I AM TRYING TO INSTALL OPENFOAM IN UBUNTU. I AM RECEIVING THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE:
Attempting to store changes into '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel'
Fail to create the file

I am using OF 2.1 and Ubuntu 1104

I am new to Ubuntu. Do anyone had the same problem?:mad:

Try posting on the OpenFOAM forum instead of the main CFD forum. Also when you post this question...make sure you include a little more info about the problem. Are you installing the deb package as described on (http://openfoam.com/download/ubuntu.php ) ? Are you compiling it from sources? I would help, but I've never encountered this problem. However, some googling gave me this (http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1631433.html). it might be trying to create a file in a non-existent folder. Good luck.

I am new to linux too.
You can try to login as super user and install again.

I wouldn't install it as a super user. I would install it using your account and using instructions in the link to openfoam.com in previous post. making sure to use sudo (which will require your password)

Thanks to all for the advise. Very useful. I am sorry for use the wrong forum. I will be careful next time.
