "icoFoam -help" was no problem.
I also copied the tutorials to my directory, so far so good.

I continued with getting started and tried to start blockMesh, but I get the following message:
blockMesh: command not found

I verified that the program is available. I assume that i have to add some information somewhere to let my system look for it in the right place. I presume it is more of a linux problem than a OpenFoam problem. I am however not that smart (yet) with linux.
Has somebody a clue?
Thanks A

Greetings Anne and welcome to the forum!

Did you do everything in the same terminal window?
When you ran 'blockMesh', did you try 'icoFoam -help' again?
Did you read the (foot)notes in the instructions?

Try starting a new terminal window/tab. Then run 'icoFoam -help' again. If it doesn't find it, then edit once again your "~/.bashrc" file and check if it looks like how the instructions told you to do.
If all OK, then try again following the "Getting Started" instructions!

Best regards,
Bruno

No, I didnot. For the test icoFoam, I opened a new terminal.
I have now run: $HOME/.bashrc and it looks OK now. I guess I missed one of the footnotes. Thanks for helping me out.
