Estes is on a distinguished road
Hi I'm new to both Linux Ubuntu and OpenFOAM ( in fact its the only reason why Im having to use Linux). I just finished installing OpenFOAM and im in the general installation section page of OpenFOAM. I am currently trying to find the file $HOME/OpenFOAM directory in order to install a subdirectory <User>201 , but when I go on the Terminal and type in $HOME/OpenFOAM it says "No such file in directory".

I try to reinstall OpenFOAM from the very beginning, but it says:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
openfoam201 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded

Help! Why can't I find the OpenFOAM directory? How can I fix this?

Greetings Estes and welcome to the forum!

I'm assuming you are following the instructions from here:
It's quite simple: just run the commands they show you. The text is simply a description of the steps themselves, while the commands do everything for you.

Best regards,
